When a beers name starts with hops its not surprising when the taste is in accordance with that. The lacing on the glass tells me that my drinks per pint goes down as the number of beers I drink goes up. The colder this beer is served the better it is. Itís rough at first but they say the body gets used to anything and it does. Drink the 6 and wear the hop crown.

Very bitter in taste.
The bitterness overwhelms the flavours and is hard to get past.

Kind of a skunky taste, but "ok". A subpar imperial, but by god this is the coolest bottle design ever! I love this dude holding a bottle in one hand a hop stick or whatever in the other...awesome!

(Backlog) Bright orange color with a light white head. Pineapple pepper mix in the smell with some yeast and earth. Taste is much like the smell medium bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. Pours orange with thin white head that lingers. Mild hop aroma over medium carbonation. Bitter with no complexity and a bit boozy. Not great.

Brown, a bit hazy body with small white head. Not that strong aroma with hops and some grass. Mouthfeel is oily at first, then soft with medium carbonation, itís quite big actually. Taste itself is dry, mostly bitter, right about what youíd expect from an IIPA. Itís pretty average in its category but overall, not too bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber with some fine white head. Nose is quite sweet, with some candied orange, guava, toffee and a hint of booze. Flavour is caramel and plum up front, giving way to grapefruit, some solventy tastes, a white grape component and then lots of grapefruit bitterness on the finish. Slight bit of biscuit on the finish too, which I like. Medium body, low carbonation. Not bad, but it doesn?t hide the alcohol particularly well. However take this with a grain of salt, because it?s traveled around the world.

Poured from Bottle, pours a cloudy orange colour.
Smells of sweet citrus fruits.
like the aroma also tastes of sweet citrus fruits, also some very strong grapefruit bitterness and a nice caramal flavour.
Overall. A decent beer, that is delicate and welcoming and at the same time rough and very forward, these attributes are what i expect in an ipa and i would recommend this to others.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with a creamy lasting white head and light carbonation. Aromas are light but tropical fruit and some pine needles are evident. Taste starts out with a big whack of fairly aggressive hop bitterness and pine resin. That gives way to subtler flavours of passion fruit, pineapple and white grapes over a sweetish malt backbone. Not bad.
