Ok so I'm excited about this beer. Its color is vibrant and electric orange that's only a little carbonated ...very few bubbles in this brew. Almost no head with a heavy pour and there is no freshness on the bottle. The smell is thick musky hops. A huge amount of herbs and fruit juices hit the nose. The malt backbone is there because despite the dank hops, sweetness pervades.
Glug glug glug
A huge herbal bitter smack of hops to the tongue comes first, swirled with a sweetness that is all grapefruit. This beer is SO hoppy and sharp with the aftertaste consisting of a blazing bitterness that won't leave. The more sips I take, the more fruit flavor I taste (or perceive) out of the fog of hops. The sweetness is well balanced and slightly over ridden by the huge hop bitterness, but this is good. The mouth feel is filmy but thick and cloudy at the same time.

Sample at Max's on 7/23/14 (from notes)
A: Lacing and copper colored.
S: Hops, all day.
T: Bitter as hell. Along with pine, that is the taste. I don't usually get this even with some of the other big IPAs out there.
M: Smooth with light carbonation.
O: Unbalanced but hoppy and bitter as hell.
Serving type: on-tap
