From the bottle.
Pour is a honey golden amber with a finger of white soft head which recedes rapidly. Small amount of lacing.
Nose is citrus and sweet, with some lemon, grapefruit, honey and soft piney hops.
Taste is a quick burst of grapefruit and other citrus up front, quickly smashed into oblivion by massive, dry, bitter, woody and green hops. Really just gigantic.
Mouth feel is medium but a little thinner than the hops really want. Leaves a nice resiny coat in your mouth though.
A great Imperial IPA. Especially if you love west coast hoppiness. I like it, although I generally prefer more of a floral and citrus component to my hops. Still really nice.

4.7/5 rDev +13%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
On tap at the Churchill pub in Victoria. Nonic Pint glass
Appearance : Quite a hazy gold/amber but a lot of that was a chill haze; it did start to clear as it warmed up
Smell : Pine, lemon peel, dank and a little biscuity malt thrown in. You can tell this beer is gonna be huge.
Taste : More pine, dank hops. An absolute hurricane of bitterness, it really hits you in waves and because of the way this beer is brewed (mashing and sparging with hopped wort) it has a very complex and intense hop character. Just doesn't fade, lots of hop resins lingering on the palate and far too easy to drink for 9.5% but just awesome.
Mouthfeel : Big and full, lots of body and a really dry bitter finish that just leaves you wanting another sip. Bit of a boozy sweetness on the back end.
Overall : Killer beer, just a massive imperial IPA and for anyone that likes big, crazy double/imperial IPAs this is a must try.
Serving type: on-tap
