A fine beer, definitely not for the faint of heart. this beer grabs you from the first sip and doesnt let go. the flavor profile is strong and robust with obvious pine and resin at the beginning but finishes nicely with a combination of grapefruit, caramel, tobacco and leather notes on the finish. if you dont dig this beer its ok... more for me.....

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to riversideAK for this gem. Big hoppy and pine nose with a nice clear amber color and brown head. Flavor is right to the point with hops all over the place, yet it is well balanced with anice malt backbone. Creamy nice sweet texture that has a great hoppy finish.

22oz prelude to some cali funk to put me into another day yes. very sweet and hoppy very ipish a tad alcoholic, a bit very hoppy and dry, yet refreshing piney yes but still like a drying experience with every taste which is bothersome a bit. not enough malt o deal with all the hops in this bottle is what I am coming to the conclusion of.

Bottled (Thanks Stoutlover72!). Deep amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is bready and grassy/flowery hops. Flavour is the same along with a balancing touch of fruityness. Also some slight yeastyness and alcohol can be cfound. Big grassy and alcoholic aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark nut-orange color, small off-white head. Bready, citrusy hoppy aroma. Very malty, bready hoppy flavor. Notes of citrus, but mostly yeasty and alcoholic. Warming, but not kind of IPA I like, Score 4.06 seems quite overrated if judged by this bottle.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a golden orange with an off white head. Head retention is very nice. Aroma is dominated by pine hops. Hops dominate this beer. There was so much complexity to this beer’s hop profile. Citrus and pine to name a few. End with some lingering hops along with some slight sweet malts. Amazing IPA.
