This beer pours a pale gold with a large head. The aroma has a huge citrus presence, big grapefruit and tangerine oils, as well as bright pine and a whiff of alcohol. The flavor begins with a huge bit of bitterness, with flavors or grapefruit, tangerine, pine, and just a touch of malt sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, lighter than one might expect for the style, which I love. Overall this is a huge beast of a beer, bold, full of citrus, and yet somewhat dry, just touches of stickiness.

Woah, this feels like a glass of hop oil. It is pungent, overripe tropical fruit, oily resin. It isn't my favorite hop profile I've had but it is super enjoyable. If you dig deep pungent hoppiness with some very ripe peaches and passion fruit, then this is your jam. Mouthfeel continues the feeling of hop oil with lower carbonation and an oily bitterness left on the tounge. I prefer the profile of their regular pIPA (one of my favorite all time) but this is extremely well executed!

What a great surprise this beer is!

Poured into a pint glass at Fresh Craft Denver.

Look - crystal clear light copper champagne bubles and a nice lingering white head.
Smell - Fresh Floral, Grapefruit, savory malt, Honey? Herbs? Not sure but something unexpected and great.
Taste - Bitter not sweet citrus, Tropical fruit, Floral, more malty herbalness. A bitter dry finish. Almost like there is a touch of Rye in the Grist.
Feel - Perfect. Clingy, hangs on until you process past the fruit and get the real base character of the beer.
Overall - Read my other reviews. i hate IPA's. They really can be an excuse for self indulgent over bitter or pineapply schlocky brewing.....so why do I love this beer so much. Balance. Complexity. Lots I can't place but lots that makes me want to keep trying! Excellent!

Great hop smell bursting from the glass. High ABV, tropical, but doesn't quite wash down with a smooth flavor
