3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange color with a thick pillowy head that fades very, very slowly. Aroma is musty, wet grass, citrus, and pine. Taste is a hop bomb. Lots of fresh hops mixed with strong bitterness. Grapefruit, lemon, pine, and grass. Finish is smooth and creamy. Thick mouthfeel for a DIPA, I think its because the carbonation foams up a bit. This is definitely a palate wrecker. I like the mouthfeel but I would really like some more malt backbone to balance just a bit. Good but not great DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft Pours a orange copper with a small white head. Aroma of big citrus and fresh pine needles. Taste of initial light sweet of deep fruit that leads back into the grapefruit and slight pine that lingers. Med light body that sticks to the tongue and has a long bitter finish. Over all great winter IPA that leaves its wreaking mark.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft at D’s Monroeville this beer poured a dark caramel-orange color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was semi sweet pine, tropical fruits and sugar. The flavor was very bitter and rough with piney hops and sour caramel. Turns dry towards the long bitter and rough finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very clear copper pour. Medium white head with some lacing. Super floral hop aroma with lots if citrus as well. It smells like putting your nose in a just opened pack of hops. Taste is like "hop tea." Very bitter. Floral and citrusy. Like sucking on a lemon. Freaking awesome for a hop head.

Pours a clear amber with a 2-fingered white head. Smells of spruce and more spruce, orange, floral blossoms. Taste is bitter and moderately sweet - quite a hop-bomb - spruce, orange, grapefruit, followed by caramel, white bread.

It really is a plate wrecker, But is this a good thing? I love most DIPA’s, but this is too aggressive and one sided.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Pours a copper color, aroma is citrusy hoppy grapefruit and som pineyness and a slight grassyness note. Taste is resiney hops upfront with grapefruit and citrucy and some lemon peel notes. Bitterness lingers all the way back and sticks to your tongue like resin. If you like dank bitter hops this is your best choice. I personally would like a bit more of a Sweeter malt character to balance out the strong bitterness hops.This is probably the hoppyest beer ive had so far. This beer wasnt crafted to be the perfect balanced tastyest beer. It was crafted to get you hopped the f*ck out! Very great beer! HOP BOMB!!
