Bottle from Walmart. Medium copper in color. Pungent hop nose with a little sweet fruitiness. Grapefruit bitterness up front. Not biting bitterness, but more of a balanced flavor. Midrange quaffable impy IPA.

From a bottle; pours slightly hazy gold. Persistent, thick white lacing. Aroma is a malty overtone. Taste is juicy, assertively bitter with a malty backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

While not normally my kind of brew (Iím far more partial to Eureopan beers), I must say that I am very impressed by the one thing that this highly-hopped beer has that too many others lack - balance. The pour is a honey-coloured brew, more opaque than transparent, and that bright, fresh, citrus hop aroma is very strong indeed. Fortunately, once tasted, the beer is backed by a sweet, honey-flavoured and caramel-esque malt, which helps taper the aggressive hops. The integration of the malt and hops may sound like it conflicts, but they actually compliment one another, rounding off the aggressiveness of each other. A demanding, interesting brew, and very well made.

"this one likely had a little age on it. it had the requisite thick chewy body and resiny-ocity to it, but it was all bitter and malt in the aroma and flavor. the hop aromas and flavors had obviously faded. too bad - it was still decent and seemed like it could bevery pleasant fresh."

Pours a dark golden, very opaque; thick looking. Initial smells of citrus and honey coming through. Tastes of strong IPA on the back of the tongue, extremely strong bitter aftertaste. Very unique tasting! However, a fruity aftertaste would do the beer justice.

This beer pours a deep golden colour with a small white head with large bubbles. Citrus nose and peach and a hint of caramel taste with a big bitter hit. Lovely big beer. Pity it's out if commission.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy gold. Persistent, thick white head. Aroma of grass, sugar, citrus zest. Taste is juicy,assertively bitter without being overwhelming. Orange, lemon, hints of lime. Grassy, bitter finish. Crisp, clean. Lower end of the DIPA abv range, not much booze to muddle things.
