3.25/5 rDev -15.4%
Appearance: Pours a cloudy apricot color with several inches of foam; decent lacing
Smell: Hop forward aroma, with an catty character redolent of hemp and pine
Taste: A bit of sweet malt, up front, and then we are off to the races, with a really bitter, vegetal combination of hemp and pine, that moves into the cat pee direction by mid-palate; the cat pee really dominates the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation
Overall: Truly a hoppy West Coast style DIPA, but I am afraid that I just can't cozy up to the hop profile on this one; I prefer more citrus to my IPAs
Thanks, PretzelCity, for the opportunity

Poured chilled in standard ale glass @davewhite4.
A: decent head; dark copper color; low carbonation; ok lacing
S: earthy hop aroma; pancake and syrup smell
T: intense; very malty; overly sweet and very boozy; not my ideal IPA, but I can see how this would appeal to some people's ideals.
Good solid beer; glad that Rodman's had them stocked, and on sale.

Pours Slightly hazy orangish hue with a fizzy white head. Not alot of lacing left on the glass.
Smell is very resiny and slightly herbal with some nice pine notes. Citrus rind in the background.
This has a sweet malty backbone that fades into a dry crisp bitterness. Not over aggressive but it does have a nice bite and there is some slight alcohol heat in there as well. Pine and grass are the standout flavors.
Mouthfeel is a little thin and there's not a lot of carbonation here. I find myself wanting a little more bubbles. A refreshing beer that leaves a nice aftertaste.

A- looks great. Just how you want an ipa to be. I can tell this is going to be good carbonation just by the way it pours. Constant bubble.
S- it's def smells good to my taste. Lemon, grapefruit with some bread and malt. But nothing super impressive, and after reading the label I guess I expected more an I got. That is the only complaint tho
T- good powerful taste. Lemon pine and grapefruit coming in strong like it should. The biscuity malt taste comes in and adds a great profile to this beer. Nothing lingering that you don't like. And some people talk about it being too bitter. I think it's balanced great, strong but makes you want to come back and sip some more.
M - lots of bubbles and stayes nice and perked up the entire time I sipped on the pint
