Always glad when this one appears every year. Filled another half-gallon growler and was rewarded at home after filling a couple of 24-oz glasses with a very healthy fine-foamed head, aroma filled with citrus and hoppy goodness. Brewer claims 6 lbs hops per barrel, glass feels like that much character at least, very clean flavor and no unpleasant after-taste. This one feels very dry on the palate and the high ABV is anything but readily apparent in this smooth and very drinkable Yellowhammer DIPA, a classic "lawn mowing" beer with bite.

This is what I consider a good everyday beer, not too heavy and nothing negative to make you search elsewhere. Consistency is a bit thinner than the Stone products, but this is a good daily brew for hot summer days and nights. There are some rosemary pine accompaniments that enhance the character, but overall a very simple and drinkable ale I could consume on a regular basis.

4.03/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 32 oz growler into tulip glass.

A: Deep yellow with slight one finger head. No lacing to speak of.

S: Big citrus, alcohol, and hops. A bit of piney resin.

T: Grapefruit, orange peel, bitter hops. Alcohol is apparent but enjoyable.

M: Medium body and fair carbonation. Was looking for a bit more head on this one, but otherwise very nice.

O: A very solid IIPA. Very hop forward but nicely drinkable. One of my favorite local IPAs.

Serving type: growler

I was left wanting nothing on this except another pint. Perfect taste. Well balanced. Would highly recommend. I don't know what more to say other than you should give this a shot if you appreciate Imerpial IPA's. The balance of flavor really exploded your taste pallet and goes well with most anything.

I really love this brew. Poured a bright golden yellow and slams a massive hop punch up front to the palate. The brew is very smooth for a big DIPA and has a great mouth feel. Just the right amount of hop oil and well balanced. If you are a hop head looking for an awesome hoppy local brew you have found it in this one. Also try their Tobacco Road Imperial Amber wow delicious.
