4.35/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

16oz can. Dated 9/9/2014, poured into a teku glass 10/10/2014.

A- Hazy, darker caramel brown body. Two finger offwhite head that is quite thick and recedes into a thick, substantial collar that sticks around for a while. Rings of lacing complete the picture. [4]

S- Grapefruit, passion fruit, orange, caramel, hop resin. Very fruity in the aroma, brings out a bit more of the malt sweetness manifesting as toffee, adding to its overall complexity as it warms. [4.25]

F- Toffee, citrus, grapefruit, a bit of pine. Very, very aggressively hopped and quite bitter, complex and not one-note in any way. Nice caramel, toffee malt backbone balances things out, even gives a slight hint of a barleywine caramel-forward sweetness. Pine and grapefruit skin on the finish. [4.5]

M- Medium bodied, nicely carbonated, palate-wrecking pine and citrus skin bitterness throughout. Resinous at first, gets drier as it warms up, very smooth and substantial. Very enjoyable to drink. [4.25]

O- Definitely helluva hopped up- bursting with fruity hop flavours with a nice strong malt backbone that's enough to add plenty of sweetness to balance out the bitterness. This is a very good hoppy, bitter, resinous beer that is also easy to drink. [4.25]

Final score: 4.35

16oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy deep, dark gold with a one finger thick white head. Really good staying power for the head with decent lacing as well.

Aroma just explodes with tropical fruit in a huge way. You can tell right away this is one serious IPA and it is everything you would expect in the style.

The flavor doesn't disappoint either. Loads of tropical fruit that was present in the aroma along with a decent touch of pine as well. High bitterness that lingers for a long time after the rest of the flavors fade. Just a little sweetness.

Overall, a truly outstanding IPA and one of the better ones out there. Can be hard to find but it is available in the Asheville area so you can find it beyond Charlotte. I'll need to stock up next time I make a trip over the mountains.
