From bottle. Pour is extremely murky, dark golden amber, tight white head. Nose hits you from a distance with a big hop punch. Nose is a bit messy, lots of sugars and malt that aren't really tight but a huge citrus punch blasts the nose. Taste is the same, malt is very sporadic and unrefined, doesn't get too sweet but you can tell this is big. Hops really drown out any other flavor, full citrus blast with a hint of tea and a fairly light bitterness for the hop punch. Well carbonated and semi dry finish. Interesting beer, straight up citrus hop heads dream.

A - Pours a super-cloudy golden orange. Almost opaque. Nice head forms after a vigorous pour. The retention is decent, and the lacing is nice. All around an excellent looking beer.

S - Blast of tropical hops and some sweetness. Some of the newer IPAs that I've had lately are beginning to go overboard with the blatant tropical hop flavors and aromas. For me, this is one of them.

T - Follows the nose. The flavor is good, but not particularly interesting to me. It tastes like hops. I like hops, but I need something more. Additional points came off this one because of the back-end bitterness. I found this sensation to be quite similar to Stumpy Duck, which I believe suffered too much from the same one-two punch. Big hop bouquet up front, detached bitterness on the back end.

M - Not really memorable. I wanted a bit more body.

O - Good, but not memorable for me. It's a beautiful beer to look at, but it certainly didn't leave me wanting another.
