Was extremely excited when I saw this in the beer cooler at Bauer Wine and Spirits.

A- This b-e-a-u-tiful looking brew! Pours a delightful orange amber color, with a cloudiness, as bits float around in there. Absolutely gorgeous.

S- A full fledged olfactory assault, as you are hit with the wonderful aroma of those citrusy west coast hops, balanced nicely with the malt.

T- After looking at and smelling this one, I couldn't wait to dive in. Trust me there is no subtlety to the hop taste here, you immediately feel them, as the wooded, piney, hops dance around your palate. Not much going on here but the hops, that's for sure,as they pack a punch!

M- Coats the tongue with that dry, sort of sticky film, and leaves a bitter atste in your mouth.

This is definitely in the upper echelon of IPAs, but may be a bit too bitter and hoppy for some, but for a hophead like me, it's like liquid heaven.

Pours a copper color with over a finger of head that retains for a good long time and leaves a touch of lace on the glass. The nose is definitely hoppy but not terribly complex. The flavor is very similar to the nose – definitely hoppy but not very complex as far as other flavors. This remains a strong effort but it is certainly nothing extraordinary.
