The 'Eavy Seas line of beers from Clipper City are a great little stable of beers, and their best offerings for my palate. This'un here is the dandy little 'hopped3' IPA that sometimes likes to roam around under the guise of a DIPA. It be tasty, whatever genre one manages to shove it into. I think I will do this review in pirate-speak, to further the image of the 'Eavy Seas brand....here goes. This be a true bute of a brew matey, sloshin' into me goblet with a rich body the color of a evenin' horizon on the south pacific. Smells sumthin' potent, like top-notch grog blended with saville oranges and grapefruit instead of ye olde lime squeezins. I wunder if drives off the scurvy just as good? Thar be a punch of bitin' bitterness up front, then a sweeter peach or apricot flavor parlays with me tongue. Me thinks thar is papaya in thar as well. More prickly bitterness around the sides and finishes fierce before slidin' down the gullot. Not for the boys, let them stick with their sweet, English milds. But for men, this be a fine, fine ale. Cheers to thee, Hugh Sisson.

Had it and it was a bit over chilled. First sip is in your face Citra hops with an astringent aftertaste as one would expect with this much hops. Mouthfeel grew as I downed the hopped up elixir. Seemed a bit out of balance malt vs hops. A little more malt would balance this brew. Would order again.
