Bright gold color with nearly no head, just an off-white ring. Aroma has nice fruity citrusy hops and flavor has great fruity hop flavor with a bit of honey and malty finish. Very little bitterness with fantastic sweet flavor.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a cool orangey clear color. Lots of very sticky white head and lacing that just keeps hanging around. Citrusy dank aroma, mmmmm. Mouthfeel is moderate especially for this abv beer. Probably as light as it can be for a 9%+er but with slight stickiness. Taste is wow, just wow. NZ hops are what I taste first off. With lots of citrus, mango, papaya, all sorts of tropical fruit. A tiny tinge of alcohol flavor, but barely, and I’m sensitive to it. Mild alcohol warmth. Damn is this a good IIPA, and well needed by Great Lakes. Erie Monster is forgettable, Commodore Perry is crap... but this one is a winner I’ll buy every year!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very strong and distinct IPA that comes across well bodied with a good aftertaste. This is a hoppier version of a normal IPA.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber orange with an off white head and sweet, hoppy, citrusy aroma. Taste is bittersweet, lots of hops, citrus, caramel and complex fruity flavors leading to a strong bitter finish. Delicious DIPA

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at 4 months, should have gotten to this sooner. Pours copper with a slight off white head. Aroma is light grains, grapefruit, mango and pine. Flavor has some caramel sweetness, grapefruit followed by pine resin. Well done for a 9.4% IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
With Z, pours a deep rusty orange color with a small head. Nose is sweet passion fruit, aromatic and flavorful. Taste is bittersweet with deep citrus, with a predominance of passion fruit, with very small resin.... very smooth and a real palate pleaser. The alcohol very well hidden ! Finishes on bittersweet tropical notes with a moderately long finish. Quaff Score 9 / 10

What a treat it is to find a beer from my hometown brewery that I’ve never had hundreds of miles from home.
Bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville.
Pours a pretty clear amber, an inch of beige head that laces nicely.
Sweet dark fruits, pine, citrus in the nose.
Thick almost syrupy flavors in the mouth. Dark fruits, soap, pine, citrus, and finishes with pepper.

Pours a hazy orange/copper with slight head. Aroma is of citrus, sweetness. Taste of caramel, citrus - definitely some sweetness. Very smooth (alcohol hidden, not too much of a hoppy bite). Pretty good.
