I liked this quite a bit but for the price it doesn't compare to other IPAs in the price range. It really is good just seems like a lot of effort to come up with a good not great IPA.

22oz bottle served in a large snifter. I don't see a date. Given to me by @mr-jj.

Pours a clear reddihs amber, moderaely dark, with a very small head, and a very small amount of carbonation. Smell is barleywine, malt and alcohol -- a little cherry or apricot. Some fruity aroma.

Taste is powerfully bitter -- wow! Like chewing on hops (which I've done)! Hard to get much else in the flavor -- but there's some honeysuckle, it's not lacking in sweetness, there's just so much bitter.

Mouthfeel is smooth, dry, but super sticky. Overall, it's a good beer, but you better be in love with hops.

As I've grown to be more of a hop head over the years, attempting to see what the populist craze was really about, this beer has become more decadent to me. Although, still to this day, the obsession of overly hopped brews still gets on my nerves.

Most recently had on draft 2/15/16, this pours an orange-ish copper with a moderate white foamy head, aromas of dank hops with orange and grapefruit aggressively assault the senses.

Taste, too, is pungent as all hell, potent and boozy as well. It's cat piss supreme and dank ass rug--a truly old school, clobbering experience.

L: Brilliant, deep amber, 1-2” frothy foam cap
S: resiny, minty hops
T: Starts rich and malty and then intense hops come on board leading to an alcoholic finish that suggests whiskey. There is some caramel supporting the hops and alcohol and there is also some vanilla. Some citrus in the hops, especially citrus rind and layers of malt.
F: Creamy, medium full body and medium low carbonation.
O: Very intense but very well done.
