Poured from a tap at TJs in Paoli into a snifter glass.

A: A light to medium golden color with a one finger white dense head. Nice glass lacing that eventually disappears.

S: Loads of hops come dancing to your nose with citrus, pine and some herbal notes. Not much malt on the smell, it's all hops.

T: The hops really dominate this brew with citrus flavors of orange, tangerine and grapefruit. Some pine flavors follow the fruit with some herbal notes that seem to tie to the biscuit and grainy malt. No sweetness at all is detected from this hoppy beauty as the finish turns to bitterness and drying. No real alcohol taste either. Real nice beer.

M: Medium, coating, prickly, bitter and very little alcohol. Perfect carbonation.

O: A very, very good DIPA that deserves the hype as a total hop bomb. If you want a sweeter or maltier DIPA, this one is not for you. Hopheads rejoice, you'll love this one.

I've been wanting to try this for some time now, so I'm really glad I got to chance to. I was not disappointed either, great beer that I'd drink anytime.

Pours a clear deep golden color with a white foam. Aroma of grapefruit and green tea. In the taste, grapefruit hops, pine and pineapple also are present. Soothing herb, tropical fruit, pale malts. Medium bodied brew with medium to low carbonation. Overall this is a clean, east does west coast IPA.

Pours a hazy orange-ish to yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, mellow pine hops. In the taste, grapefruit rind hops and a lighter malt presence. A hop bite, with a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry grapefruity citrus rind hop like aftertaste. Mellow nose, but big hops in the flavor, I can dig it.

Served on tap at House of 1000 Beers, poured into a Piraat tulip.

Pours a pale yellow/gold, clear color with a thin white head. Little retention, but decent cling.

Smell is fairly complex. It's swee and hoppy while at the same time a organic/grain smelling. It's citric and grassy. There's even a bit of sweet flower aroma in there as well.

Taste is somewhat similar, with an emphasis on the citric hops. Less noticeable is te grass or vegetable and fruit aspect.

Mouthfeel is good, quite pulpy in aftertaste. It has a grapefruit rind character to it. Medium drinkability.

Overall, a very decent IPA. Glad I tried it. Cheers.
