Poured from bottle into glass. Descent head with little carbonation. Hops are evident to the nose - expect to be punched in the face! Modest hops on front with a full punch on the back side! Full bodied yet well balanced. A very nice beer.

KNow I'm a big Simcoe and Citra fan. So was hoping for good beer. But wasn't ready for TIPA so fresh and fruity. Super flavorful citrus bomb. Huge beer that really hides the abv. Full bodied but not syrupy. Top notch IPA.

Poured from a bomber, dated May 4th 2016. Nice medium head of mixed-sized bubble head, fades to a coating within 90 seconds.
Brilliant gold color, shines in the sun that just came out from a storm while I'm writing this.
Smell is piney-dank, subtle, but not weak.
Taste is great, unless I am mistaken, the hops and malt hit in revers of other IPAs. Bitter in mid mouth, sweet at the end.
Overall a pretty good beer.
