Pours a chill hazed amber color with a big cream colored head that falls slowly and leaves some nice sheet lace down the glass.

Aroma is ripe tropical fruits, sprinkles of pine needles,light floral notes. Good hop presence on bready malt base.

Taste is big hop bite, dank hops lots of citrus rind bitterness, with pine notes mingled through out. Good bitterness on this one even though its not fresh. Malt base is just enough to hold the hops.

Mouthfeel is a big medium with carbonation that is lightly peppy.

Overall a pretty descent IPA, big hoppy brew with a good a good kick.

Very very bitter. I don't know if it's the malts or what. It's pretty harsh. It's like a crappier stone ipa

Tall boy into a pint glass. Good 2 finger head. Nice lacing. Dark, amber colored brew.

Smell is primarily hop florelness. Not really citrusy at all. Dry biscuity smell.

Taste is interesting. No where near classic west coast IPA at all. Good carbonation up front. Non-descript but well balanced up-front. Major hop florelness with a tiny bit of lemon. The hop is primarily bitter. I get a bit of funk at the end... Not a skunkiness, but more of a onion sharpness or a fermented food flavor. It's a weird IPA. I guess the draw is the hop style... Not very refreshing... It's a hoppy beer, not a citrusy beer.

Not my favorite IPA. If you like citrusy IPA's stay away. ABV hidden well. I could see it paired with offal, like liver and onions. I give it a 82/100.

Gotta try this again. You had it on tap at Mason Lounge, but it wasn't an environment conducive getting a solid impression from it.

Poured from a chilled tall-boy into a tulip

A = Coppery orange, nice 2 finger creamy-orange head, thick lacing up the side of the glass.

S = Rich, full nose of citrus and pine, tropical fruits and sweet malt.

T = Big juicy pine and orange hop bite, intense bitterness that leaves you craving more punishment for your palate. There is some nice sweetness from the caramel malts to balance it out, and there are notes of sweet citrus, grapefruit, and tropical fruits, perhaps mango or papaya. Alcohol is undetectable.

F = Slick, wet and oily, goes down like water.

O = A deliciously potent IPA, one that I highly recommend.
