It has a dog on the can. Nough said. right behind a Road 2 Ruin or a Heddy topper but in a blind taste test, it would be very close.

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep amber color with a huge billowy head of just off white foam. The head holds on with quite some persistence, slowly fading to leave a nice level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of strong of a citrus grapefruit smell along with it having a little bit of an orange and tangerine smell as well. These aromas are by far the most potent, but are joined by some lighter smells of a floral and grassy nature as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a drier citrus and lightly bready flavor mixed with a little bit of a fruit taste of tangerine, orange, and pineapple. As the taste advances, the sweetness fades a bit, all while the bitterness gets even greater with more grapefruit and some floral and light earthy flavors coming to the tongue. Right at the end, a little bit of a grassy flavor comes to the tongue as well, leaving a rather bitter, but still smooth flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the style the mouthfeel is very nice, as it balances well the fruit and bitter hop flavors.

Overall – A rather tasty and crisper IPA with a good level of fruity citrus hop flavor as well as just enough other bitter hops to keep a big IPA flavor all throughout the taste.
