4.35/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Mostly clear amber-orange pour with an off-white two finger head with great retention and crazy lacing. This is a hop bomb in every way. Huge hoppy, floral nose with tons of grapefruit, pine, and resin up front along with hints of tropical fruit, and perfume. The taste is complex and just as hoppy. Loads of bitter, resiny, mouth puckering goodness with hints of grapefruit, pine, fresh hops, orange peel, along with some subtle mango and apricot. The mouthfeel is thick and oily with a tangy, bitter, dry finish. With that said, there's just enough of a sweet caramel maltiness to add at least a measure of balance to this insanely bitter beer. Overall, this ranks right up there with all the elite hop bombs and truly lives up to its name.

From a bottle into a pint glass in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Smell is mild and of pine/hops.

Appearance is dark golden bronze.

Taste is a very smooth, nice malt to hops ballance.

Mouthfeel is clean and smooth, no alcohol bite.

Overall a very good California IPA easily accessible here in Nebraska...gbr!
