A perfect five yes. This beast has it all from citrus black pepper floral hop aroma. Perfectly clear. Excellent lacing head lasted for ever. Crystal clear fantastic. Sharp bitterness up front saturd around a while and finished clean. If you can get this do so. Worth the price. Even here.

Bottle to pint glass Orange, grapefruit, wheat, and light pine. Clear amber with no head. Sweet with long lasting bitterness. Silky and oily texture with some astringency.

DocJitsu (1559) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours a hazy amber golden color with a short, quickly evaporating with head. Vibrant grapefruit wafts into the olfactory like a designer perfume. Not too loud, but very appealing and sexy. Tantalizes nicely. The first pull fills the mouth with slick, wet liquid that finishes with a carbonation scrub and hop burn that balances the mouthfeel well. Flavors are mellow for a San Diego IPA, but the finish bitters with yellow grapefruit tartness. Very solid.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2015 An excellent double IPA. Nicely balanced and hides its strength well. Probably too well - you could do yourself a lot of damage drinking this like a session beer!

22oz bomber thanks to raiders707. Crystal clear golden color with huge fluffy white head that lingers. Aroma is light floral and citrus hops. Really nice light tasting double IPA. Floral, citrus, grapefruit, some caramel and honey notes, with slightly bitter finish. Really refreshing!

johnbuck100 (280) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2013
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.

S_Side_Smitty (689) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2013
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.

DylansDad (558) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 21, 2013
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.

22 oz - No lace or head. Orange color with hop nose. Decent malt, active palate. Good
