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.
Serving type: on-tap

This beer is one beast of a brew. It's a quad IPA, so it damn well needs to be dripping with hops. I had very high hopes for this beer. Very high. As a hophead, I'm constantly looking for beers that push hops to the limit. Triple IPA are completely awesome enough, but a quad?? Jesus Lord Christ. I had no idea what to expect. It pours a very crisp and clear orange gold. Light head that quickly dissipates. Very beautiful beer. The smell is very hoppy, which is to be expected. The smell is the only quality of this beer that isn't absolutely 5/5. The smell was slightly too alcoholic for my liking. But with a 10%+ content, not much you can do in that department. The taste is absolutely spot on. The hop overload is awesomely balanced and the floral and citrus hops are used optimally. Overall, this beer is up there with the best beers I've had the pleasure of trying. Dare I say this is better than the legendary Pliny the Younger? Not sure about that but it is definite up in that category. Definitely revisiting once I can afford to drop $14 on a 22 oz bomber. But yes. If you find it and you are serious about your hops, this is a must.
