Pours a cloudy orange with an off white head and aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is bittersweet, of hops, pine, citrus, and grapefruit with a nice striking bitter, dry finish. Delicious IPA

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle sent by skyview. Pours a rich slightly hazed golden with respectable off white head that leaves some nice lacing. Upon pour, the hops hit my nose and I am liking what I am smelling. Slightly fruity with hints of pine. After I get it into my glass, it becomes a bit more subdued. This is really mellow, but balanced with just enough sweet citrus pine. The malt only shows enough to add a small slightly sweet body to it. Very balanced for sure. Just enough body, tight carb that just gives enough feel to make the hop bittering show in the finish and lingers just a touch on the palate. Not sure how old this is either, but isn’t showing any sign of ’dead hops’ either. Solid and could drink a couple of these easily.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Pours a clear gold color with a very thin white head. Nose holds a lot of fruity smells such as honeydew melon, strawberry, peach, orange, and pineapple. Flavor holds some canned mandarin orange, clementine, strawberry, and grapefruit that overrides a subtle malt sweetness. This sweetness quickly falls off in the finish as an overwhelming bitterness lives up to the beer’s namesake, and it gets to be too much for my liking as it takes on a medicinal note. Mouthfeel is medium and the carb is dialed in. Overall this is a decent beer. I really enjoyed the aroma, but did not particularly care for the whoopin’ that the hops put on my tastebuds in the finish.

On nitro at Stubby’s. Pours a deep amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus. Creamy on the palate with smooth carbonation. Flavor is sweet, hoppy, citrus, with a clean, bitter hop finish. Differnt to have an IPA on Nitro.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours a golden yellow, very clear, with a bit of a head. Aroma is all hop juice. Pine and floral. Lovely. Taste has that sticky hop flavor with some sweetness and a bit of a vegetal taste. Somewhat syrupy. Very bitter, but not in a citrusy way. Finishes shorter than expected. Quite a powerful aroma that would have been a terrific double ipa if followed all the way through.

Pours a gold color with a thin quickly-fading white head and no lacing. Aroma is very citric, pineapple. Taste has good citric hops but very little bitterness.......surprisingly. Smells a lot like Hopslam but lacks the bitterness and complexity of Hopslam, Double Trouble, etc.

Pours a clear, radiant, light orange golden. Large frothy white head. Fruity hoppy, juicy, fresh aroma. Very. Nice. Citrus, orange, light grapefruit, little tropical, just enough malt character to balance. Medium body. Excellent bitterness. Flavor adds some resininess, pine. Nice sweetness to balance the bitter. Excellent beer.

Bottle. The pour is a bright hazy orange with a thick creamy head. The aroma is floral hops, and a lot of them. The taste is a mouthful of hops, almost drinks thick. A very nice ipa.

Pours a cloudy golden with a white head. Full aroma of grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, and some piney undertones. Taste is very bitter and hoppy. Much more pine comes through initially in the taste with citrus flavors, being mostly grapefruit, becoming apparent later. Big hops taste here throughout. Medium bodied with more of a slick texture. Long bitter pine aftertaste. This is my first experience from this brewery and I am extremely impressed with this.
