4.7/5  rDev +17.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

bottle. poured a clear amber with a thick foamy head that retained itself well. smelled floral, spicy and grassy. alcohol and black pepper were detected. the taste: wow! lot's of things going on: black pepper & grapefruit... grassy, bitter and a little metallic. i don't have any notes on the maltiness except that it was sticky. oh yeah, and it was STRONG. very nice alcohol warmth. it's often pretty expensive... $6.99 or more per bottle... but it's absolutely worth it for hop lovers. A true hoppy hero! (506 characters)

A: Very transparent golden, orange, and honey in color. HUGE pure white wispy head that lasted about 3-4 minutes. Foamy, foamy, foamy...nice.

S: Holy friggen hops. Lots of citrus. Some honey and a little vanilla. Grapefruit, orange and lemon rind. Slight lemon as well. Very complex.

T: Super hoppy! Pretty bitter in a "I'm supposed to be bitter" way. Lots of citrus and some pine. After taste is citrus rinds. Some vanilla too. Really tastey and uniquely bitter.

M: Great carbonation. Very clean and thin. Goes down very well. This would make a great spring evening drink.

D: I can drink this all day. HOP HEAD HEAVEN!!! (625 characters)

Amazing balance to the palate. Perfect hops balance with slight maltieness and minimal sweetness. Ranks in my top 5 IPA bombers and will take #1 in my label/name category. Could make a trip to Reading, PA for this brewery. Amazing flavors develop as temperature warms on the traditional pint glass. (298 characters)

22 oz bottle in pint glass

the color is a golden shade of light amber with about two fingers of foamy head. lots of bubble rising to the top. looks thick and heavy.

it has a pleasant ale smell, with a slight smell of green apples. the hops didn't come out as much as i expected.

it has a medium body with a very creamy texture. the hops are definitely in the front of the taste but they fade very nicely into the creamyness of it. the alcohol leaves a slight warness in the throat a bit after swallowing. this beer is very nicely balanced and incredibly drinkable for the style. it seems to get better with every sip. (621 characters)
