Big, bold in your face double IPA. Superb hop aroma ranging from piney/resiny to citrusy and tropical fruit. The hops are supported by a big, complex malt body that balances out the 100 IBUs extremely well.

Glad I tried this one. Has a nice solid, not too heavy, not too light mouthfeel. There is as some others have noted a significant malt presence that provides an excellent backdrop to the strong and very nice grapefruit, grapefruit peel, and bitter hoppiness. Beautiful long lasting three finger cream colored head and nice dark amber color to the beer. Will definitely be buying this again if and when available.

Look: Three fingers of off white creamy head dissipates pretty slowly leaving pretty lacing. Hazy copper in color and floaty sediment.

Smell: Oily orange citrus hops.

Taste: Pretty well balanced. Was expecting a bit more hoppy bitterness. Fruity malts and a slightly bitter finish. Masks the alcohol very well.

Feel: Kinda syrupy. Sticky sweet.

Overall: Pretty ok. Doesn't feel like a double neccisarily but is still a killer IPA. At $12 for a four pack, there are others I enjoy much more. Dirtwolf comes to mind. Certainly worth a shot but I don't know that I'll be returning.

Big, bitter, classic CCC hops flavor profile. This is a reasonably big beer (8%), but not a monster. However, those 100 IBUs really come through in the finish. Basically, a quality uber-hopped IPA, but not a lot to differentiate in terms of a unique profile.
