Not overly hoppy. I normally don't like IPAs but I liked this one.

Pours slightly hazy medium amber with nice ruby highlights. Creamy light tan head, almost off-white. Bubbles continue to rush towards the top. Sticky lacing.

Grapefruit, orange, sweet tangerine in the aroma along with pine. Honey and caramel malt fill in as well. Toasty malt underneath.

Tangerine and grapefruit in the flavor. Juicy hop character. Almost seems sweet initially but finishes dry. Fruity hop character gives way to resiny and piney. Biscuit and toast make up the malt presence but allows the hops to take over.

Medium carbonation with medium slick body. Creamy but not chewy. Sweet impression initially but finishes quite dry.

Well brewed with delicious hop character. Shows that you don't need experimental hops to make an excellent hoppy beer.

A - Pours an extremely dark ruby orange. Nice two fingers of lightly tan, thick creamy head. Solid lacing.
S - Wonderful sweet bouquet of persimmons, apricot, peach, nectarine, grapefruit and hops.
T - Sweet hoppy peach and grapefruit, bit of lightly sweet rye in the back end of the beer. No trace of alcohol, impressive for the high ABV.
O - An amazing, 5 star IPA. A must try for IPA fans!
V - Four pack of tall cans, high priced but worth it for the quality.
