Pours a brilliant copper color with a solid two inch cream head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving spotty lacing.

Tropical and citrus fruits begin the aroma, with mango, pineapple, and tangerine leading to bready caramel malt and a slightly dank finish. Onion and fresh cut grass add complexity.

Citrus dominates the flavor, as well, with grapefruit and muted lime entering into the fruit salad showcased in the aroma. Bitter pith finishes the brew. The bitterness is not overwhelming, but it cuts the flavor profile short. Toasted malt and slightly cloyingly sweet caramel tie the hop character together, but allow the fruity flavor to really shine.

Body is slightly full, with moderate carbonation and noticeable alcohol warmth.

Overall, a very good double ipa. Delicious hop aroma and flavor, not overly bitter, but like some dipas, a bit on the sweet side. Hop character was not extreme, as in some of the more brutal examples.

Pretty Good. Pale orange with a fleeting bright white head. Prunes and sweet malt dominate the nose, with a little hop bitterness in the background. Hops arent overly flavorful, but are certainly there for bittering. Nice and balanced. Initial dry fruit/ bready sweetness falls into a sharp hop bitterness,although both linger through the finish. Nice and thick for an IPA with sharp but passive carbonation. Good beer, but probably not exactly what you are looking for if you want big hop flavor and aroma

22 ounce bomber poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden color with a 1 finger head and some lacing.

S: Tons of citrus hop aromas along with some floral hops, mild malts, and some alcohol. Nice inviting smell.

T: More piney hop flavors than citrus along with some faint malts and a touch of alcohol.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink.

O: This IPA gets a solid 4. It's not mind blowing, but cheap and tasty. I'll gladly drink it anytime.

A: Pours a clear amberish orange with an initial one-finger white head which fades to a thin cap leaving faint rings and splotchy lace.

N: Big time citrus (grapefruit, orange, tangerine) and tropicals (guava) along with dank sticky herbal weed-like notes. Some floral and malt too.

T: Juicy resinous extractables with pronounced citrus and herbal taint. Some caty and pine mix it up with the malt backing.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Slick and oily. Well balanced for a hop bomb. Bitter and dry finish.

O: Hard to beat for the price point. A really good hop monster here.
