look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Great beer. Poured a dark copper orange into a 16 ounce pint style glass. The smell was not overly distinctive but you could smell some of the hops. The taste was very strong complex hop flavors. Left good lacing on the glass. There was not any lingering after taste. Had four on tap and subsequently bought two in bottles. The bottles paled by comparison but the draft was a top quality IPA. Stumbled on this beer when my local favorite beer place switched out the WEST Coast IPA with this one day. Discovered the ABV after the fourth beer.

Serving type: on-tap

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!
