Smells really good. 95 IBUs are very evident, though. Not my favorite.

Smooth on the palate, with tastes of citrus and pine but with an overwhelming bitter aftertaste. Bitterness hides the other nuanced flavors. Tastes like an ipa, rather than a double.

12 ounce bottle poured into a Belgian style tulip

Aroma: big citrus hop aromas on the nose, there's a slight onion type aroma, getting a slight alcohol, smells great.

Appearance: a nice creamy white head with tons of tiny bubbles, orange amber color, tiny bubbles coming off the bottom, nice sticky lacing, head lingers but has dissipated, clear.

Taste: big bitterness hop flavors up front, very dry on the palate, citrusy, grapefruit flavors, the bitterness lingers getting some alcohol burn, but not much, very drinkable for 8%

Feel: Medium dry mouthfeel

Overall: this is another one of my favorite IPAs, so glad I live in CA where its readily available, fairly priced for $7.99 a four pack, it's heavy on the palate, two and I'm done but it's a world class IPA, a must try for the hophead.

Part of a pricey eight pak that hasn't disappointed one iota, so let's give this selection a whirl. Popping the top I get a very fresh piney citrus waft with a nice sweet backbone under it. Pours to a cloudy bright orange with a one finger head that recedes to a quarter inch and hangs out. On the taste this brew has an exceptionally smooth citrus and pine taste up front with a sweet middle followed by a citrusy bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is superb with a smooth as silk viscosity and a sharply sparkling carbonation that breaks it up oh so slightly. Look up IPA in the dictionary and you see this brew. Nicely masked 8.1 ABV that creeps up on you and gives you a nice glow. A winner.
