Had never heard of this beer or brewery before. Completely caught off guard by how amazing this beer was. One of the best IPA's I've had.

Great citrus hop flavor. Drinks smooth. No long-lingering aftertaste. A great IPA.

Look: A transparent burnt straw with a minimal white head.

Smell: Big juicy citrus delicately mingled with a earthy grass. Bright peach, lychee, tangerine, pine needles, and a touch of fresh cut grass. Malt is very faint in the back. Smells fantastic.

Taste: Deep fresh citrus waves over the tongue as a slightly bitter pine dances on the palate with more bright citrus brings in just of hint of malt with a touch on honey and lychee. Brilliant.

Mouthfeel: The citrus is deep and sticky on the tongue but the brew itself is crisp and clean. The hop body lingers on the finish.

Overall: An absolutely killer IPA. My favorite since Swamis and beats most by a long shot. So well crafted with the deep pungent citrus and the crisp clean body. A brilliant IPA with no room to hide any errors of which it has none to hide. Seriously hunt this beauty down

Pours clear golden in color with no head whatsoever. Smells very hoppy, as it should. A piney, resiny, punch-you-in-the-nose hop aroma.

Again in the taste I find piney, resiny, punch-you-in-the-mouth hops, only this time with lots of citrusy notes (grapefruit), and an herbal taste. Very nicely carbonated.

This beer is ALL HOPS, ALL THE TIME... and nothing more.

An explosion of citrusy goodness. Great balance, nice bitterness. A really good IPA.
