4.48/5 rDev +7.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
bottle purchased from Total Beverages in Murfreesboro, TN
appearance: very beautiful amber, 2 finger white head that dissapears quickly
smell: piney, resiny, earthy, citrusy, less grapefruit than other IPAs, more hops, hops, and more hops. this is a great smelling beer.
taste: very hoppy, in the same class as hop stoopid and ruination, this is surely a "palate wrecker". very bitter earthy finish, somewhat dry, but resolves nicely with a fruity satisfaction. Very refreshing, also some notes of grapefruit, not very much malt in this one.
mouthfeel: perfect carbonation, very smooth
overall: I'd have to do some side by side tests to compare this with Ruination and Hop Stoopid, but this is equal if not the winner for the hoppiest beer i've tried. It's so bitter, yet so damn tasty and refreshing. Give this to a non hop head and they will give you the "o" face like they just took a shot of bourbon. I bought the last 4 pack of the year at my local store, I will be buying more next year.

Reasonably fresh bottle with best by date of 7/2/14.
Full on hop aroma with hop oil, citrus, grass, grass.
One inch head and quite clear with amber (brown) body. Decent lacing.
Full hop flavor resembling the aroma with a stronger hop oil presence leaving a bit of distaste for my buds, but it isn't overwhelming or dominating thus allowing the other more enjoyable flavor to show forth. Solid malt body that balances and blends well.
Pretty big and quite enjoyable body with enough carbonation to accent the hops nicely and working well with the richness of the drink.
A solid DIPA. Too much hop oil and probably not quite as complex hop flavors as others. But this one drinks really nicely.
