Notes: No time and no space. Life beyond life. An experience transcendental, originating from within and projected through the third eye. Relax. Take a journey of the mind. Open up to the possibilities beyond your mortal coil. Follow the lines that lead to your inner twisted galaxy. Unravel it, question it, understand it.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange body. Nice white head. Chunky thick collar.

Smell - Doesn't smell the way I expected it to. It's very tropical, but has a must or mineral aroma too. Kinda detracts. Doesn't smell that sweet.

Taste - Much more dynamic. Orange, some piney hops, lots of tropical fruit. Grainy and a little bitter in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe pushing medium heavy. Creamy carbonation texture.

Overall - Wasn't enthused at first, but this really grew on me. Very tasty.

Taste: spiced juicy grapefruit hops, dry clean finish. Same with the nose. Gold hue, hazy, with a white head and some lace. medium body. For all the IBUs this not bitter which I like. 100 IBUs

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy bright orange color. This one is almost glowing in my glass. A very inviting look. Head retention is average.

Smell: Very dank and viney smelling. Very intense hop aroma. A pleasent malt character shines through nicely also.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Dank hops and bitter citrus notes dominant the palate. Some rich toasted caramel notes seep through as well. Mouthfeel is very good also. Very good bitterness level along with a medium bodied balanced mouthfeel.

Overall: A very well done IPA. Very glad to have the chance to try this one. Love to try these single hopped brews.
