From BeerAdvocate Magazine #76 (May 2013):

A good IPA, boasts 103.1 IBUs ... pretty insane and tongue scraping from sip to sip. A true hophead’s brew that perhaps is looking for a bit of pain as it slowly tries to wreck the palate.

STYLE: American IPA
ABV: 6.2%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Brassy hue, sudsy topping

SMELL: Citrus zest, minty, slightly dank, mild tobacco, earthy, stone fruit

TASTE: Very smooth, creamy, very aggressive hoppiness, solid bitterness, leafy, pipe tobacco, grassy

A: slight cloudy light amber hue, determined by a light-mid lovibond crystal and pilsner malts. With a hard pour, there's a thin lacy head that lingers but threatens to break until the end.

S: delightful expected aroma of a grapefruit tree and flowers amidst christmas trees. Smell works with taste.

T: taste similar to my impression of aroma. slight abrasive bitterness up front, which Im not crazy about, but gives way to a pleasant sweet floral flavor.

M: a bit oily, but smooth and not too heavy. Easy to drink.

O: another PA beer I'm quite happy with. I'm new here so I'm not sure if others have said this but this makes an excellent substitution for SN celebration ale. I would buy more of this.

A good beer across the board.
A nice contrast between the amber hued beer and beige cap.
Aroma of tropical fruits abounds. Plenty of grapefruit notes.
Assertive hops and a rich malty taste are well balanced.
Finishes clean and ends bitter.
A good well balanced beer.

A: [4.75] Nice golden apricot color. The beer has a small white head that is under a 1/4 finger in size. The bottle lists the ABV (7.1%) and the IBU (103.1). There is also a best by date 4/23/15. ALSO, it lists all of the malts and hops used. Malts = Pils, Caramalt, Crystal, Malanoidin. Hops = Chinook, cascade and centennial. I have to admit I am really impressed with all of the info given by Full Pint. Bonus points on appearance!

S: [3.50] The initial smell was tropical fruits like mango and pineapple. After agitating the beer the notes changed - I swear I am getting a vegetable like scent.

T: [4.25] Assertive hops without being out of balance. There is a storng malt backbone to balance this beer. Just as the bitter starts to register the sweetness flows in. Overall this gives a sweet bready finish with some citrus hoppiness in the front.

M: [3.75] Low carbonation feel and decent weight to the beer. Very mild bitter in the aftertaste (not bad just a component)

O: [4.00] I am surprised and impressed. I will definitely seek out more beers from Full Pint. This one is a winner. This is a high IBU beer that strikes a nice balance instead of punching you in the face with bitter.

Happy to try this great PA IPA from Full Point, my first entry from them. Nice aggressive hop flavor, and well balanced. Nicely done!

Just opened one of these.
Drinking straight from the bottle.
ABV says 7.1%

Smell is very pungent, the chinook hops are very extreme and citrusy.

First sip is extremely overwhelming.
The bitterness might be too much on this one.

As the bottle warmed up, the floral aroma grew on me.

By the last sip this beer was much more pleasant.

If you like a really hoppy beer, this one will surprise you.

Very bitter, but worth it.
