A - A beautiful IPA, clear golden orange body, big white head, fades to a ring and film across the top with copious lacing all the way down.

S - Pine is front. Hints of pith and citrus peel, oranges and passionfruit. A bit of bubble gum sweetness.

T - Strong open of grapefruit and pith, pine and peppermint, with a bit of biscuity malt in the middle, coming to a strong punch of bitterness in the close. Hints of aspirin stay in check when cooler, but blossom forth more powerfully as it warms, which is the primary knock on taste - so drink it cool.

M - Chewy and drying, with residual coating of the tongue in the close. The drying invites you to keep drinking, but this is one that you do not want to stack.

O - A huge beer that delivers a big hop taste without completely blowing out your palate. It is a close thing, with this beer walking right up to the edge of wreckage without stepping over.

Damn good beer. I had never heard of it so this was a pleasant surprise. Got a bottle at Jack Flats in Key West because the Two Hearted on draft was out. Pours clear and golden. Nice sized head with lacing all up and down. Great flavor and hop bitterness. Pretty clean in the finish. Great brew. Had the Two Hearted after this one, and the Head Hunter was way better.

Strong hop smell big citrus flavor. The taste is pretty dank yet nice and crisp. What a treat. Everyone should give this a try that loves a good IPA!

L: Clear Amberish tint.
S: Slightly fruty, strong smell of pine. Smells hoppy!
T: Dank but crisp. Has an earthy note to it. Smell really transfers to the taste
F: Medium bodied. Had a solid finger of head with a lighter pour into a Spiegelau glass
O: Really solid drinkable IPA. I'm curious what the IPU is, but it has to be around 90.

L: Classic bronze. Extremely clear. Negligible head poured from a bottle dated 12/29/15 into a wine glass.

S: nice tropical fruits and some malt.

T: beautiful! Grapefruit abounds, but also juicy Pineapple and mango, rounded out by a clean malt finish.

F: nice amount of carbonation jazzes it up, and has a creamy mouthfeel.

O: an extremely refreshing IPA. Alcohol presence is basically nil. Had to stop myself from quaffing this one.
