3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours amber/gold with a white head. Aroma of floral/spicy/fruity hop. Med body. Flavor is floral/spicy, with some mixed fruits. Probably with citrus. It’s not dank, but it has something rather similar. It’s really tasty, and finishes towards bitter, but not very. Never noticed any heat.

Should be called Hella Boozy, clearish copper color with small white head. Notes are booze, sweet malt, agressive hops, and residual sugar. Glad that I just tried a sample of this booze Bomb ipa. Let’s keep it under 8 folks.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Altamont Beer Works. Clear golden orange pour with white foam. Very sticky, dank hop nose. A lot of grapefruit, orange, honey, and pine. A bit of weed, some body odor funk, blue cheese, and herbs...in a good way. Flavor has a hint of sweet orange and peach, but otherwise there is just a ton of pine. Some juicy, tart grapefruit and a bit of funky herbs and what I can only describe as blue cheese. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2014 On tap, 20 oz pour at Counter Burger in Fremont, CA. Tight head, low carbonation. Very hoppy as to be expected. Clean, citrus taste; no malt at all. At 9% ABV this packs a wallop, but is in no way taste tainted by the high alcoholic content. Highly recommended, but as only available on draft you will have to search for this.

On tap @ 10 East -
After having their Ganja Juice IIPA, this was right behind it and for me a better attempt at an IIPA. Definitely more hop-foward with a clean malt bill, not overly sweet in any way. Grapefruit rind in both the aroma and palate. A kiss of caramel sweetness to keep it from being hop tea. Perhaps a bit one-dimensional but I hella liked it. There. Since I’m from California and we all say "hella"...I guess I had to use it here.

3 finger cream head. Golden really nice appearance. Very crisp. Dank pine with apples. Insanely bitter. Lots of sweet crystal malt at the finish. Very piney and a touch of allspice and cloves

Sampled on tap at ale arsenal. Thin head and light orange. Smooth drinking with a bit of after taste. Really nice hop palate though. Smooth and refreshing.
