Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye.
Poured a hazy light amber with white head, good retention. Aroma of hoppy citris, like grapefruit, smells very nice.
Flavor of hoppy citris, light sweetness, nice bitter. Mouthfeel was medium carbonation with a light to medium mouthfeel. Very good IPA, very refreshing.....I would like this again.

Like their other beers, loads of hops in the aroma and flavor. Lots of grapefruit and some pine in the hops. A sweet malt base on this beer. Full palate, and the alcohol is well hidden. Heavy on the palate for the style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle thanks to my new bud hannont..... pours a crystal clear dark orange brown with a very thin soapy white head that formed around the edges of the glass..... a nice assertive aroma of tropical pacific northwest hops that is just very refreshing.... the majority of that aroma translates well to the flavors where it continued on that trend of tropical fruits while providing just a modicum of astringency to spicen things up. mouthfeel was pretty nice but nothing to make this one transcending..... definitely a must try for those who enjoy their tropical fruity hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another one from Skyview. Copper color with a thin head. Light pine aroma. I am sure I’ll be in the minority on this one, but it struck me as being more subdued than their regular Total Domination IPA. Light bitterness with very little citrus. Fairly light body and a watery finish.
