Pours a slightly cloudy deep golden with a bubbly off white head. The head is persistent due to the constant migration of remarkably large carbonation bubbles from the bottom. Tangerine nose. Aggressive on the palate. Drinks pretty largely. A lot of tangerine with underlying bitterness.

Draft - nice thick head that sticks around for a long while. Can’t get much on the nose. Very strong hop flavor and really dry in the palate. With all the varieties of hop, it is hard to get a clear picture of the taste. Kinda all over the place to be honest so that is why I am giving it just an average rating even though I love a good IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From notes. On tap at Bell’s Funvitational on September 12. The pour is a golden amber with a thick white head and great lace. Aroma is bitter citrusy hop and light malt. Good tropical fruit. There is a little pine resin on the back end. The flavor is real bitter. Hops are wet and dank. Good tropical fruits. The mouth feel is decently thick, incredibly crisp, and well carbonated. The aftertaste is lingeringly bitter with some good tropical fruit hoppiness going on.

On tap in Birmingham, AL. Piney, hoppy aroma. Smooth, with a slightly bitter finish. At 10 ABV it packs a mighty kick.

Big boy IPA. Pretty orange color. Resin, grapefruit, pine nose, taste is big blast of sweet caramel, booze, and piney hops. Pretty well balanced in that every taste is big, Full bodied and sticky. Pretty tasty

12 oz. can thanks to cajzr8, much thanks Chuck! Orange hazy color with some spotty lacing. Aroma is very fruity with mild pine and light floral hints. The flavor caught me off guard, very fruity with a lasting grapefruit bitterness with some grassy hops. This brewer does a nice job of hiding the over 9% ABV. Enjoyable brew.
