Finally found this bad boy at Hegedorn's (a local indie grocery store). Poured from a 22 into a tulip glass. Nice light copper color, but head is sort of sparse.

Aroma is wonderful. Piney citrus notes as expected. Tastes good as well.

Overall, a quality brew. I will seek it out again.

Hell yes, That's all I want to start off saying. I just tried this beast last night and was so glad I did. I found it at a home brew shop in orange and I coincidentally was going there to buy a bag of hops. I simply just love the smell of hops, nothing better. I have really grown to like IPA's as of recent because of the mix between different hops and aromas that really come out. This beer smelt like a true hop king. I wanted to sit there smelling it all night. The appearance was good, but with a smell like it had, i didn't much care what it looked like. The taste was great too, again, if your a hop lover, otherwise be prepared for a smack in the face. I am not going to say there is nothing else to the beer, but the hops are so prevalent it was hard for me to taste much else. Mouth feel was good, strong. Bitter enough u didn't want to let it sit there terribly long. Overall a must try for IPA fans!

Pours a golden amber with a cream colored head.I can smell the hops 2 feet away - pine needles and lemon zest. Amazingly smooth; a pleasant hops bitterness settles in on the palate after a while, but there is also a distinctive grapefruit tartness - outstanding. Hardly any hint of the alcohol; surprising considering the high ABV. Leaves the mouth dry and wanting more. The name kept me from trying this one before as I'm not usually a fan of extreme hops. I'm glad I tried it because, even though it may be quite hopped up, it is exceptionally well-crafted and blended.

A very good iipa. Very balanced and bold. Tons of piny and citrus notes from the hops. With just the right amount of malt sweetness to balance the beer and give it complexity. Silky, creamy mouthfeel. A very good interpretation of the style. Very Impressive
