A: Hop hazed amber with a huge sticky white head that lasts and lasts. This beer has an almost greenish glow to it, a sign of excessive hopping?

S: Tangerine, grapefruit, rich resiny pine. Malt? No. Pungent as hell, I couldn't keep my nose out of the glass. One of the most aromatic IPAs out there.

T/M: A C-hop monster. Grapefruity, floral hops open this one up, leading to oranges, tangerines. Sticky, resiny bitterness soon takes over, but the bitterness is in perfect harmony with the juicy hop flavor. No real malt presence to comment on, the hops overwhelm everything. Light to medium in body, crisp, dry. Incredible stuff.
