Pours a golden yellow color with a thick white head. Aroma is heaven. Floral and citrus hops. The taste is just amazing. This is what every IPA should strive to taste like. I don’t know what hops they used in this but I would guess Amarillo. The taste is smooth and hoppy. The malt backbone is perfect, not to sweet, not too light, just perfect. Grapefruit, orange rind, honey. So good.

A long time want for me. The pour is yellowy orange with a white foam like head that leaves quite the lacing. The aroma is heavenly. Huge piney hop aroma. I would love a side by side with Enjoy By and PtE. I think the alcohol is a bit more noticeable in the taste than both of those. This is still smooth and delicious. Such a good beer before Independence Day. Also #50 IIPA!

On cask @ the brewery. Pours cloudy medium golden with small head. Aroma is big bitter citrus notes. Taste is clean, sweet somewhat thin body. Massive hops - notes of pine, grass, grapefruit. Bitterness lingers but not so much that it interferes with the crisp finish. Incredibly drinkable for the abv.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours clear dark yellow with one finger head that fades to a persistent film. Pine/citrus aroma. Very clean taste of citrus with just the right amount of sweet malts. Full palate, not sticky or syrupy. Nice hop and alcohol tingle. Finish of pine hops but not overbearing. I’m not a big IPA guy but this is very good.
