Pours a reasonably cloudy dark golden with a white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is extremely strong tropical fruit. Taste matches well with the aroma, lots of various fruity flavors hidden in this gem. Not very bitter at all. A delicious achievement nonetheless.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
650ml bomber. Beautiful golden straw color. Small head with light lacing. The aromas are all tropical fruit, pineapple, guava, some light grapefruit and pith, almost a lemon peel thing, itís beautiful. The hop oil aromas are fantastic. Palate is very well balanced with more fruit character and beautiful hop bitterness.This beer definitely stands up to all the hype. Itís extremely well made. This is one of my favorite IPAís

Bottle to IPA glass
Consummation: Mango and grapefruit rind...hella fruity
Adjunct: Tons of bitterness and that shit lasts; this is what Apex or Horse Brass smell like, just a cloud of C-hoppiness, slightly hazy amber with tons of effervescence; I can see why this is consistently rated high. Me like.

Bottle, shared with Grippitis, Parksy, and PQ. Medium orange-gold, a bit hazy, lasting white head. Big tropical fruit hop character, really fresh, with piney undertones. Same on the palate-- mango skin, grapefruit, pine-- with crackery malts and a long bitter finish. Yum.

Draft at FreshCraft, Brownish orange color with small to medium head. Notes are ultra bitter and ashy with some wood, coffee, pine, and other florals. Didnít like profile on this, needed more cleanliness and citrus.
