Great aroma of hops and citrus. Good deep copper thick color with a nice head. Nice balance of malt at first, then the hops hit you over the head with a strong finish.

Pours with a hazy amber color. good head retention. As you would expect the flavor of this beer was totaly dominated by the hops. A good beer although I would like a little more balance. If you are a Hop Head this beer is for you.

Slightly hazy, dark copper color. Hoppy aroma backed up with a little sweetness. Flavor is the same. Fairly thick and satisfying mouthfeel. Bitterness is somewhat subdued despite 70+ ibus.

Big strong tastes in this one - maximum sticky hop resins backed up with huge malty sweetness gave this some real fruity characterisitcs. The palate was extremely creamy and thick. Hops were listed at 77 IBU, but, maybe because of the malt balance, it actually seemed tamer than their IPA. Refreshing.

Pours a hazy, caramel color with a huge white head that leaves strange, beautiful rocky formations as it dissipates. The aroma is quite pleasant. Creamy, malty caramel exudes sweet, perfumey hop scents. The flavor is dominated by strong citrus and pine notes. The malt exists but isn't quite enough to balance it all out. The hop flavor is nice. Strong, but not overbearing. A damn good IPA, but a little better balance would make this incredible.

Golden color, lingering head left some lacing on the glass. Fresh hop aroma with just a touch of malt in the background. Flavor matches the aroma with the balance on the bitter side. Bitter dry finish. I could drink a lot of this beer.

This is one of the best IPA's around. Nice hoppy flavor! Balance between hops and malts just right. Bitter yet floral. This one is BOLD!

VERY fruity IPA. I don't know what the hops variety is but wow what a distinct flavor. Very dry and bitter but a nice clean finish. I really like the IPA. It's a little different than most but its a nice change.
