Orange pour, full inch of head, white. Hop aroma was there, but understated by current measures, nothing proprietary going on.

Jacked up bitterness approaching 100 ibu levels, but not distracting, has other flavors to go with the bitterness. Mostly vegetal leafy ness. Has a good amount of caramel and crystal malt, but the large amount of hops helps cut that.

Agree with the previous reviewer, this is the only hoppy offering they have that is worthy of mention.

Dull orange pour, average 1" head, pretty decent looking ipa. Good hop aroma, not massive, but solid, there's dry hopping, there's the c hops. Wasn't just bitterness.

OK, the taste, plenty of bitterness (85 ibu) but there was still plenty of hop oil and resin in the mouthfeel that didn't let simple bitterness just push it around. Toasty biscuit malt flavors, caramel n crystal I'd imagine. 12 hop additions over the course of a 90 minute boil.

Nice hop mouthfeel, this one is a keeper. Its about the only beer other than their sour selections I would recommend. Put 'er in a bottle I says.
