Thanks to realale420 for this pour. Burnt orange in color with hugh fothy head. Big nose of hops, I mean big. Flavor is all hops up front, then is mellowed by a good balance of malt. Finish is dry and hoppy.

Medium gold. Frothing healthy head. Spruce, candied citrus (citron, almost artificially) some flowery rose petal. Medium bodied, healthy, yet balanced bitterness. Moderately dryish finish (not too syrupy) Soft in th mouth. This hop combo is good, but not spectacular. Solid double IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange. 3.5cm of frothy, white head. All hops in the nose- skunk, earth, cannabis, resin, pine, citrus. Flavor is the same. Malt adds just a touch of sweetness and some weight to the body. Full on the palate, balanced carbonation. Very bitter with great hop flavor. Soild IIPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Pours a slightly hazy orange/copper color with an off-white head and sticky lacing. Big hoppy aroma. Grapefruity but a bit odd. Something else I cant put my finger on. Vanilla maybe. Flavor is thick and malty, lots of body and plenty of sweet caramel malts and the IBUs to balance.
Nice, big IPA but the flavors were a little off for me. Thanks Jordan

Bottle: Copper color, sticky white head, nice lacing. The nose is funky with lots of citronella and grapefruit along with some catty notes and vanilla. The flavor is chewy and sweet with lots of bitter and dry hops, sticky and thick. A machete to cut through these hops. The finish is starchy and sharp. Nice and tasty, but a bit brash.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Courtesy SoLan. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Puff, puff, pass. Smells of the chronic. Monster hop aroma with just a touch of grapefruit. The taste is obviously monster hops as well, with a distinct bitterness to it. Alot of pine in the taste as well. This one just beats you and beats you down in the hop category. The finish actually mellows out in the hop departmet amd has some nice citrus fruit to it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy Orange/Gold Color with White Head. Fresh Wet and Dry Hopped Aroma. Easy to Assume that Your Palate is About to Receive a Hop Attack. Medium Mouthfeel. Very Sweet but Dry Hops Balance it Out Quite Well. Initial Notes of Citrus, Particularly Grapefruit. A Bit Piney. Very Nice Hit of Mouth Watering Hops. Sweet Herbal Dry Aftertaste. Very Well Done Impy IPA.

Pours golden with a medium, dense, lasting head. Big citrus, grapefruit, aroma. Nice lacework covers the glass. Big bitterness hits the tongue with a slight sweetness, bitterness lingers on. Awesome. Body is just perfect. Thick enough to stand up to the huge bitterness and alcohol. And even a bit of malt to back everything up. Brilliant.
