Its pretty darned bitter, but in an unbelievably drinkable way.
Slight alcohol kick, massive hop dryness, un-nerving more-ish-ness.
Reminds me of getting my red raw bitten nails painted with nasty stuff to stop me biting, and loving it.
Mmmm its a winner

22oz bomber into pint glass

Look is a fantastic unfiltered amber-orange with a sticky 1-finger head and swirling bubbles. Smell is luscious dank hops: pineapple, apple, grapefruit, lemon, and overwhelming, nostril-raping pine. Bready malt as well. Taste is baked bread, malt, giving way to a massive amount of hop flavor: pine, lemon, grapefruit, marijuana, earth, and the taste and feel of alcohol. Feel is bitter but never cloying. Light-medium feel loses points for giving me slight heartburn, a rarity for me.

Overall, this ale utilizing hop extracts is one of my favorites, the very definition of a hop bomb.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

A: Light amber, almost gold. Nice one finger head that went down to a ring around the glass pretty quickly, leaving good lacing.

S: AMAZING aroma. Floral, fruit juice. Sweeter than I thought. I was expecting a grapefruit bomb with the high west coast IBUs. Don't get me wrong, the grapefruit is definitely there...but it's nicely balanced by mango, passionfruit, and orange.

T: Flowers up front, sweet mango and sour grapefruit through the middle with a bold bitter finish that stays sticky on the back of the tongue. SO awesomely hoppy.

M: Medium-bodied, lightly carbonated, a little tacky.

No enjoy by date on the label.
Poured fairly aggresively into a standard pint glass.

A: Poured to about one finger of loose, foamy, medium beige head that disapated quickly to a single layer of suds. It also left some really good lacing. The brew is a bright golden straw color and fairly clear.

S: The aroma is fairly mild and consists of grapefruit and piney hops.

T: It begins with a strong hops bitterness with undertones of earthiness and some pine resin and just a touch of grapefruit. The malt backbone is only enough to take the edge off the bitterness.

M: It has a medium body and is very smooth; and, it has some good carboation, too.

O: The hops bitterness is the focus of this IPA. It has a strong hops bitterness, and the earthiness and the pineness and grapefruit do just enough to add an interesting element of complexity. Overall, this is a really good hops bitterness focused brew, and it is very much worth seeking out.

A - Nice deep gold color, very thin head.

S - Citrus, lemon, pine

T - Very grassy and lemony, yet a smooth finish.

M - Thin and bubbly. Very nice consistency and not viscous at all.

O - A very good DIPA that is quite underrated in my opinion - especially for its price. It's been a while since I've had this and I've forgotten how tasty it was.
