Pours a clear orange-amber hue, fluffy one finger cottony head, stellar lacing in a F&W snifter.

Nose is pleasantly hop forward, tangerine, grapefruit & pineapple. There are definitely some malts present in the nose, but this has all the components of a hop-bomb in the making. I suspect some dry hopping was part of the process as the aromas are prominent and delightful.

Taste is a mirror image of the aroma, very juicy, very tropical, excellent lingering bitterness one would expect from a mostly simcoe bill with some citra.Alcohol present but quite well hidden for the abv, nicely accomplished.

Mouthfeel is medium, excellent carbonation for the style, wonderful dry finish. Flavors dance across the palate and leave that desirable bitterness that hangs in the back of the throat,dries you out, and invites the next enjoyable sip.

Yup, the ratings are on the money for this one, no bull or hype: an excellent IIIPA that explores the virtues of the marvelous citra hop blended artfully with the simcoe hop.Seek this one out for certain!

Like one of the guys said already: Closest you can get it to Pliny the elder. Very nice aroma, beautiful dark copper color. You can taste this is real triple IPA but very smooth with pronounced resiny, citrusy and piney flavor. EXCELLENT beer !!!! Highly recommended if U can afford $11.95 per bottle !
