From BeerAdvocate Magazine #74 (Mar 2013):

An amped-up IPA for sure, bordering on the Double IPA style with the strength of alcohol, plus a near blistering hop bitterness. Brewed with Chinook, Motueka from New Zealand and Bravo hops, which all makes for an aggressive but unique, or at least different, hop character. Worth the hunt for all of the hopheads out there.

STYLE: American IPA
ABV: 7.5%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Clear bubbly amber, solid lacing

SMELL: Ruby red grapefruit, piney, mild tobacco, juicy, cake batter, Grape-Nuts, alcohol, lime leaves

TASTE: Very smooth, pungent, resin, tobacco, grapefruit rind, peppery alcohol, mango, bitterness, biscuity grain, dried grass, spicy, husky, lime pith, warming; hoppy, bitter finish

Poured into DFH IPA glass; translucent, light orange-yellow with a moderate white head that fades into a lovely ring of foam that leaves incredibly fine lacing rings.
Smell is dank herbal hops, some tropical fruit and citrus, hint of pine and bitterness.
Taste is bitter, piney and herbal. No fruity hops detected, despite the fruity nose. Hint of bitter citrus rind perhaps, but that's about it. Hops destroy any malt flavor as well. Finishes dry with lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel is minimal, smooth and dry.
Overall, not the kind of IPA I'm a fan of. It's all bitterness, not much actual flavor. Not bad if that's your kind of IPA though.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit of pine. Nothing mild about the taste. Aggressive hops, pine, resin, some citrus, bitter, a bit unbalanced. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.
