Had this on tap at the Draught House. Pours a gorgeous reddish amber with a light beige head. Smell is big fruity, gummy hops with house flavor and scent. Taste is fruity, hoppy and fairly bitter but with a good maltiness behind it. Good flavor and body. Nice beer.

8oz pour at (where else?) the Draught House.

This little "home brewery" knows how to use some hops...4lb. of Centennial, Simcoe, Amarillo, and Chinook(?) went into this ~11%ABV IIPA. Pours like the style, with a reddish-copper hue topped by a receding cap of khaki foam. Typical hopped-up aroma, with lots of piny goodness backed by citrus notes and a hint of alcohol and caramel malts.

Flavor mirrors the aroma well, with a blast of resiny, hoppy goodness that gives way to a boozy warmth and a drying, semi-sweet amber malt finish. Palate is a bit spritzy for the thick body, which counteracts the inherent malty smoothness. Still, this is a very tasty IIPA and I had no problem getting through the half pint. Would definitely order again...
