This is possibly the best single IPA I have had. Color is light orange due to light malting, but the aromas are exceptionally complex. Ballast Sculpin seems more restrained, Stone IPA less intense, but those are the two I would compare. The hops intensity of Wipeout seems higher than its 78 IBU rating, almost like a lightly malted double IPA such as Pliny the Elder.

This truly is one of my favorites...nice look with a gorgeous frothy iceberg head that sticks around till you last chug..nice hop bite up front with a blend of tropical fruits mid palate that blends very nice then more hop bitterness and maltiness on the back end...I have nothing negative to say about this beer it just works in every way..

A - Golden orange and cloudy. Some carbonation

S - Scent is obvious. Its like a blanketing hug of hops. Very fruity and citrusy. They need to make candles that smell like this. Or maybe a perfume. I could smell this all night, but my mouth is watering so a taste is in order!

T - A somewhat sharper hop taste. Sweet and juicy fruityness balances it but not in the way malty-ness does. Really great fruity, citrus hops.

M - Some dry feeling at the end of the sip, but still mouth watering. Not too much carbonation, but far from a smooth drink. Lighter mouth feel. No harsh alcohol.

D - This far exceeded my expectations. Really great beer and you can bet I'll be buying more of this. Super wonderful and highly recommended!
