Draft (many) @ Rackhouse. Nose is just sticky, spicy, floral hops. Awesome nose. Flavor is surprisingly a little subdued compared to the nose, an upfront blast of florals and then a slight fruitiness before a total bash of bitterness. Little sweet/malt to back this up, so it’s generally just hop juice (albeit very, very tasty hop juice). If you’re in a hop-jones mood, this is great, if you’re looking for a complex, balanced IIPA, look elsewhere. That being said, it’s still delicious.

22 oz. bottle, sent from robloc303 (thanks a lot, Rob), pours a murky opaque rusted orange with a small white head. Nose brings out a mix of tropical fruits and dank, juicy hops. Flavour is juicy and refreshing, with loads of tropical fruits (mangos and peaches), big resinous hops, dank earthy notes, and a big fat caramel malt backing to hold everything together. Extremely dank, juicy and hoppy, with a mild astringency. Excellent balance. The big malt profile isn’t too much in this case, as the hops are boldly positioned. Great IIPA.

Hard to find which beer you had a year ago when you can’t ready your own writing. Amber. hazy. Light head. Nice citrus nose. A little heavy. Strawberry cream finish and aftertaste makes it unique. (or me drunk)

From a 22 oz bottle, but I’ve had this many times over the years, mostly from growler re-fills. Pours a cloudy apricot. Sweet and perfume hop aroma. Significant mouthfeel. Flavors of pink grapefruit rind, straw hops, amber malts, light pepper. Overall big, bold, bitter but tasty.
