pour golden with nice head. Dry, bitter, citrus, resiny, lingers on your tongue long after. ABV very nicely hidden by the heavy hops. Very nice California IIPA.

Pours amber-gold with a medium white head. Aroma is flowery hops, pine, and something I can’t pinpoint. Taste is pine, grapefruit rind and mango, followed by a strong bitter finish. The malt profile is minimal in this one.

Like the kids say: OMG! You’d never know this was 8.5%. Well, ok, you will know because you’ll feel warm inside and the world will take on a rosy glow. Insanely drinkable. Big, fat malty pillow of goodness supporting massive hop excellence. Citrus, resin etc all the usual suspects. I can’t say any more.

dry cereal, citrus, bitterness, grass, earthy hops, caramel
Yellow amber color
Caramel malts up front, puckery hop mid palette, bitter finish. Yum.
Oily, tightening of taste buds from bitterness. Again, yum.
Solid beer for a bitter IPA fan.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Daily Pint. Clear orange amber with a bright white fluffy head and excellent lace. Strong floral and citrus hops aromas with a hint of pine. Hops dominate the flavor profile as well, but are supported by a strong bready malt foundation. Medium to full body, moderate effervescence, creamy smooth mouthfeel, and a crisp finish.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours wonderful hazy orange little head and coats the glass nicely. Smells oh so so skunky in the best chronic way possible like lemon, kush and skunk cabbbage and a little boozy. Tastes so bomb and complex hoppy flavors.

12oz bottle poured into glass. The aroma was pleasant, with hints of citrus and caramel but the flavor was just too malty for my liking.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear deep golden color out of the tap with a sticky white head. Gorgeous citrus hop and resin nose. This is a huge hoppy beer with sticky candied grapefruit, orange peel, pineapple upside down cake and a noticeable alcohol tone. Long bitter hop resin. This is a great, fresh hop head beer. Very nice.
