look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
A: Three fingers of fine white billowy head was formed in the English style pub glass when poured from the bottle. Great retention. When it did fall a small amount of lacing was left behind. The beer is a gold color with a small haze, but overall pretty standard looking IPA, but with legs.
S: Huge tropical fruit nose, wow. Passion fruit, kiwi, pineapple peaches with an undertone of strawberries. Almost no malt detected, very clean and bright. Alcohol noticed when the beer sat for a few minutes and off gassed the hop aroma.
T: Bright and bold hop bitterness flavor off the bat, the flavor reminds me of fruit juice. Tropical fruit hop flavors similar to the aroma, kiwi passion fruit, mangos, peaches. The malt flavor is very low only a slight toast character.
M: Big alcohol warming (good in my opinion since it drinks like the fruit juice it tastes like) Very dry and light bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: The name serves it justice, Citra and Simcoe are the flavors coming through, but the Citra is dominant. The gravity on this beast is deceiving and I would love a lower example to make it more sessionable, but a nice beer either way. Share it with your favorite hop head and you’ll be appreciated.

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.
