I really couldn't get over how much this one smelled like marijuana. I retired 10 years ago, but you can't mistake that smell. Terrific flavor. Drank in a pint glass poured from a growler. Would definitely drink again.

Upon taking my second sip all I could think was- This may be the best IPA I have ever had. Only to be second to Sierra Nevada Hoptimum (Drink it warm!!), but I guess that's technically an imperial IPA.

The smell of this beer is amazing, very floral, smells like medical bud.

The taste comes on very crisp, nicely carbonated for a fun bubbly time in your mouth. Very crisp, with the perfect amount of bitterness with some undertones of grapefruit. This beer is a must for any IPA fan.

At first I could only find this beer on tap, but I have been buying it ALOT in 4 packs!

this my "executioner" beer, if I only had one beer to choose I would choose this one! It is a nice hoppy beer and is just strong enough for my taste. Where I live it comes in four packs.
I would highly recommend this beer and I must say that it has become, along with a few from Stone, my favorite beverage!

this is the best IPA on the planet, hands down, the look, the smell, the colour, the taste... mmm.... droool...
i live in canada and there are only a few places that you can get this. and at 18 bucks a six pack i buy most of the stock as it is received.
there is so much hops and oils and deliciousness in this beer it gives me a boner.
its like biting into a fresh grapefruit and flavour exploding all over your tongue.
and one gives me that nice hazy buzz, have one of these and smoke a fatty and you will feel just as nice as i do.
