an opaque orange pour with 2 fingers of white head which gave off great amounts of lacing. smells of citrusy grapefruit, mustard seed.. definitely taste simcoe-like hops in this. you get the pungent tangy cat pee-like flavor, sweet citrus, floral sweetness, with a nice malty backbone. medium body with a nice amount of carbonation, surprisingly refreshing.

a very nice treat... a little harsh to tackle after overdoing it late last night, but this will be my night cap i think. very sweet and citrusy, but nicely hopped.

Poured from a bomber into my trusty Sam glass.

A: Nice copper color with a head that builds slowly and dissipates slowly as well.

S: Wonderful piney, grassy hoppy goodness with a scent of alcohol in the background.

T: This is definitely a bitter one, but well balanced with a malty sweetness and backdrop of alcohol.

M: Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation.

O: The hops are well presented here and it is balanced well, no easy feat given the gravity. Overall, this is a big IPA that is dangerously drinkable.

22oz bottle, unknown date. Served at around 45F.

Pours copper/amber with a one finger off-white head that leaves nice drippy lacing and recedes to a small cap.

Aroma is earthy and floral hops with some citrus, apricot and pine, also good amount of caramel malt. Good to very good strength.

Flavor is resinous hops, some orange citrus, pine, floral hops, big caramel malt, mild to moderate balancing sweetness, very good bitterness on the finish, decent bit of alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, chewy, sticky, good carbonation.

Very hoppy and great bitterness...more caramel malt than I care for though, but still a good Double IPA.

Pours a deep golden orange, fairly clear. Little head.

Fruit and juicy, sweet and ripe. Faint caramel.

Very and sweet and juicy. Bitter hops in the back with a sweet fruity and juicy citrus blast. Malt is faint, hops are dominant.

Mild carbonation, wet and juicy body.

This is good and finished quick, no trace of alcohol.

A: Poured a cloudy orangish amber color with a large, lasting off-white head, leaving behind some pretty good lacing

S: Aroma is citrus/pine hops and caramel malt.

T : Fairly sweet caramel malt, earth, fruity notes, and loads of citrusy/piney/resiny hops. This beer also has a very prominent husky, grainy presence from start to finish.

M: Medium bodied, sticky, lots of IBUs, plenty of hop oils and flavor stick to the mouth

O: Very nice IIPA.
