4.7/5  rDev +22.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pours a very hazy orange, clearly unfiltered, half finger of white head with spotty lacing

Smell is orange, tangerine, grapefruit, grassy hop, pine and spruce, a herbal tea like character, no malt to speak of

Taste is great, heavy pine, grapefruit, huge pop of bitterness in the front and middle, sweet caramel malt underneath, orange rind, a definite white wine character I assume from the Nelson hops they are using in this, lemon, finishes with a sharp bitterness

Mouthfeel is medium with heavy fine carbonation, very dry on the finish

Well I was not expecting this beer to be this great, I am in love with this bitter hop bomb...

Great flavor, huge bitterness, nice dryness and a nice sweet backing to keep the hops in check! The best IPA I have had in some time.

4.06/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pleasantly surprised. Nice hazy golden color. Aroma is nice, certainly hop forward but a touch of malty sweetness. Flavor is similar, hops are in your face but balanced well with a malty fullness on the palate. Bought as a single but worth a purchase of a six-pack.
