It was a pleasure to find this on tap at Sticks and Stones last week.Poured into a standard pint glass a burnt orange color with a half finger white head atop.The aromas were like a smack to the face...in a good way,grapefruit rind and a big dose of pine resin,there was no malt detected just in your face fresh juicy hops.Flavors were of sharp bitter grapefruit,almost like drinking spiked pink grapefruit juice,the pine is underneath the grapefruit flavors but are there,some sweet alcohol lightly creeps but is still pretty subdued for how big the beer is.This was a true in your face hop bomb,no big sweet sugary flavors just hop joy.It kicked ass.

Nice orange and amber appearance, very thin creation of white head on the top of the beer. Aroma was great, just like fresh hopsickle, plenty of waves of citrus fruit and hop vegetal qualities drown out the gigantic alcohol, malt, sugar presence necessary to achieve something approaching equilibrium.

Nice taste, thick, oily, sweet and hoppy with plenty of bitterness. Pineapple? I think so. A pretty good tropical fruit flavor when making such a massive beer, allows you to not have to have as heavy of a malt presence or sugary sweetness for counterbalance I thinks.

Hides the alcohol quite well, but you do feel the heat minutes later when you exhale like a mouthbreather. One of my more favorite offerings under the triple ipa tent.

On tap at Bottle Revolution

A - orangish amber with a thin, white head that has good retention

S - huge grapefruit aroma, some alcohol

T - herbal, piny, grapefruit, bitter, faint malt presence

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a really solid, over-the-top hopped beer. It really brings the punch for hop heads. It's definitely worth a try.

This Beer has it all! Incredible head, great smell and full of Hops and notes of citrus. I must say, it is almost as good as Palate Wrecker. It finishes very smooth. Not sure of the IBU's but ibwould guess around 130. It is also similar in flavor profile to Shipyard XXXX but with a higher IBU. I am having it on tap as I type at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Hollywood. Kinda ruining my tasting festival on Sunday as they will have it as a featured beer then. Oh well, it's a beer that should be enjoyed as a full pour.

Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows sweet clean syrupy malt, along with some pine and grapefruit. Very sweet smelling though.
Lots of sweet clean malt as a flavour at first, pretty. Sharp piny hops follow leading to an aggressive bitterness.
Body seems a little too thick.

On draft on 4/20, Waldo day.

Compared to Waldos by the bartender, had to try it. Served in a footed chalice glass, the beer was bright orange with a thin later of sticky white foam on the surface. Aroma was dry and piney. Flavor was similar. Not especially pungent or dank, it was dry and piney tasting also, a little oxidized. Medium bodied with a hint of alcohol present. Overall wasn't really worth trying, and probably wouldn't pick up a bottle of this if it was available, though it wasn't terrible.
