Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and a big two finger off white head that slowly settles into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A very juicy and dank hop driven aroma with a scent of citrus and pine resin. Citrus hop scent of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, melon, lemon, and tangerine along with pineapple. Earthy hop scent of pine resin, grass, and cannabis. Malt hints of caramel, grains, and cracker. A really good juicy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a very juicy and dank hop driven taste with big notes of citrus fruit and pine. Juicy citrus hop notes of orange peel, mango, grapefruit, tangerine, melon, and lemon along with pineapple. Earthy hop notes of pine resin and grass. Background malt notes of caramel, cracker, and grains. A very good juicy taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy and oily with a drying finish.

Overall: A really great Imperial IPA. Huge juicy and piney hop flavor with balanced bitterness.

Bomber bottle poured into snifter.

Super hazy, orange straw, near opaque. Think off white head that settles into collar around the glass leaving lots of sticky lacing.

Aroma is citrus zest, grapefruit juice, earthy resins, tropical fruit and a hint of something vegetal.

Bright citrus flavor with deep resinous earthy pine. Over-ripe tropical fruits and grassy plants. Hint of sweetness and back end bitterness balances everything out.

Moderate carbonation and medium body, smooth, bitter finish.

Big aroma and flavor, blend of hop characteristics, hazy as can be.

Pours a hazy yellow/orange color with a thing soapy white head on top. The lacing is good. The smell of beer is pretty damn nice. Loaded with dank citrus. The taste is great too the flavors of citrus and pungent resin. The feel is medium bodied, creamy and smooth. Overall it's outstanding.
