Whoa momma! It packs a punch. Smells good but this b*tch will bite. You can really taste the alcohol and she's a bitter one!

Hazy, deep amber color with a large white head. The aroma is the best thing about this beer. Loaded with grapefruit and citrus hops. The flavor carries over the grapefruit but introduces quite a bit of heat from the alcohol. Very bitter in the finish. Boozy and resinous.

My brother in law bought a six pack of this and brought it to the hospital following the birth of my daughter. Two months later there are a couple of them still sitting in my fridge. That about sums up my feelings towards this beer.

One of the best IPAs I have had. Interesting flavor and a LOT of hops!

12oz bottle at Aviator's in DIA, just as the Broncos are sealing the deal.

This beer pours a hazy, medium copper amber hue, with three fingers of puffy, frothy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some thorough sudsy webbed lace around the glass as it displays some stubborn retention.

It smells of orchard fruit, grainy pale malt, earthy, mildly funky yeast, white pepper, and leafy, weedy hops. The taste is sharp Belgian yeast, gritty pale malt, a touch of biscuity caramel, a small isolated funkiness, earthy and piney hops, and a sneaky warming alcohol.

The carbonation exhibits a seemingly high number of volumes, in its solid like a brick wall frothiness, the body a decent medium weight, and actually fairly smooth. It finishes semi-sweet, and yeasty, the alcohol finding some sand in which to jam its head.

An enjoyable and well-made version of the style, the yeast and the hops not colliding, but rather working on their own, towards the common good, a pleasurable whole. Worth seeking out if you're into this sort of thing.
