4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Smooth, oily texture with a wonderful hop taste. The hop profile is nice, with grapefruit notes. The hop profile is distinct, tasty while not being overwhelming or lingering which is usually the case. The is an easy sippin DIPA. 9.3 alcohol hardly noticeable. I love this beer!

Pours a bright golden pear with a short lived, slightly off-white cap of loose foam. Not much activity in the body.
The nose is stuffed with booze soaked hops, heavy grapefruit, this takes about every direction a hop-forward beer can. Some sweet malts take the stage to keep things interesting.
The taste of a perfectly executed IIPA is hard to describe... itís heavy, itís approachable, itís sweet, itís bitter, itís fucking delicious is what it is.
This beer rocks.

From beerlicious iphone app: Spruce aroma with a clear golden color sporting a minimal white head. Light bittery notes to compliment the sourness. Finishes with heavy bitterness and medium sour notes. Oily slick mouthfeel with average carbonation.
