Nice orange color, but has a slight haze. Very citrusy aroma. Not as strong as I like a double ipa, but the citrus/hop flavor balance makes for a very drinkable beer. I enjoyed this beer and will definitely buy it again.

Fresh just bottled, courtesy of Sonny, the brewer, who gave us homebrewers an impromptu tour and tasting when we showed up after-hours after driving from Washington State on a brew tour. Fine citrusy hoppiness balancing the smooth alcohol assault of this formidable brew. Left me wanting another one. And my wish was granted. Thanks.

Good, caramel malty flavor. Kinda fruity. Watch out, the alcohol content will really sneak up on you.

12 oz. Bottle. Lame. Aroma is sweet. Flavor is malty. Palate is outstanding. But there isn’t much left to say about this one. Very pedestrian.

330mL bottle, Pours a pretty golden hued color with very little head. Smells immediatly of hops giving it a great citrusy flavor that lingers on the back of your tongue. I actualy didn’t like it, but it is a well produced beer, just not a favorite.

Draft at Pizza Paradiso in Georgetown, Not as hoppy as I expected, pretty mild all around for the style. Good but not great.

Superb true heavy duty Ipa. Nice golden pour, super strong nose of hops and spice. It is sold in 6 packs for around $10 which is a big plus. Mad river continues to produce top notch quality beers year by year without fail. This is one you cant pass up if your a true Ipa fan.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice light aroma with a distinct hoppy taste not unlike Hop Devil from Victory Brewing but much less than Hop Wallop. Pours a beautiful amber with a good long lasting head. Light aftertaste reminds me of something like apricot, but it is very, very mild. Overall good brew worth a repeat.
