look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a golden color with 2+ fingers of head that slowly recedes to a nice cap that leaves some good, sticky lacing

S: Very citrusy with a good floral presence as well. Some malt and fruitiness in the back, but very hop forward

T: Follows the nose. Citrus and floral hops are right up front followed by a mellowing malt presence and some lighter fruity notes. Quite bitter throughout and into the finish. Alcohol extremely well hidden behind the hop wall

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: JA knocks another one out of the park. Extremely drinkable for 8.5% even with the high amount of bitterness throughout. Definitely worth picking up

Deep golden color that is nearly transparent with a huge billowing foamy white head. Some tropical fruit notes but mostly citrus rind on the nose. There is a bit of bright citrus and fruit on the first taste, but the bitterness overwhelms after that. The body is very clean and smooth to drink. Overall, I was taken aback by the level of bitterness on this beer. It's very clean and well-made, but the intense bitterness reminds me of some of the west coast IPAs that aren't my personal favorites.

Had on tap at Area Four. This was raved about by the waiter and so highly rated I was anticipating a lot. I like this brewery. Poured a hazy golden color with a nice head. Hoppy taste hits you right away and this had a nice smooth balance. However....I found an odd after taste. I may be kicked off Beer Advocate, but I didn't like this. Found it difficult to finish, but being a trooper I did. Maybe I need to revisit again
