A recent addition to Beertopia in Omaha... very nice...

Deep copper... bits of an auburn/reddish hue... 1/2" eggshell colored head... bubbles form quite tight.

Sweet strawberry and grapefruity nose... grassy and a little malt. Citrus is pretty big... small touch of pine.

Largely hoppy on the intake... somewhat dry through the swallow and a grainy hit in a pine/citrus finish. Pretty darn tastey for sure... At 10% it sure snuck up on me... sip it slow!

Typical American DIPA with a cloudy dark orange-amber body with a foamy, off-white head. Sweet malt, definitive rye character. Double dose of hops, with slight citrus and grass hints. Bready malt character - the rye is quite distinct.

Nice beer, surprised to see this is 10% ABV.

A - Poured a copper color with an off white head that leaves lacing behind

S - Is of sweet malt up front then the hops

T - This IPA has a seriously strong malt backbone to it the sweet malt does a good job at balancing out the hops

M - This beer has a full body with medium carbonation to it

D - For a 10% abv beer I think this is about as drinkable as you can get very easy to drink to quickly with its very enjoyable taste worth trying
