22 oz bottle. Clear copper with a whitish head. Nose is orange, toffee, cherry, apple and slight feline. Crisp medium body with a hoppy bite. Taste is grapefruit juice and peel, lemon zest and citrus honey. Bitter and bready; good for a hop fix.

This is another winner from Hop Valley. Taste is REALLY balanced.....such excellent clarity of purpose. What a great beer. Taste is dead-on West coast IPA...citrus but not as up-front as their CITRUS MISTRESS. More old school ground and pound with excellent backbone of great malts. This brewey is one to watch.

Very nice Imperial IPA that is very well balanced, but still aggressively hopped. Very nice aroma of pine and citrus and all the bitterness you expect from a great West Coast IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle thanks to a double trade with writerljberg and douglas88. not sure who gets the credit. poues a hazy dark orange with small white head that dissipated quickly. Nose is straight up dank and weed. wow. Taste is similar, with the hops flavor up front and quickly turning bitter. The hop flavor seems to come out more as I drink it, but the malt kind of falls flat and the beers seems a bit watery. otherwise, great hop expression if you’re into that danky hop (reminds me of la cumber project dank), which I am. very solid, could just use a bit more mouthfeel/malt, but without sweetening the beer.
