This beer comes in at 149 IBU's, not for novice craft beer drinker.

The pour gave me a 1 finger head, with a reddish orange color for the beer.

The smell is intense, mango, pineapple, almost an oniony type of smell but in a good way, apricot, and much more

The Taste is quite awesome, you get pineapple, mango. This beer is so hoppy that it basically numb your tongue. But if you're a hop head you will appreciate the numbing.

This is a great beer, and if you can get it, reach out an try it. Some good stuff

Fantastic DIPA! Fruity on the nose; nice and hoppy without actually wrecking your palate.
