4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap: This must be the most bitter beer that I’ve ever drank. It is everything that an DIPA has turned up to 11. The high alcohol was not noticeable as crushing bitterness overwhelms everything.

Yummy! Poured this one into a wine glass to appreciate the nuances of the beer - who am I kidding - its a hop monster that slaps you like a wet kipper

A hop explosion, a true hop heads dream. Resinous as they come toffee undertones. I am sure this may be a bit much for some, but for a hop lover such as myself its about as good as it gets ! Love this brew green flash is an amazing brewery. 149 wonderful ibu’s.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to a trade. Pours a clear amber gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of of resin with some grapefruit and a hint of underlying flora. Flavor starts with a touch of flora and grapefruit and has a growing resin note through the finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Filtered looking orange-tan. Frothy head fades away after awhile, but some foam remains on the edges. Relatively mild aroma, some melon, grapefruit. Really fresh, really well balanced. Doesn’t really wreck my palate, this is a pretty drinkable, refreshing IIPA. Certainly has lots of hop character, but it is cool, crisp, tropical melon tinged..not resinous and piny overload like the IIPAs of yesteryear. Really solid offering.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium sized tan head with fair retention and lacy lacing. Hazy, copper appearance. big nose, juicy, floral, lil burnt wiring, earthy and citrusy with some resiny notes. Body is med/full, nice carboantion, oily and slightly raw. Well blanced with large amounts of citrusy and piney hops with a faintly sweet but biscuity malt backing and a lil hubba bubba too! Finish is juicy and long with a milder than expected bite. ABV be damned! Ya cant tell its over 9! Nice. Bottle from statelineliquors.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grassy floral light pine aroma.
Hazy orange, creamy offwhite head
Very perfumed hoppy flavor, pine, lime. Extremely sticky oily resin clinging to the palate. Not enjoying this very much, terribly unbalanced, why not just drink hop extract directly?

On tap at the Mad Taco. Pours clear deep amber with minimal white head that fades quickly to trace. HUGE and complex hops layered with caramel aroma. Flavor a sharp bitter/salt/sweet with caramel in the back. Tapers evenly to a sharp bitter finish. Overall I love big complex beers and big hops and this does nicely.
