Big thanks goes out to kmurray8621 for sending me this long long time want as an extra! Awesome!
Pours a murky amber brown color, with a nice off-white head sitting on top. Retention is pretty good, but lacing is sort of lacking.
I was a bit concerned this bottle wasn't the freshest because I couldn't find a freshness date, but as soon as I cracked the cap my fears where put to rest. Huge citrus and grapefruit notes dominate at first, and finally a sweet malt backbone comes through as it warms just enough to detect. Definitely all about the hops in this one.
Holy moly, this is one bitter IPA! This has the hop presence of a DIPA, but the alcohol content of an IPA. Piney and resiny hops, with a light floral and citrus character in the finish.
Mouthfeel is dry and light in body with an intense bitter aftertaste. Drinkability is great.
Overall, it's pretty much exacty what I thought it would be. The hops of a DIPA all crammed into an IPA. Intense and a great brew to have, wish I had more access to it!

This beer is alright, I have had too many great ones lately. But this one is not bad. I need to try the more hardcore ones.
Appearance: Dark golden amber. Some Head but not too much not a bad beer on the above average account.
Smell: Not a lot going on compared to others .But it was a good beer.
Taste: Enjoyable, some hops, actually strong on the hops but it also has a sweet malt backbone that balances things out. Not the best tasting beer that I have had but for a four pack you can do much better, in my opinion.
Overall: I didnt think this was a bad beer but there are better ones too. Solidly above average but not outstanding.
