Well im trying not to be bias here. This IIPA is Great. It's got a bite! Not too juicy but has the forward hop bite short of bitterness ( to me this is a modern balanced IIPA hopwise) and it's something I want to brew/clone. Other reviews on here are spot on. My bias could still creep up. My local has it on tap seemingly permanently. And at happy hour it's $3 for a full pint!!!

Look cloudy honey color with good head and lacing. A fair amount of head sticks around the entire time
Smell malty piney a hint of citrus
Taste. The malts/sweetness balance out the high alcohol content and strong hops Lingering hop taste
Feel. Good mouthfeel across top of tongue and back of tongue late

Overall this is a beer on the more expensive side but very good. When comparing to other high alcohol beers -the price isn't so bad and this beer is very drinkable I would definitely buy this again if I just want a beer or two to go with my steak.

To me this is s very nice India pale ale. I have seen mixed reviews on it but I love it. It’s a little on the expensive side but quite good.
Loook : dark Amber color ,about 1 finger of head with lacing
Smell: Resin , dank, Hops and Bitterness, mild Citrus notes
Taste: The taste is nice and dank with some floral and citrus notes with a very nice bitter finish. If you don’t like bitter don’t buy it. I love the bitter it makes it great
Feel: Not to carbonated , very easy drinking at 9.2% ABV.
Overall: this beer for me was outstanding , not the best I’ve ever had, but it’s up there , would Definetely buy again.

Fresh from a bottle into a proper beer glass. Dark amber with good carbonation and a fairly nice head and lacing. A bit hoppier than a lot of IPAs but overall a very good beer. Definitely worth buying again.

I have hesitated to sample this beer via my ordinary pub crawl trail as it's embolden 8.2% abv typically precludes me from sampling more than one. I could, but my hallucinogenic response would be less than useful. I love this beer. I tend to trend toward more citrusy taste (3F's Zombie Dust, SunKing's Grapefruit Jungle - I'm from Indy, support your local breweries!) and this one rang my bell on Christmas day. Thank my savior the local CVS carried it, the only pub open on Christmas. Anyhoo, if you like sweet IPAs with a bit of a bite with an overtaste that hangs around a bit, this is your beer. I will be back for one or two...or three. And an Uber.

Golden in color, thin head that dissipates, has a citracy smell, and it tastes very smooth. One of my favorite IPAs.
