Pale gold, creamy white head of suds. Some nice lacing.

Really has a fresh/wet hop scent to it. Grassy with some honey/biscuit malt.

Holy sour cream and chive! This is the first time that I have actually gotten the mythical onion flavor out of a beer. I've heard of it before, but now am actually tasting it. It's different, but not off-putting. Grassy at first, them transitioning to onion with some tropical notes and a moderate bitterness. Light malt backbone.

Has a crisp and clean feel. Light-medium body.

The onion really is different, but it really isn't too bad here. This overall beer is a nice crisp easy drinking IPA. Has some fresh/wet hop components to it. An enjoyable IPA.

I poured it into my favorite glass and settled my nose on the rim for a good two minutes of inhalation; fresh summer fruit salad flooded my mind, too much melon (it's the one fruit I wish wasn't added to every damn fruit salad). It's like diced strawberries and grapefruit wedges got all mushy wading in the melon juice. A wisps of cotton candy wafting through... the State Fair.

On the tongue mostly grapefruit, tangerine and marshmallow, but I also get a well-hidden skunk; sun-stroked hoppiness. Lots of bitter kind of overwhelms me at first, but as I drink, and it warms, a truer essence appears.

This beer is the kid who, unruly & defiant, runs away from his folks at the fair. He cashes in all of his tickets on fruit-flavored jawbreakers, gums, deep-fried this & thats, cotton candy & unlimited ride on the Whizzer. Hours pass, faces warp and freedom turns into loneliness. With the help of some volunteers and his tail between his legs, he finds his worried parents who are relieved that he is safe. He buries his crying face into his mother's bare leg as the sun sets. All three walked back through the overfilled parking to their car when dad looks at mom, messes the little knuckle-head's hair and smiles.

Dense head with sticky lacing. Kinda a murky cider appearance.

Aromas of resinous pine, grapefruit rind and weed . No fruity esters or malt sweetness to speak of.

Taste is orangey bitter and earthy. Bitterness grows on the palate and backdrops light caramel malts. Finish is vegetal, bitter and dry. No juicy fruits, but plenty-o-weed.

Somewhat oily mouthfeel and light carbonation. I'd like to dry out the lacing, scrape it off the glass and see how it smokes.

I was expecting more from reading the reviews. This is a straight forward hoppy beer-no frills. Weediest IPA I've had. It is very smooth and palatable. No problem finishing the sixer. Bitter lovers-this ones for you to give a shot. I'm glad I did. It's not just a good time, but a Whoopin time.
