3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into IPA glass. Pours a very clear golden color with an incredibly thick white fluffy head. Minimal to no lacing on the glass. Aroma is hoppy, piney, citrusy, and pineapple-y. Taste has a hoppy punch up front with similar notes as the aroma. Hides the 9.4% ABV well. Lingering bite even after each swallow is finished. Otherwise, goes down really smoothly.

Big thanks to William for hooking me up with this! Pours a hazy yellow, smells fantastic, lots of grapefruit, citrus and other hop goodness. Taste up front is loads of bitterness followed by a grapfruit hoppy taste and hints of sweetness, the finish is slightly dry buy overall very crisp. Great IPA

Excellent DIPA make sure you drink this one fresh. It isnít even close to the same after a few months of age are on this one. The taste doesnít even allude to the ABVís in this one.

A good friend told me that he did a blind taste test with his wife who had proclaimed Hop Slam to be her favorite beer. She was surprised to have preferred this beer. Maybe I will have to do the same, because I still believe Hop Slam to be far superior. Poured far lighter than I expected. So much so, that I rather rudely inquired with our server whether he had brought out the correct beer. Smelled of cotton candy. Tasted was a mix of piney hops and honey. Great beer, but not the greatest. Draft - Augustineís - Atlanta, GA

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Date stamp is smudged off but its definitely from April, 2013. 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A - Pours a hazy dark yellow/orage with a cap of white foam. Really nice lacing and retention.
S&T- Tropical fruit juice, tons of bitter grapefruit and a touch of onions. Taste is bitter grapefruit juice and some pith. Earthy and a bit danky. A nice bready malt backbone. A really solid grapefruit heavy brew.
O - I really enjoy this one, however its hop profile is not my favorite.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Musty, stinky hop aroma. Golden color. Small white head. Reminds me of the All Day but full strength. Good bitter flavor and medium body.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma of this beer is very, very hoppy (specifically grass, citrus, and spruce hops), and the appearance is a hazy orangeish golden color with a large white head that fades quickly. The taste, despite what the scent would lead you to believe, is extremely well balanced with its mild bitterness, mild sweetness, and its touch of sourness, and the palate combines an average carbonation, long bitter finish, thin texture, and a medium body. All in all, this is a very enjoyable beer with superb balance.
