look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

The smell of this is almost unmatched. It has a very concentrated, thick, resinous, juicy citrus and tropical fruit hop smell. I also get a sweetness on the smell as well. The taste really backs up the smell with that same tongue digging resinous sweet hop flavor which has fruity flavors reminiscent of citrus grapefruit and maybe some more subtle fruit flavors like mangoes and maybe some raspberry. Its just such a roller coaster ride of hop flavor that ends in a pleasing hop bitterness that isn't too high but high enough to where it seems very potent on the palette.

The 8 percent is seriously not even noted and I'm sure the vicious hop flavor just covers this up unbelievably well. This is most definitely the cheapest and best 22 oz bomber of quality IPA I've ever had. This seriously has the hop flavor and quality of high end 12 dollar bottles. Its awesome how the flavor is more of a sweet bitterness rather than a dry sharp bitterness which is why some people might question the 102 IBU's. I also get some piney hop notes as well on the taste as it warms more. I really can't say enough good things about this beer. A plus all the way around.
