look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Hazy dark amber pour into standard pint glass. 2-finger thick head with light retention. Great lace, as with most of their beers.

Very strong citrus nose. Dry malt underneath.

Total hop bomb. Lots of pine, leading to a resiny oily feel. Grows tarter with each sip. Bitter cream finish. Huge bitters in the end.

Extremely good IPA. I'll get this one again.

Poured a deep copper hue with a three finger foamy white head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured an oily piney hop.

The taste consisted of an upfront resinous herbal hop with notes of pine, grapefruit and pepper.

The mouthfeel was full for the style.

Overall a heavy duty hop bomb.
