look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Burnished amber with a 1 finger ecru head which lasts for a spell leaving nice lacing.Definately effervescent.

Aroma is an equal blast of sweet malt and dank hops.

Taste is evenly balanced with the dank oily hops blended with a steep malt bill, with a touch of syrupy sweetness to it, certainly qualifies a big beer.A touch of booze is present,mostly in the throat. Moderate bitterness continually tempered by the malt sweetness.

Mouthfeel is slightly oily, a bit on the heavy medium side for the style,and slightly prickly carbonation.This one is a sipper, and the finish isn't even near dry.

Overall, those that appreciate big hops and equally big malt will appreciate this one. If a dry finish and tropical aroma/taste are important qualities to you, you might want to pass.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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.
