A great IPA. Very solid pick but nothing unique.

Slightly hazed golden amber color, with plenty of foam in the Stella Artois goblet. Really interesting aroma of passion fruit mixed with the smell of a grapefruit being peeled. Hot and oily mouthfeel. I can feel it on my lips.

Grapefruit aromatics (it's hard to improve on the Bros. concise review of this). Quite dry finish and hot with alcohol; it reminds me of a very dry sherry on the tongue. This is different from the southern California tropical fruit bomb DIPAs. But it's just as sippable. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Chuck's 85th St. Market in Seattle for $7.59.

Look: Good looking.
Smell: Smelly. Hops and pine are apparent. This has a great aroma.
Taste: The taste is a good combination of hops, bitterness, and pine, with a nice touch of sweetness. Tropical fruit stands up as the beer warms.
Feel: No complaints. Good to go.

Overall - I'm impressed. Truer to style than not.

Almost a hybrid American Barleywine and Double IPA. Quite viscous, and almost syrupy. Some residual sweetness, but well supported my monster hop bitterness. Nice sinuous, resiny American hop flavor and aroma profile.
