I had this on draft at the brewery.

Appearance: hazy golden yellow orange color. Somewhat foggy with signs of carbonation and some lacing too.

Smell: citrus and grapefruit up front, some nice bready and biscuity. Bitterness lingers around for a little bit.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, medium carbonation, medium bodied, a little chewy, and easy to drink.

Overall: we came here last year and happy to have some of their beers once again this afternoon.

Served on tap at the brewery today.

Color is a hazy pale golden orange with creamy white head. Very nice lacing left behind.

The aroma has lots of fresh citrus and piney hop goodness to it.

Flavor is sweet and creamy with an almost buttery character to it. There's definately a lot of hops going on here but the flavors are sort of muttled together. Pretty well balanced for a DIPA with good levels of sweetness. Finishes with a grassy, earthy, spicy sort of taste.

Smooth, but edging on slick, mouthfeel. Very bitter and potent. As a hop head, I was drawn to it initially by the name but I'm glad I only ordered a sample. That was enough.

A real nice extra hoppy IPA. It could probably pass for a double IPA even in my opinion. Quite hoppy and good. I think any hop head could enjoy this.

A - Rich gold color. Big foamy frothy head that left behind real nice lacing.

S - full fresh hops. A lot of pine and citrus oil smell. Some sweet background.

T - Full bitterness range, not too bitter. Very nice citrusy and pine like hop aftertaste. Enough of some body behind it all to carry it through. Tastes strong, but I wasn't sure of the abv.

M - very smooth and a bit viscous. Nice level of carb.

D - Good. It's hoppy but not too hoppy. I had 2 pints.
