IPABevyGuy (46) - New York, USA - NOV 8, 2014
This is like a sculpin on steroids. Very hoppy, citrus and a little earthy, with a bit of malt to balance it out. Flavor lingers around very nicely and you would never know it’s 10% ABV. Awesome brew!

10/26/2014. 22 oz. bottle. Floral, hoppy aromas with hints of caramel. Typical SD style IPA with all it entails. Big and bitter, loads of hops and a very long finish.

PacNWDad (106) - Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2014
On draft at Chuck’s 85th as part of a 4-Ballast Point beer sampler. Golden hue, pretty clear, thick head and lots of lace on the sides. Strong hops notes, with lots of citrus - grapefruit in particular, and tropical fruits like passionfruit. Caramel and brown sugar from the malt. Strong bitter flavor, then sweetness from the malt, overall a good balance. Body is heavy and oily, a little alcohol pepperiness, not highly carbonated. Overall another great beer from a great brewery.
