look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

this beer is amazing. such expert pairing of malt, rye flavor and deep rich hop aroma. rarely seen a malty ipa as good as this.

a - deep, dark brown with med ipa head.

s - hoppy, malty notes.

t - can't beat this combination. rich, thick malty flavor with deep, rich hop aroma mixed in. good sugars, not too sweet of finish. i can't believe how well this high alcohol beer goes down. i think i've drank one in about 2-3 min... oops!

m - great rich malty ipa body.

o - a must buy for any ipa or malty ale lover.

S: Bottle poured into nonic

A: Pretty copper with a light foamy head

S: Grapefruit & Malt

T: Very sharp/hop bomb first taste. It quickly shifts gears to a medium malt flavor. Booze throughout

M: Medium body. Curvy in the right places

O: A very enjoyable, dry RIPA.
