Strong, hoppy aroma has a firm overtone of sour citrus, equal parts Mandarin orange and grapefruit. It pours a clear, dark coppery brown with a thick, fluffy, copper-tan head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor is - HOLY GUACAMOLE, ATTACK OF THE HOPS! The bottle (and name) claim 1000 IBUs, and damn, I believe it. This is one fiercely hoppy and ferociously bitter beer. It’s like drinking liquid hops with a side of grapefruit juice. This is definitely not for the faint of heart - or taste buds! Firm body has plenty of fizz, and finish is woody and very hop-bitter. Nevertheless, a whisper or two of fruity sweetness sneaks through. One fierce IPA that only the bravest should challenge.

Reviewed from session notes.

Poured out a clouded coppery brown color with a stunty off-white foamy head that lasts for a minute or two, minimal lacing left behind on the glass surface.

Smells and tastes the same : Psuedo-Barleywine. By which I mean a rich caramel / toffee sweetness that plays with an intense herbal / floral / grapefruit peel and pine resin spectrum with a side dish of medium levels of dankness and onion / garlic hotness. Boozey alcohol does rear up somewhat but only in the finish for me, and only once the glass has warmed up. This booziness seems to be what helps the hops hammer the finish down into dryness.

Heavier side of medium thickness, lightly carbonated, somewhat sluggish on the tongue.

It's pretty damn good, but I've had just as good for a more reasonable pricepoint. So, once is enough for me.
