Big thanks to Bilco for a surprise can of this gem

Consumed 9/11/14

A: Medium orange with a lot of honey and some tangerine around the edges, copper at its core - lightly hazy (reasonable considering the stupid amount of hops in this) - pours with a medium, white head, fades to some wisps, leaves some nice splotches of lacing [4]

S: Gloriously hoppy - straight-up hop cones and hop pellets - deeply resinous and oily - fresh pine, a ton of citrus, and other fruit - juicy, ripe grapefruit flesh, pineapple, mango, and some other tropical aromas - very floral, herbal, with some dank qualities - not just a hop bomb, either, with some solid malts - pale and caramel, with some breadiness, light biscuit [4.5]

T: Ripe grapefruit flesh, orange, and straight-up hoppy goodness - fruity and juicy, with some huge citrus and tropical notes - grapefruit, mango, pineapple - above average bitterness with some lingering pith - pine with some big herbal and floral hop flavors - pale and caramel malts - lightly toasted bread with perhaps a touch too much sweetness [4.25]

M: Medium body, smooth, nice carbonation, very drinkable even with some lingering hop oils [4]

O: This does make me want to roll on the floor [4.5]

This is one of the best IPAs I've had in a while. I am truly impressed with the insane amount of hops crammed into a drinkable beer.

Appearance: pours a deep burnt orange, almost a red. a finger of a white head with an extremely strong retention and leaves a pretty strong lacing behind. hazy and nearly opaque but a little bit of brightness to it. 4.25/5

Smell: as soon as you crack the can, strong juicy hops, strong juicy citrus along with blackberries. tropical fruit and pine. malty sweetness just barely works it way through all the hops. 4.25/5

Taste: opens with hops, varieties include citrus, berries, tropical fruit, pine and maybe some floral. malts are sweet and a mix of caramel and toasted bread. comes off a bit on the grassy side. 3.75/5

Mouthfeel: good medium full feel. a touch try and some lingering bitterness. 3.75/5

Overall: I had this at the brewery about a year ago and was very surprised to see how much it blew up. Its a very good ipa, but with the market of ipas, I see it falling just short of the uppermost tier.

Really nice IPA. Orange gold hue, rich creamy mouthfeel, honey and sweet malt background. Living in California, this one reminds me of some of the sweet-style NorCal IPAs we have around here, like Drake's Denogginizer and the great Knee Deep beers. This one fits right in with them. Delicious. Highly recommended.

Thanks, Bill.

Poured into my Great Lakes 25th Anniversary bruges hybrid tulip...

A. Pours a clear, deep honey gold with traces of copper in the light. Soapy, lush two finger off-white head with sticky gobs of lacing all over my glass. Outstanding appearance.

S. Initially tropical and then a big wave of dank weed smacks me right in the face. It's all grass from then on out, with a little bit of pine resin and a healthy malt backbone to boot. Very good.

T. Follows the nose with sticky pineapple, grapefruit zest, pine resin, dank hops, and floral notes. It's very in your face hoppy with heavy herb and even some green onion.

M. Again, very hop forward with a lively and slightly spicy feel. A big, bold beast of an IPA, yet very balanced with some fine biscuit malt.

O. A fine IPA with a more traditional profile of herbal, dank, floral hops. It's brash in a good way, with just enough citric touch and malt backbone to keep things grounded within reason. And that is probably the most significant accomplishment here...phenomenally pungent hop aroma and flavor of the traditional, weedy kind that is checked remarkably and leaves you with a relatively balanced, caramel smooth mouthfeel. I give this high marks.
