Good appearance. Dark amber with ruby hints. Nice head and lacing.

Very appealing mild citrus and stronger pine aroma. Totally correct for the style. Not a super strong aroma but quite good.

Taste is typical American IPA and similar to SN Torpedo to my taste buds. Good balance of sweet and bitter. Not huge citrus tatses but a bit of orange is there. Nice piney flavour, resinous feel and solid malt core make this a good drinking IPA. IBUs are noticeable and welcome!

Overall, a very solid offering and rendition of this renown style of beer. Perhaps nothing outstanding or remarkable for those who've tried a few of this style but definitely enjoyable. This would have a wow factor for anyone not used to big, hoppy US beers.

93/100

This is a fun, strong hop-rush. Tons of pine and citrus rind up front with a long resiny finish. The malt tastes very repressed -- not much sweetness or roastiness. Would buy again!

A - Hazy light amber with two fingers of dense frothy off white head, thick lacing.
S - Tons of pine, some light floral notes, very dank and resinous, some sweet orange juice in there, grapefruit, bread malt.
T - Massive bitterness, lots of pine and grapefruit, citrus bite, orange, malt doesnt really make an appearance as much as the onslaught of bitterness, but its good stuff.
M - Very mild feel outside of the bitterness, there's a little malty chewiness to it, but the alcohol doesnt make a large presence as well.
O - Good stuff, glad to have picked up a 6 of it.
