Bottle from the Co-op. Orange copper pour with one finger fluffy head. Big bold hop aroma, taste continues with more hops, assaulting the palate with some real dank bitterness. Bitter finish slides down the throat with some heat. A big, chewy, meaty DIPA. Nice!

They did a very good job with the hoppiness. Great beer. The hops are very strong and the aroma is overwhelming. The taste is also very hoppy and smooth.

Pours a hazy reddish orange. Smells resiny, piney, orange and maybe grapefruity. The taste is a wonderfully bitter, yet balanced brew. The mouthfeel on this big beer is really selling it for me. The body and carb level are making a happy dance on my tongue! Really wish I had brought back more from my vacation, yum!

Straight up malt at BrĂ¼ in Philly. Maybe it's old.

ABSOLUTE HOP BOMB!!!!! Couldn't even comprehend some of the citrus notes before the bitterness destroyed my palate. Extremely piney. This is not a '100' rated beer, bros. But it is damn good. Oddly enough, some sweetness shined through (maybe residual resin, maybe (chocolate?)?
