Pours a deep golden hue with a two inch head that holds the glass quite well. The taste is well balanced and provides a nice mix of hops and malt. This is easily quaffable and very refreshing. I believe batch #37 is the best one yet.

Interesting nitro pour into a pint glass.
A cloudy amber pour with a 1/2 cm long lasting off white head. Big grapefruit aromatic notes with an underlying sweetness. Nitro pour makes this a very creamy and smooth IPA. There's a great malt/hop balance with this beer. It starts off sweet and hoppy, but the end is piney as well. A great IPA.

22oz bottle split with Anndiesel, procured on her East Coast jaunt. Unfiltered thick orange-tan, steady off-white head. Resiny, grassy, herbal hop aroma, Hop forward, but a big malt body underlying. Fuggles/EKG..maybe some Cascade if I had to guess, they come off pretty big and resinous. A pretty solid IPA, somewhere between regular and Imperial. Quality offering, well done.

Large white head, massive nose with an evident bitterness. Hazy dark yellow in color. I don’t know if this is as much citrus as it is juniper like, but definitely oppy. Really nice bitterness as well as an equal balanced malt

Pour from a 22oz bomber. Beautiful translucent cloudy dark yellow brew with white head. Aroma of citrus, erbal, juniper, with hints of fresh fruit. Taste is great - moderately sweet malt at the start and nice hops running through the finish. Citrus, floral, herabal, wonderful complexity. A fine DIPA.

Tap. Pours light amber mostly clear with a small head that has good staying power with some lacing. Aroma is of citrus/grapefruit with some floral scents. Taste is slightly sweet, piney and floral. Extremely bitter from start to finish, including a very bitter aftertaste. Overall a little watery in the mouth.
