Bought in a liquor store by Prohibiton in Vista. Stupendious brew!!!! Huge hit of hops on front end. Peppery, bitter, hops in you face. Settles then creeps up back for a floral harvest type finish. Very pale in color which is decieving for the mouthfeel. Not cloying, just pure crisp like a unsalted cracker. You can just smell the brew as you pour it and I am a tap whore. Labeled as an Extreme Pale WTF does that mean???? Just rating it o n the pure enjoyabiltiy

At brewery aroma good but not much there, fairly clear. Taste is where this one kicks in initial malt biscuit flavor with a great hop finish. Citrus, fresh cut grass and dry.

22ozbomber from liquor store on 101, crystal clear dark golden with big white pillow head. Grapefruit hoppy aroma with some grain peeking through. This one has more of a grain nite than most XXIPA, which was evident and like able. Finished extremely dry.

Clear amber color with ivory head. Pine, spicy hop, tropical fruit, grainy caramel aromas. Medium bodied with average co2. Spicy, citrusy hoppy flavors with tropical fruits, and a lightly sweet pale maltage____drying finish----good.

Started out as a discombobulated mess!!!! Malts all over the place...hops not mixing with brew...just way too tight and astringent. Was told by budy to pout it in a proper glass and let air out. BOY what a difference that made. The biscut croissant malt charcter in aroma brought the citrus hops in line. The astingency melted in the heat of the alcohol. After half of the glass this melded into a fine well balanced beer. Big malt backbone, then hops bitterness and alcohol dryness finished this off making you want more. But at 8.3....good thing no driving. 22 oz bomber.

Bottle pour. Clear copper color with a small white head, but good lacing. Hoppy aroma. Light to medium body. Hops, pine, light caramel, and a slight but sharp bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had on tap at OAW as locals call it. Was told this was a extreme pale ale. Yes it was pale in color and yes hops where somewhat extreme for a pale ale. Big spicy pepper aroma from hops. Slight alcohol warmth after malt presence. Great brew

Just picked up this $9 bomber at Tomís Farm in Corona. It pours with a clear copper body that supports a nice looking tan head of foam. The aroma offers up plenty of cherry and plum fruity esters (ok, what style is this?) as well as sweet candy like citrus notes. The taste is very much the same, sadly, where sweet dark fruity esters and malt sweetened muted citrus hop flavor rule the experience and run it right into the $9 per bomber ground (wtf!). Around the edges of the flavor I get a modest degree of resiny hops that donít come close to pulling this aged mess together. Iím not too happy about paying full price for such an old tasting bottle.

A double IPA for a fortnight and a day #8...What else can you say other than itís extremely Extreme. Not really a XXIPA so didint give it near perfect rating but never the less this is an exceptional beer. Definitely one of the top balanced rich pales around. Itís not over annoying with the hops. I love hoppy beers but some take it too far. I like to taste other notes besides hoppy. Itís a very good balance of flavors from hops to biscuit to great grassy aromas.

650 ml bottle from Piccadilly. Pours a hazy amber copper color with a small off-white head that slowly recedes to a coarse film. The aroma was somewhat salty with sweat, thyme, floral and a hint of citrus. The taste was bitter fruits with pink grapefruit, melons, stone fruits, dough and bitter walnuts. The palate was full and a touch pasty with lively carbonation. The finish was medium in duration and dry. Overall: The description on the bottle describes not as a DIPA, but as a "Extreme" pale ale, and I find that fits here. This is an APA on steroids, and a good one.

Poured from a 22iz bottle at 2013 GABF. Wonderful citrus hop biscuit aroma. Wish I had a real glass not the one ounce pour. Mouthfeel is really rich malty treat, with a bitter hop crisp finish. So many different dimensions to thus brew. I did taste some noticeable heat, yet I thought it was a plus, with the other characteristics of this brew.
