Pours a brilliant copper hue with a fluffy off-white head. Smell is citrus with hints of grassy lemon and grapefruit. Also expresses some extremely dank, cannabis character. Taste is identical to the aroma. Some have said alcohol was present, but I don't get it much at all. The hops and malt balance this beer beautifully, and alcohol is hardly detected. Mouthfeel is slick and resinous, but still very clean on the finish. This beer is highly drinkable even given it's ABV. One of the best examples of the style I have had in a long time! Seek this one out!

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.

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.

I had this on tap at Moylan’s Brewery. It poured a very nice orange color with a small off white head. Very pleasant aroma with lots of grapefruit and orange peel. Palate bruising hoppiness with a very dry finish. Overall it's a wonderful Imperial IPA.

A: Golden-orange with a nice quarter-inch head in a snifter. Decent retention. A little lacing.

S: Outstanding. Big citrus, hoppy smell. A little piney as well.

T: Grapefruit and more grapefruit, but some sweet just before the puckering bitter kicks in.

M: Bright, but full-bodied and somehow still very light and refreshing. Exceptional feel.

O: Moylan's nailed it.
