With all the ipa’s out in today’s era, this one is gonna get lost in the mix. It’s clean, refreshing and packs a solid punch....but so does the hot chick from high schools best friend.
I feel like this beer is the type you grab because you want something new, drink it because you paid $7.99 for it, like it, fall asleep and then forget you drank it.

Poured from 22oz bottle into Snifter glass. No date.

L: Clear light amber, two fingers of off-white head have great retention.

S: Aroma is subdued, but I pick up very melon-like notes, clean refreshing and light.

T: Flavor is a a little different, very fruity, with light melon, and some good malt backbone.

F: Medium body, average carbonation, dry.

O: Solid DIPA.

Bottle from Winco. Deep, clear copper pour, small head, streaky lacing. Muted aroma, mostly hop. Taste picks up, all of the grains and hop varieties seeking attention. Malts by a nose, but enough hops to finish bitter. Seemingly straightforward, but kind of complex.

Beautiful color and a rich malt profile of 4 different malts are overshadowed by a powerful hop triad. Citrus, floral, and piney as it rolls across the tongue. No strong after flavors of the 9.5% ABV or over 100 IBUs. It's worth buying two on your first go.

22oz bomber from Craft Beer Kings. Dark amber color. Aroma is slightly hoppy, sweet. Flavor is thick malt, sweet, some bitterness, some hops. I honestly expected a little more but no way to tell how old this bottle was.

MIni-growler picked up last night at Pre-Funk Nampa.. Clear light orange.. Hops are in the pine spectrum.. background pithy grapefruit toward the finish.. Lightly sweet pale malt to just barely balance the huge hops... Surprisingly well done.. Stoked to be able to get this fresh in my hood soon. Very stoked.

Real thick, cream-colored, long lasting head, lots of lace, and a clear honey amber color. Aroma is caramel, toffee, fruit, hop - very nice. Flavor's like nose, slight sweet, carbonic tang in front, then the bitter which is long. Body is perfect. Very good drinking. Slight alcohol warmth at the very end.

Nice deep amber with a coppery tint to it, light khaki head that holds lace long after dissipation. Resinous, with some mild pine in the aroma and a sweet note in there, I imagine from the grain varieties. Tastes as advertised in the nose: resin, pine, with citrus finish that adds a little booze pop in the back. I do like a stickier IIPA, but this is still a tasty beer. 9ABV makes this a sipper.
