Pours a brownish orange with a pillowy white head. Huge aroma of hops. A bit thin but still amazing. Slightly bitter but just the right amount. Really well done.

Good beer, a little too west coast, strong onion character but very strong hops which were enjoyable. Definitely lives up to its description.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours amber orange with a fluffy 2cm of off white head. Aroma is floral and citrus hops, bit of resin. For a citra hopped beer, the tropical/citrus flavours are pretty low-key. Touch of caramel. Taste is hop forward, citrus hop flavours with a nice, rough carbonation and bitterness. Was expecting something a bit more citra-esque considering it is a IIPA, but still solid.

On tap in California - aromas are leather and wet herbs. Mouthfeel is bitter with strong alcohol, but lighter body.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Bev4Less, Santee, CA. Pours a deep amber hue, though still has a surprisingly translucent look to it. Foam is slightly off white, and kinda sparse, but whatís there is sticky. Aromas are BIG of pine, resin, malt, resin, and maybe a touch of something like cinnamon? Who knows... probably just me. Taste is all hop-forward, followed by a balancing act between hops a the pale malts it must have required to get the ABV this high... but otherwise, this is all resin, resin, tropical fruit?!, resin, pinesol (kidding, sort of) and a nice closing balance. Have to say, this is a fine example of how this style can be done "right". Good on ya Heretic.

Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured an orange golden color with a white head. The aroma was of sweet malt, light caramel, fruity hops, peach, citrus and piney. The taste was of malt, caramel, fairly bitter fruity hops, peach, grapefruit, orangepeel and pine. Nice.

Solid IPA with fruity aroma. Pours a nice bright orange. Smells of both hops and tropical fruit. Taste is similar, a nice mix between hoppiness and fruitiness. Not too bitter of a finish.
