This stands as my all time favorite beer. For my tastes, it is a perfect DIPA. The color, oh man the color. As most HF hops, this has an amazing hazy body that is so bright. Nice fluffy head that lasts and lasts. The smell on this beer is out of this world! First sip is an explosion of citrus, orange peel, grapefruit. Nice hop character follows through and just keeps you coming back for more. The body mirrors its appearance and it has a great mouthfeel. I had massive expectations for this beer when I made the trip and it surpassed them. Truly an exceptional beer and a must try bucket list type of beer for everyone. Incredible!

Hate to give perfect scores, but it is the perfect beer-- smooth, creamy, tropical fruits, citrus, I swear I get cherry, hoppy goodness, just the right amount of bitterness, perfectly balanced....
Even my wife said "yummy"! Equal in my book to Abner....
Trade your right leg or family dog for a growler...
