From BeerAdvocate Magazine #74 (Mar 2013):

An amped-up IPA for sure, bordering on the Double IPA style with the strength of alcohol, plus a near blistering hop bitterness. Brewed with Chinook, Motueka from New Zealand and Bravo hops, which all makes for an aggressive but unique, or at least different, hop character. Worth the hunt for all of the hopheads out there.

STYLE: American IPA
ABV: 7.5%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Clear bubbly amber, solid lacing

SMELL: Ruby red grapefruit, piney, mild tobacco, juicy, cake batter, Grape-Nuts, alcohol, lime leaves

TASTE: Very smooth, pungent, resin, tobacco, grapefruit rind, peppery alcohol, mango, bitterness, biscuity grain, dried grass, spicy, husky, lime pith, warming; hoppy, bitter finish

Had this on 2015-03-01 at BWI in the Rams Head Tavern.

Mild aroma. Some dank, pine, citrus and some caramel. Finish us moderately bitter. Just OK.

12 oz bottle, dated 9/23/14

a hazy orange tinged golden color. bright white head, decent lacing. the hoppy aroma is earthy, herbal, a bit of citrus. bready malt balanced the hop flavor in the taste. medium body and carbonation.
