4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasted multiple times at GABF. This became my all time favorite at the festival. Almost all I tasted for 3 hours were IPAs and IIPAs and I went back to this one as the standard (at least to my palate). It sums up nearly everything I find likable in this style. I would swim, bathe, shower, and sleep in this if possible. How’s that for hyperbole?

Poured from the bomber, chunky dark orange, with a tan tinted white 2 finger head. This one is spicy, sticky, piney, super strong, and dry at the end. I don’t mind paying the $9- for a bomber with this kind of power.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tumbler pint glass. Pours amber with a rather thick and lively carbonation. The aroma is full of hops and so is the palate. This is really a beer for the hop-lovers.

Brews n chews. I know this is a top 50 DIPA but it has long since been surpassed by the new big guns. Just a big syrupy bitter boozy bomb.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is dank, complex with notes of pine resin, earthy pepper and floral citrus. A bit of caramel malt also shines through with a hint to the coming booze character. The flavor is all of the above, but above all hot and boozy. The character of the beer is decent but lost in the defect. Pours clear and the body is med/light. Finish has some bitterness but mostly boozy.

Citrus green hop aroma straight to the nose from this hazy orange brew with an outrageous off white head of coarse bubbles. Bitterness at first for a second then hop flavor followed by the sweetness of the Malt and a medium body. The aftertaste is hoppy and slightly bitter and a slight warming from the alcohol.
