4.2/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 FL OZ bottle into a pint glass. BEST BY MAY2013. LOT 281.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy brown body with a thin white head. Beer is very "thick" looking.

Smell: Citrusy hop aroma. Somewhat sweet in the nose.

Taste: VERY HOPPY. Bordering on Stone Ruination territory. The bottle label talks about this beer being hopped four times during the brewing process and then dry hopped, all of which is very evident. Grapefruit, tropical fruits and a pine finish. This is actually delicious.

Mouthfeel: Very thick and leaves quite an aftertaste.

Overall: I tend to prefer hoppy ales with light bodies, but at the same time will knock beers I perceive as too "watery". This has a fairly light body (as evident in the 6.2 ABV), but has a ton of hop flavor. My taste buds want to shout Stone Ruination clone, but it is not quite as refined.

Recommended by one of the dudes at the Craft Beer Outlet in Philadelphia.

Best By Aug. 2014

Cute label art of two smiling anthropomorphic hops

a: Clear copper, finger thick offwhite head receded to thin even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Pine

t: Caramel malt followed by plenty of piney hop bite. Bitterness lingers on the tongue.

m: Medium with good body and plenty of carbonation tingle.

o: Bitter is the watchword, caramel malt is overwhelmed by it, but it does deliver satisfying Chinookie..

Overall 84/100

Nice IPA overall, nothing jumps out as memorable. Has a nice malt bill to balance out the surplus of hops. Really easy to drink. Worth a try, yet won't likely seek it out again with a flooded market of stuff I haven't tried~

Hop-laden haze in a toast amber-colored beer. The bone-white head forms a solid crown with a matte finish. Retains exceptionally.

Hunky Chinook hops with big pithy grapefruit and spiny pine notes. Hints of hemp oil, oyster cracker, and black tea bag. Faint whiffs of mint. Very pronounced hop aroma with a lurking toasty grain malt base.

Severely bitter, as Chinook hops tend to be. Bruising with pine, sandalwood, grapefruit whites, peppermint, and astringent herbals. Tea-like maltiness and minerally water are getting lost behind this hop-slaught. The finish is medium-to-long and a little peppery. They write full-bodied on the label, and I get that they mean that this IPA is brimming with residual hop oils clamming up the body. This must be what it feels like when you drink dish soap water. Raucous IPA.
