Clear amber body with an endless stream of bubbles. Clingy head that melts off the sides of the glass. Nice to look at. This has a glorious smell - Candied tropical fruit. The aroma definitely steps up. Upon first sip, I say...this is better than Elevated IPA. I could use the word "dank" to describe this beer. Sweet tropical fruit + easy grapefruit + dank. Nice finish, subtle sweetness, super clean, no aftertaste, makes me want more. I want that taste, I have to take another sip. Very drinkable. The feel is slick and somewhat creamy. How'd they do that?

Overall - Wonderful beer. This hits all the high benchmarks for a "World Class IPA." This reminds me of Pliny the Elder...just different. I think this IPA has legs and is a top contender in the IPA division. Or maybe, it is because I haven't had a beer in three days, and my taste buds are in such need of some hops, that they are hyping this up...I don't think so.

Deep, heavy and bright amber-orange. Nicely hazy, completely especially towards the end of the bottle. Brilliant aroma of big fresh dank hops. Very resinous and bitter. Big fruits, sugared grapefruit, orange, citrus. Very clean, crisp pine throughout.

Fantastic, another elite IPA brewer.

4.5/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber color; a bit of a bubble show produces a two fingered head; good retention and webs of lacing linger

Smell: You can smell the dankness as soon as the cap is popped; hemp and pine tones predominate

Taste: There is a bit of caramel and English fruity tones coming through from the malt, but you have to taste that quickly as the hops overpower in short order; like the aromatics, the bitterness is filled with hemp, pine and some tropical fruit tones (papaya and guava); the sweetness from the malt lingers underneath but it is hard to find it when the palate is overwhelmed by IBUs; I would swear there is a hint of chili pepper in there, too

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Just a masterful IPA and in a distinctive style that is representative of neither coast

Thanks, sunkistxsudafed, for the opportunity
