look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a dark burnt orange under a fat finger of creamy head and webs of lacing.

S - Huge blast of citrus and pine hoppiness. Apricot, pineapple, orange, pine needle. Just what I'm after in a IIPA.

T - Extreme hop forward. Bitter orange peel, apricot, grapefruit. The malt backing arrives late with a complimentary bread flavour. Some heat but the 9% abv is exceptionally well hidden.

M - Glorious full body, chewy, oily, tangy and superbly bitter. Moderate carbonation.

O - I love it. As good as any IIPA I've encountered. Just brilliant.

poured out of 12 oz bottle into tulip glass, served cold and let it warm a bit

a: pours a very hazy dark orange with a one finger tan head

s: bitter, piney simcoe hops, strong malt, slight rust smell, a little bit of skunkiness too. maybe i got a bad/old bottle.

t: the bitterness overpowers the malt and alcohol dominates the finish. way overloaded with hops and not in a good way.

m: medium body, heavily carbonated, slight alcohol burn on the way down

o: was excited to try it but found it to be a let down, perhaps because it may have been an older bottle. i'll have to look for it when it's fresh.

Dark red-amber hazy beer with a sticky off-white head. Lacing is off-the-hook. 4.0

Dank Simcoe hops with loads of pine, floral, and marijuana notes. Sappy and stanky with a toffee malt backing. Very nice. 4.5

Resinous and bitter. Hot with booze. Toasted grains, pine sap, pot, jasmine tea, tropical fruits, edible flowers, and grapefruit. A hop tea. 4.0

Thick for the style with low carbonation. Oily and sticky on the lips. So many proteins and a few leftover sugars. 3.5

One of my faves. Love it or hate it, this beer is revved-up for all you hopheads. A gateway drug. 4.5

This is the beer that crossed me over into the craft beer world so I may score it a bit high.

A-deep copper/orange color with a 1 fingr white head.

S-like smelling a freshly picked grapefruit.

T-very strong citrus burst at the beginning that turns into a piney hopness monster. Very good. Does not taste like the 9% beast it is.

M-very smooth and silky. goes down like the best of them.
