Great American IPA. Cloudy golden appearance with a fruity aroma. The first sip is full of body but becomes a hop bomb as drinking continues. Sharp but glorious bitterness towards the end. I wish this was available in Canada.

Bottle (thanks to goodbyeohio for sharing)... Poured mildly cloudy golden with a moderate head. Definitely a decent bit of sweetness on this one, but considering the higher abv alcohol notes weren’t totally detectable. Bready and sweet with some hop bitterness and resinous spice along with citrus. A little drying towards the finish.

For 10% goes smooth. But just a tad to much alcohol overwhelm bit hops do blend the alcohol taste well. Good shot though. Very cool ipa experience. Very slight spicy. Hops pop light at first then build aftertaste on waves every few seconds. Ipa mood? Worth it.

Bottlle. Color: hazy and cloudy gold/light orange. Nice and huge dirty white foam, staying all the time, perfectly lacing glass. Aroma: Just Perfect. Powerfull and amazing flavour. Citrus, mature yellow grapefruit, pines, peach, mango, pineapple, a bit spicy and biscuit. Huge, mighty hoppy bitterness balanced with malty sweetness. Beginning bitter and dry, then bitter and sweet. Hoppy liqueur. Everything what’s great from hops. Mature grapefruit, citrus, pines, mango, some pineapples, florals, a bit spicy, ginger, orange. Full body with sticky texture. Wonderfull long and warming finish. Masterly example of Imperial IPA. One of the gratest beer that i ever tasted.
