Look - Clear, golden color with a one finger foam head. Fairly light carbonation

Smell - Sweet, hoppy scent. Not as strong in the hops as I would have expected, but very inviting.

Taste - Strong hops..kinda hits you in the face. Pineapple, grass, resinous hops. Great combination of flavors that don't overstay their welcome on the back end.

Feel - Much more syrupy than i would have expected. Tingly sensation from the high IBUs - one of the most long lasting hops sensations I've had from a beer.

Overall - great beer if you can handle the extreme hop profile.

On draft at trio in kill devil hills nc

Appearance- clear bright IPA, light head nice lacing

Aroma citrus but not overpowering a little dankness on back end.

Taste- I had this as part of A 4 IPA flight and this was my fav. Flavor follows the smell. Refreshing

Mouthfeel. A little light but generally appropriate for the style.,

Overall- a very good beer that I enjoyed having. Nothing mind blowing but solid example of the style

12oz bottle in an IPA glass.

Light yellow-gold color with a modest white cap. Mostly spot lacing with a nice film from the cap. Fast micro bubbles through a slight chill haze.

Smells of citrus and tropical fruits. A touch of alcohol soaked grain. Slightly rank and dank.

Juicyfruit gum and caramelized malts.

Juicy, chewy and resinous. Thick body with snappy carbonation. Slight hop bitterness and the pepper shows in the lingering finish.

Lots of flavor and just the right touch of bitterness. It doesn't beg me to drink another after finishing the first one, though.
