4.38/5 rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice. Bottle says best by 06/03/14.
Appearance: Pours a clear copper amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head that slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing on the glass.
Smell: A very ripe, dank, and juicy hop forward aroma with a big scent of earthy and citrus hops. Big scent of citrus hops upfront with hints of grapefruit, mango, orange peel, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, lemon, and melon. Big presence of earthy and floral hops. Hints of grass and spicy pine resin. Backing presence of malt with hints of sweet caramel, cracker, grains, and yeast. A very good tropical aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, a sharp, bitter, juicy, and spicy hop dominated taste with big notes of citrus and earthy hops. Huge spicy and dank earthy pine resin taste along with some grassy hops. Big citrus hop taste with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, pineapple, apricot, tangerine, lemon, and melon. Hops are pretty sharp and bitter. Background presence of malt with notes of sweet caramel, grains, cracker, and yeast. A very good juicy taste.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy, chewy, and oily. Finishes very dry. Booze is hardly noticeable with the onslaught of hops.
Overall: A very good imperial West Coast style IPA. Lives up to its name with a very bitter and juicy mix of hop flavors.

3.85/5 rDev -7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
A-pours a bright orange/amber color with a fingers worth of white head that slowly fades to leave some lacing around the top
S-primarily hops with citrus, mostly grapefruit, and pine hops with some light bready malt to give a bit of sweetness
T-really massive amount of hops in the taste with big pine and citrus flavors. Malt does not come to play much in the taste at all, actually its almost absent. Alcohol is well hidden.
M-medium body, medium to full carbonation
Overall this is a massive hop beer with not a lot of balance which makes it slightly difficult to finish. Definitely lives up to the name!
