Appearance - Pours a semi-clear, beautiful amber with a 2 finger width white head. The head takes a few minutes to die down, but leaves behind a resilient, sticky lace.

Smell - Big citrus hops, backed with a faint pine hop aroma.

Taste - Pine hops and a bit of grapefruit to start , then a big orange peel-like bitter hop comes in and dominates in through the aftertaste. There's some sweet malt notes playing off somewhere in the distance, but they don't detract from what this beer is all about.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, wonderfully carbonated. Despite it's bitterness, easy to swallow. Crisp, and fairly clean.

Overall - A well made 2IPA. Don't let the 102 IBU's fool you, for the style it's quite drinkable. Certainly one I'd buy again.

On-tap at Flanny's in Tempe, AZ.

A: Golden-orange in color. Good lace.

S: Heavy hops. A little funky and earthy. Got the same kinda thing from the bottle a while ago.

T: Huge West Coast hops but they taste a bit old and funky. I think this beer just doesn't do it for me. Might be too hopped for its own good.

M: Can be cloying. Dry but smooth and easy drinking for the style. A bit of booze comes through.

O: I wanna like this beer because of the name and rating but it's just not gonna happen. I probably won't try it again unless I'm at the brewery.

Bottle from Beertopia in Omaha, NE
No bottled on date
Poured into a standard US pint glass

Medium-sized bubbles form a sponge-like head that's off-white in color. Subsides in about a minute, leaving some small washes of lace along the sides of the glass. Body is transparent, golden-orange in color, with yellow highlights. Carbonation is quite active and readily visible.

Aroma of orange, grapefruit, tangerine, a bit of lemon, and lesser pine scents. Fairly enticing, but nothing too amazing.

Taste opens with a strong combination of pine resin and citrus flavored hops (particularly orange and lemon). This continues, with increasing bitterness, through the end, where a bit of pale malt sweetness opens up alongside the bitter citrus. Lingering aftertaste of bitterness from hops.

Comfortable mouthfeel via medium-intensity carbonation with a medium-heavy body, this slides right along the palate with an enjoyable viscosity. Finish is dry and a bit sticky from the ethanol or malt.
