Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber. Appearance is honestly not very impressive. Crystal clear medium copper with basically no head at all. Only a tiny ring around the edge of the glass lets you know it is carbonated. Aroma is out of this world. Tons and tons of hops. Lots of passionfruit/tropical citrus character with a little bit of mild grain underneath. Flavor is, not surprisingly, nearly all hops. Huge tropical fruit character really carries this beer. A little bready malt underneath but it is very faint. Hops are king. Bitterness is not as high as I was expecting but is pleasantly assertive. The finish is slightly sticky but crisp. Overall, not my favorite IIPA but in the top 5. For the price it really can’t be beat. I would have liked to see a little more malt balance and complexity but I have a feeling this will become a regular in my fridge.

Clear medium amber with a two finger off white head that hangs around and leaves a lot of lace. Nose is big pine resin with some citrus and then some more pine with a light toffee hiding behind it all. Exceptionally bitter all the way through with enough sweet malt backbone to keep it from being really, really stoopid. Mouth is medium full an creamy with a lingering bitter finish Fully expected this to be excessively astringent, but it is actually very drinkable for the level of bitterness and the alcohol is well hidden.

22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma is grassy and piney, with hints of barnyard and resin. Mouthfeel is sweet and smooth in the beginning, and finishes crisp, with a long bitter and slightly astringent aftertaste. Great balance between hop profile and malt backbone.

MoritzF (8521) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2014
(bottle, 66cl, courtesy of jfb – thanks!) Slightly hazy, golden to light-amber colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel and a present hops character, including herbal, almost a bit ethereally notes and a citrus-fruity touch. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a mild carbonation. Slightly bready malt-accented taste with notes of caramel, cookies and a whiff of cough syrup, accompanied by spicy herbal, slightly minty touch, also a rather restrained fruity touch; moderately dry bitter-sweet and quite rounded finish. 27.VIII.14

Patrickctenchi (3718) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle: Clear gold, fizzy, with a frothy, off-white head. Resin, grapefruit peel, pine aroma. Taste is malty, sweet fruit... Resiny but not overpowering, nicely balanced alongside the tangerine/semi-tropical flavours... Excellent.

Shot (150) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden with a thick, creamy head. Excellent head retention. Aromas of sweet malt, floral hops and bitter citrus. A burst of floral hops in the first sip; sweet malt, bitter citrus, fresh hop bite. Much like an IPA, but not as heavy. Crisp and light. Light to Medium mouthfeel; slightly oily. Overall, a crisp, delicious ale with an abundance of gorgeous, fresh hops.

Keg at Aces & Ales, Las Vegas. Clear burnished gold, head that recedes to thin layer. Big green dank aroma, oranges, unripe mango. Moderate sweet then big bitter, dank green hops. Fairly light body. Very nice.

Clear radiant orange with big frothy lasting white head. Great big balanced bitter sweet full body. Outpaces a lot of the forgettable new wave IPA’s. Loaded! Just stoopid! Boom... In 20 Years people will look at this like people look at Rochefort.

I can drink this all day long. I paid $4 for a 22 oz. Very affordable It is very hoppy and has above average drinkability. I feel like I can mow the lawn and drink several of these. Top class! Cheers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to pint at Dutch’s. Looks good; a fairly transparent pale burnt orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of pine and citrus hops with a medium-bodied bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Good beer.
