4.38/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Kind of an interesting color for an IPA; not the usual amber or reddish orange, this takes on a duller, muted brownish amber. Thin off white head, leaves soapy lacing. Smell is absolutely wonderful: huge, fresh citra hops, grapefruit, and honey. Taste is light on the malt side, huge on the citrusy, resinous, piney hops. Some pineapple and honey sweetness. Feel is moderate to heavy, mild carbonation. Easy to drink despite the hefty ABV. Overall, a great beer if you're looking for some heavy duty IPA action. Hops for days and not overly sweet.

4.24/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

The beer is a murky yellow / orange with a soapy white head. Aromas of dank hops, resin, alcohol, pine. Sticky and sweet. Like sucking on a hopsicle. See what I did there? Aww yeah. Full bodied and palate coating. Certainly hop forward, but there is definitely a strong malt bill and noticeably above 10% abv. Full flavored. One could get f'd up right quick sippin' on Simtra. Tasty.

A - Slightly hazed gold with a finger of fizzy white head, medium lacing.
S - Where's the aroma? I mean really, this literally just smells like alcohol with an acrid hop smell. Pine and some lemon zest, astringent for sure.
T - 131 IBU's is stupid, and the bitterness attests to that, sweet boozy malt, caramel, citrus.
M - Bitter chewy clingy thick and full, lots of burn.
O - After seeing everyone rant and rave on this beer, its a massive let down, hop booze in the worst form.
