3.78/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a SA perfect pint glass, bottle not dated.
Pours a one finger head that has a yellowish tint to it, which is fairly interesting. Color is a burnt orange and is cloudy.
For such a strong tasting beer the aromas are difficult to pick up. Mostly what I get for a smell is a malty sweetness.
First off is a nice bitter hop, more piney and resinous than citrusy. Some malty notes in the finish but this seems to be all about the hops. The malts taste a little burnt, I like it.
This is a medium bodied IPA. The pungent hop flavor followed by the burnt malts leaves a strong lingering aftertaste. This will have to be my last beer of the night as I don't think I'd be ablet to taste any others.
Overall this is beer that hop lovers will enjoy. I do like the taste of this one but don't like how it has wrecked my palate for the rest of the evening. Worth a try for those who like strong hop flavors but wait till the end of your lineup to take down, it's potent.

4.26/5  rDev +15.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours copper with a creamy head that leaves some lacing.

The smell is of citric fruits - especially grapefruit - with herbal notes. Robust hop aroma.

The taste is of citric fruits and herbal notes, balanced by a touch of caramel. It has a bitter, dry finish. Hops linger through aftertaste.

It has a chewy, smooth body.

This is a hop delight! Just enough malt to give it a backbone, the hops truly shine here! A very well-made American IPA!

3.84/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

The paler side of orange, this beer is translucent but not transparent, with some chill haze and maybe even some particulate hop matter floating around. There is a soft, billowy, white cloud of foam that recedes, lacing the glass and ringing the beer surface,

American hops, all the way, in the nose. Pine and Citrus.

Taste: If you like chinook, this is going to register as a good balanced beer. If you find chinook a bit strong, maybe even obnoxious, this beer will not change your opinion.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Pours medium bronze with a thick head of white foam. Grassy pine nose. Oily. Lacing everywhere. Light bready malt flavor that builds into a peppery hop. Smooth bitter throughout. Good IPA, very drinkable.
