12oz brown bottle with pry-off cap poured in a pint glass. Purchased on a trip down to New Orleans.

Amber-orange-copper in colour and hazy. Cream coloured head is 1/4 inch on the pour but recedes to a thin ring with a few islands. Webs of lacing down the side.

Aroma is citrus hops, grapefruit, oranges, lime with a solid malt background. Mouthwatering!

Full blast of hops throughout. Citrus bitterness off the start and long lasting finish. Malt balances things out through the middle.

Medium bodied with mild carbonation. A little oily, but it's cleansed nicely by the carbonation.

One of the better American IPAs I've had. I prefer a little more balance than most American IPAs, but this one isn't over the top bitter and has just enough malt to keep things interesting.

The new recipe for this beer is at 8.1% alcohol, not 7.3.
22oz bomber into a regular glass without a trendy brewers logo on it.
A-nothing too special here. Fairly clear dark orange / burnt sienna color.

S-nice. Lots of character. Getting orange rind, lemongrass, and something like grapefruit but not as acidic.

T-this is no joke. A really aggressive IPA with malt and toffee up front and some seriously citrus hops out back. You could almost wish it was aged a bit longer to mellow out. I really dig this style but I can see where it could be a bit off putting for those not used to strong IPAs.

M-again really good. It's a substantial beer without any unpleasant chewy feeling, which is hard to do with this much hops.

O-this is a great beer for hopheads. I would pick this up again without any reservations.
