3.91/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Dark red copper color. Nice bubbly head, but no lacing at all

Smell - what an aroma! lots of bitterness up front followed by a tropical sweetness

Taste - very bitter from start to finish. didn't get much of the tropical fruit I smelled

Mouthfeel - quite crisp, but the bitterness is strong and quite overpowering

Overall - I am not a huge fan of the overly hoppy beers. I can respect what this beer is doing though and was happy to try it. (456 characters)

Pours amber with a one finger beige head. The aroma is not very strong, but there is some citrus and tropical fruit, and some caramel malt.

Has a mostly bitter taste, balanced by some sweetness. There is citrus zest, white grapefruit, some tropical fruit, and caramel malt. More bitter than I thought it would be.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Oily and resinous hops with a dry finish, and a bitter aftertaste. This beer didn't do much for me. (457 characters)

4.49/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Serving glass: Poured from can into Nonic pint.

Appearance: Very cloudy amber-orange. Much darker than expected. Good sized off-white head at first, which settles back to fine lacing.

Smell: Berry, orange, pineapple, mango and peach. Wonderful aroma.

Taste: Similar hop taste as with the aroma - berry, orange, pineapple, mango and peach, but also some grapefruit and pine, especially at the finish. Solid malt backbone of caramel and maybe even a touch of toffee. Finish is more bitter than most tropical fruit hop bombs.

Feel: Medium to full body, fairly oily with decent carbonation. Finish is very dry.

Overall: Very flavorful and bitter IPA. Just a solid sucker punch overall. (686 characters)

L: Hazy reddish amber under a 1” white foam cap. S: Grassy hop nose. T: Light, sweet and malt then hop, bigger malt and then a long lingering hop finish where grapefruit rind comes to the fore. F: medium body and carbonation. (227 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a Indeed shaker glass. Canned on 3/3/14.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of off white head which slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: A very juicy and dank hop forward aroma with big hints of tropical fruits, pine, and grass. Upfront citrus hops with ripe hints of grapefruit, mango, orange, lemon, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, kiwi, and melon. Earthy and floral hop hints of grassy hops and some spicy pine resin. Solid backing malt presence with some hints of sweet caramel, grains, yeast, and cracker. A really good hoppy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy, dank, and nicely oily hop driven taste with a lot of citrus, pine, and grassy hops. Upfront tropical citrus hops with notes of grapefruit, mango, orange peel, lemon, pineapple, tangerine, apricot, melon, and kiwi. Big presence of earthy and floral hops with some notes of grass and some spicy pine resin. Solid background of sweet malt with notes of caramel, grains, biscuit, and yeast. Very juicy and nicely bitter. Very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy and oily with a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A really good IPA. Great citrus and piney hop flavors with a nice caramel background. Kind of reminds me of Surly Furious. Indeed kills it again with another great IPA. (1,417 characters)
