4.58/5 rDev +7%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5
Appearance - golden straw color, nice lacing, one finger egg white head
Smell- extremely dank nuggets...errr....piney hops, a bit of citrus. Frickin fantastic smelling and definitely one to be reconded with. The hops are stronger in the smell then almost any IPA I've ever had. Rivaling Surly Furious for sure.
Taste - Resiny hops in the front, citrus in the middle, and resiny hops in the finish with a lasting bitterness, but with some sweet malt mixed in in the end. The end of the sip is the first time you realize there are some malts in this beer.
Mouthfeel - nice and thick...true West coast IPA with a thick mouthfeel and crazy hops. Carbonation is a little low for my taste.
Overall- Wow...this is an American IPA to the max. The hops are dominated by resin, citrus, definitely some pineapple in the flavor and aroma, floral/herbal notes in the flavor, and just an amazing hop profile. It surely is dominated by Simcoe or Chinook hops, but definitely some complementing varieties in there. Drinking this beer is like chewing on dank hops and I love it!

4.34/5 rDev +1.4%

A: Pours a clear copper/orange color. A dense, pillowing white head rises to over two fingers. Excellent retention, and rings of lace left all the way down the glass. This is a looker.
S: Very aromatic. Floral and grassy up front, light piny and tree sap aromas. A honey sweetness to balances everything out. I substantial, but not overpowering bitterness lingers.
T: Really well balanced here. Floral and grassy hops up front. That gives way to a lightly resinous character. Again, I get a honey sweetness which makes for a great balance. Lingering fruity flavor, like a honey do cantaloupe, and some bitterness. Well done.
M/D: A medium body with a good effervescent bite. Crisp carbonation and so clean. This drinks so much easier than the 7% would make me believe. With such a great balance this is so easy to drink.
This has always been one of the standard bearers from the style. I am not a hop head in the least, but the balance between the hops and light honey like sweetness is great. Really enjoyable, and highly recommended.
