4.15/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Don't think I'd heard of this brewery before getting this in a recent trade. Thanks to BeerThirty for the bottle. Tasted 7 April 2013.

Pours a faintly hazy medium orange. One finger of dense white head, slowly relaxes to a cap and some thick bulging lacing. Nice.

Smell is fruit all the way, and mostly tropical. Mango, peaches, and a bunch of citrus. Pine needles back there in the background. Lovely.

Taste is quite good as well, with a lot of those fruity hops showing through in the flavor. Sweet, then fruity, then sweet again, before turning to a moderate clean bitterness. I'm really enjoying the sweet pulpy fruit (peaches again) in the taste. Yum.

Mouthfeel is quite interesting. Carbonation starts out buzzy, tingling on my lips. And it stays at that level, just a bit less than too much. Otherwise medium-bodied, a little sticky, and moderately persistent. But that carbonation makes it a much more interesting beer.

I really liked this beer. Great hop presence in both the smell and the taste, and a fantastic mouthfeel. Drinks like much less of a bruiser than its ABV would suggest.

3.78/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bomber into a shaker. First impressions: pale copper with an earthy malt aroma and just a hint of citrus - Not overwhelmed at this point. Make it through the single-finger foam and as the scent hinted at, a medium caramel flavored malt and some hayseed hops with the scales tipped towards the malt. And the follow up? A million little hungry bitter bugs biting the back of my tongue, and like the Energizer Bunny they keep going and going and going...

Not really what I had hoped for from a 2xIPA, and not a top-shelf IPA, but not bad either. Would't turn one down if someone bought a round but wouldn't add it to my shopping list either.

(Still going!)
