I've heard hype about this beer and in short it is justified. Served from a 22oz bomber into a snifter.

A - Appearance is a nice orange hue and a head of about 1 finger. So thick you cannot see through the other side of the glass.

S - Fresh citrus, pine, orange notes explode as a IIPA typically does.

T - Great taste that mirrored the smell. Very smooth with no harsh bitterness that I've experienced with some other IIPA's.

M - Moderate mouthfeel, not as thick as a stout, but not as light as a pilsner. Very refreshing for a high ABV beer.

O - This beer lived up to the hype/recommendations. A great IIPA that I will go back to in a heart beat. My only wish is to get it fresh from the source for comparison.

This is will say is one of my favorite IIPA's! Huge notes of pine resin and mouthwatering hops that seem to stick around the nose forever. This pours a nice and deep orange color that is a bit deep for my personal taste. As soon as the smell hits you, you know you have found the right beer. Taste is of pine, apple, pineapple, light wheat,warm spice. This is one of my top IIPA's. Highly recommended.
