On tap at GABF. Pours with a clear yellow body and a white head. Aromas are strongly hoppy, dank, but quite pungent, onion and a bit of cat piss. Flavors are quite bitter, pungent, really strong ammonia/cat piss. Lively bubbles, dry. Just too pungent sadly, the hop presentation and malt bill were nice, but ammonia overpowered.

Courtesy of jayg, thanks Jay. Pours clear copper with gold edges and thin off white head. Wow, big aroma of pine hops that seem to border on wet hops along with grassiness. It delivers a big mouth feel full of pine, resiny, grassy, wet hops that hit the spot for this hop head of mine. A mild malt sweetness never exceeds at making its presence felt beyond just a murmur. It leaves a nice pine hop sense into the after taste.

On tap at the 2009 NABA. A stand out beer for sure. No surprise that it won gold. Pours a golden color with a medium frothy white head. A huge aroma of citrus hops, grapefruit and pine. The flavor was excellent; bitter, lots of citrus, pine and caramel malts as well. Flavorful and strong but very quaffable like a good IIPA should be. I wish I had tried this a few more times.

Growler. Thanks, C! What an awesome treat. Pours a murky bright orange with a dense and creamy light tan head. Big sweet and juicy grapefruit and caramel nose. Creamy thick body with sluggish carb. Chewy mid palate, lots of heavy malt, some unfermented malt sugar for sure. Big presence. Lots of flavor--big heavy sweet finish.
