4.43/5 rDev +8.3%
On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Light orange in color, good clarity. Oily, clear lacing. Fluffy, off-white head. Aroma is citrusy...tangerine, orange, apricot. Mild sweetness. Taste is nicely bittered, grapefruit now enters the fruit salad. Mild sweetness and alcohol lightly on the back end. Very drinkable, considering the high abv. Very delicious, insane, great beer.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass
Bottle of unknown date (Thanks Green Flash) from Binny's Schaumburg.
Pours an orangish gold color with a robust white head that tends to linger.
Smell is piney with hints of citrus.
Taste is dominated by the pine with a hint of a citrus finish. A odd finish that is almost an earthy taste.
Having tried the original IPA I was a bit underwhelmed. Due to the lack of bottle dating I don't know how great a candidate this beer was but that is how it will always be with them.
Not something I would revisit.

Will pour a five+ finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Crystal clear light amber color. Good carbonation and light-medium bodied. Grapefruit nose and flavor is grapefruit hops and almost enough malt to balance. Light bitter aftertaste. $7.59 for a 22oz bottle from Glen Beverage Glen, NH.

Bomber purchased at the brewery (on Oktoberfest day:)).
Pours a deep clear orange color with a meringue like head that lasts a good while. Massive tracts of lace coat the glass. Bitter, citrusy nose with some light malts and notes of celery and pepper. Huge bitterness in the taste, with some perfumey floral character. Orange and woody, dare I say garlic (or is that just suggestion?) notes mix in there as well. A very beaten down bready malt manages to show itself a bit here and there. The mouthfeel is full bodied and smoothly carbonated. Lots of bitterness in the long finish. Alcohol is very well hidden by the hop barage.
This is a great 'San Diego IPA', very hoppy with a unique hop profile, less piney and grapefruit, more straight up bitterness and other flavors. Give this a try for sure.
