bomber, no freshness/brew date noted
audible "quisch" as the cap pops, 2 fingers of head stack up in the ole glass, barely orange hue, lacing is eh but there is the tell tale legs that should speak of the ABV, ample carbonation streams up from the nether regions re-supplying the head, keeping it from dissipating beyond one nice layer, pretty good looking, you'd definitely bang her at 2 am but at 8pm you would be looking for other options.
amarillo grapefruit goodness anyone ? resin, thick honey, irish spring clean, did 3 floyds brew this? pretty much straight forward but then this does not need to dance, nice juicy hops.
kind of middle of the road, I was expecting a bit more bitterness or more malt in the taste. Then boom the bitterness really asserts itself in the aftertaste. this is like sucking on grapefruit pith (which I happen to like). The after glow of this brew seems to far surpass the actual sipping... ? weird. let's try some more...
same deal, it is like drinking water with an aftertaste. the body is a bit light, there really doesn't seem to be enough malt to give this heft. The ABV does warm the belly after a few minutes... This beer is confounding. I can't say it is bad but it leaves a lot to be desired in a crowded genre.
Middle of the road DIPA, very easy drinking if you can deal with the big bitterness on the back end. Not worth sacrificing a goat over.

4.18/5 rDev -3.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass
A- Very pale gold with thin-thin white head
S- Very hop forward but not as potent as I would like. I get a mix of citrus and piney hops
T- Hoppiness I wanted from the smell comes through on the pallet. Sweet and citrusy with a nice yeasty/bready end
M- Smooth but sticky on the backside
O- Enjoyable IPA. Well balanced but still hop forward.
