Never even heard of this beer or brewery until last week when I started looking at the 24 0zs my fav craft beer store seS and my girlfriend made me buy this because she liked the bottle despite me not liking IPAs. Looks and smells great. Very hoppy taste with out that bitter IPA aftertaste. Excellent in your face beer.

Fresh 22oz. bomber bottle received as trade extra poured into a snifter tasting glass.

A= Amber, appears quite clear. Nice thick head that is just barely tan/off-white. Head settles into nice ring around the glass and lacing clings to the glass.

S= Citrus and dank resinous hops, some malty caramel.

T= Very tasty, lots of citrus and some tropical fruits. Melon and grapefruit seem most obvious, with mango as well. Get an herbal flavor as well. Some malt sweetness in the form of caramel.

M=Medium body and moderate carbonation.

O= Very good, Gets good reviews, but still was pleasantly surprised. Shared with another IPA lover and they agreed that it was great and deserving of high regards.

Pours into an imperial nonic a menacing looking hazed burnt orange with a half finger clingy white head that settles into a soaply-like mass.Sweet citrusy hops in the nose,not much bitternes detected,a touch of caramel/dough as well.Sweetness from the hops along with sugary notes makes it sweet up front but with a bit of grapefruit rind and pine to dry it up a little in the finish,as I drink more I get a light bread dough toast in the finish as well.It's a sticky hop bomb if just a tad drier this would be on par with the best,as is it's still very good.
