This is a great I.I.P.A. I am surprised at the color, it's much more pale that I am used to for the style. It doesn't matter, this here beer is 9.4%abv and it is hidden well by a strong hop assault on the tongue immediately upon entry of the mouth. Wonderful bready malts show themselves after said assault. I am a huge fan of this beer. The price is right, at Beertopia they were selling it for 5.49 a bomber. Fan-f*ckn-tastic. I wanted a new dipa to try as I am such a fiend I've exhausted the limited selection we can find here. I would love to trade this with someone for other dipas I can't find here. I have a dipa problem.

A: Poured a clear golden copper color with a respectable more than one finger head. The fluffy white head feel after a few minutes to a ring and lacing was above average.

S: OMG, this is amazing. The first smell is fresh, juicy, oil, dank weed. Perfect nuggets. Then there is amazing herbal, piney hops with notes of tropical fruit. Its simply amazing.

T: Comes on with tropical fruit, think pineapple, and then quickly fades to more mild fruit. Pine forest comes in and just overwhelms then gives way through a leafy, oily profile to a crisp bitter finish. The middle is incredible with huge pine, pepper, a bit of lemon and mint and everything you wan. Very bitter bite in the end.

M: Can I even tell, the taste is so good. Its beyond medium with some light syrup and then a very big fizzy feel.

O: Wow, blows my mind. This is a hop bomb of epic proportions. The smell and taste are killer and complex for their seemingly one dimensional nature. A must try! So hoptastic!

pours a clear golden, with about a finger white with nice laced rim left behind.

has a piney, and fruity(pineapple), floral aroma

taste follows the nose. pineapple and some floral, not really picking up on the pine like i thought i would.

light-medium bodied pretty high carbonation. leaves the mouth watery.

overall its a pretty solid ipa
