On draft at the brewery: pours a clear yellow golden color with white head. Citrus, pine, grass, hay, and some floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a combination of pine and floral notes.

Pours dark gold with a large white head on top. Can smell nothing but hops in this beer. Has a super hop taste with a fruity finish. Goes down very easy.

Reviewed from long-standing notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Moderately hazy bright gold, with a two finger white head that lingers for awhile. A good amount of visible carbonation.

S: A big punch of melon, tropical fruity and grassy hops. Some pineapple and mango, with a touch of floral and citrus as well. Cracker malts stay in the background.

T: Follows the nose - melon, tropical fruit and some spicy hops. The light cracker malts provide a baseline, but not much else. Some bitter resinous flavors show up with lingering melon near the swallow and last into the hang.

M: Somewhat light body for style, and good carbonation sensation. The listed 10% ABV is well-hidden for sure.

O: I thought this was really, really good. For my personal preference, I wish they would tweak the hop profile - heavier on the tropical fruit notes rather than the melon. Regardless though, this was really well put-together.

Pour is a dark Amber, dark golden, and slightly opaque. Not much of a head for an IPA comes as a surprise, barely half finger white ring. Moderate lacing.

From the smell alone you can tell it's a hop bomb. I'm getting a lot of hop resin, citrus, sweet bready malt. Some very very slight mango and melon going on. A grassy, earthy smell with some pine too.

Taste very pine foward, and hop resin finish. Pretty bitter, but no alcohol bite. Very straight foward with the taste. Big, hoppy, bitter.

Mouthfeel is pretty thick and hop resin definitely lingers.

Big straight foward beer. Definitely a hop heads beer. Damn near a barleywine with the thick mouthfeel. Not the be taken lightly and I'm not disappointed.
