4.08/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured into a snifter

A-Copper colored opaque, thick white foamy head that leaves thick lacing that clings to side of glass. Not much head retention but lacing is long lasting.

S-Citrus hop bomb...grapefruit and mango, notes of pine, grassy, a bit bready with some malty sweetness

T-Follows the nose...nice balance between the citrus and pine of the hops and the sweetness of the malts...followed by a dry bitter finish

M-medium to full bodied, creamy, a bit dry on the back end

O-Nice IPA well balanced, creamy bodied, good hops presence but not over powering ...quite drinkable as the alcohol is fairly well hidden maybe a bit too bitter and dry on the finish but worth visiting again

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Very hazy yellowish brown with a large white head and patchy lacing.

Dank, musty citrus and pine are prevalent in nose. There is a somewhat off-putting character that reminds me of sauteed cabbage and onions. Decent malt balance.

Big pine flavors, some more odd herbal notes, bitterness through the roof, way off balance. Like tea that steeped for way too long. Extremely bitter and dry. Very hard to finish.

Medium bodied, soft, firm due to bottle conditioning.

Yikes. Was looking forward to this but this beer falls short in a number of ways.

750 ml bottle of hops released this year let's see how it held up, looks great deep copper amber with a big head flowing forth light beige thicket of head forms nicely. Aroma has pine, citric notes with orange zest it's a great grassy floral quality of big hop layers in the nose, I'm liking it!!! Flavor is bitter with citrus zest and crushed aspirin, goes down exquisitely nice big beer with big hops and ample malts to balance out the show. Mouthfeel is big oily and accentuates all hop flavors fully I'm in love with this beer, it's a big hoppy badass beer that we need more of, the unfiltered aspect just adds to hop chunks floating in your glass who doesn't love that? Crushing waves of bitterness I'm not embarrassed to enjoy this onslaught of hops it's seems so fresh because of the big unfiltered raw hops in a 7.5% IPA I'm looking for more of this stuff and I know where to find it at retail get ready for a resinous hop mouthfeel with ample natural smooth carbonation all day. Great overall experience there's nothing like this on the market go and try some if you catch it soon, I hope they re release this stuff this coming summer!!!

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/10/2013. Pours very hazy deep orange copper color with a 2 finger dense cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, orange zest, peach, lemon zest, floral, grass, caramel, light pine, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, caramel, and floral earthiness. Moderate pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, floral, grass, pine, caramel, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a crisp and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around good complexity of hop flavors with a moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
