One of my top 10 all time favorite beers. Stumbled upon this gem on accident while in my hometown of Redding, CA.

I'm colorblind but it looks fine to me.

Smells less hoppy than it is, but defines an ideal IPA or DIPA everytime I smell it.

Taste: Perfection. Rivals heady topper, Pliny the younger, and 120 min. in my opinion. I'll take it over The Elder any day.

Mouthfeel is thicker than most, which I'm a huge fan of with IPA's.

Overall: Even if it weren't so accessible to me, I would still consider this one of the greatest beers that I have had the pleasure of trying. As close to perfection as anything I've tried (and that's a lot). I can't wait for it to be bottled this year (2014), and I'm excited to see more from this brewery... Possible TIPA?

Poured from a bomber into a standard pint.

A: Pours a very nice translucent copper color. ~1 finger width head, that fades fairly quickly. Leaves nice rings of lacing in the pint.

S: WOW! Loads of fruity deliciousness! Peach, mango, pineapple.

T: Definitely follows the nose. Absolutely delicious.

M: medium body, nice carbonation, dangerously drinkable for 10.2%. You would never know it. Nice bitter finish that lingers. Leaves you wanting more.

O: This beer is great! If you are ever in the Redding, CA area, stop in the tap room or pick up a bomber from one of the stores. Very surprised to find a beer of this caliber from such a small place.
