Absolutely a world class beer. Great hop profile with a nice balance of pine and citrus. Medium body with excellent mouthfeel. Despite the name, it isnt an over the top hop bomb, it comes off more balanced and brilliantly executed... It is missing a certain element that the very best IIPAs have (Heady and Hop Zombie come to mind) that prevents this from being a 5. Nonetheless, a fantastic beer well worth seeking out.
