Bottle to oversized snifter (thanks Chris). Looks good;burnt-orange with thin lacing. Smells great; nice hop scent. Tastes good, but not like Dreadnaught or Heady Topper. It is a month old though. Still, damn good beer!

Iím not an ipa fan, which means this is a very high rating. Delicious sharp bitter aroma. Smooth drink and impressively the head lasts to the last drop.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Whole Market Foods SF. Bottled 13 Dec 2013. Pours a clear golden with a nice thick white head. Nose is a tropical fruit bowl - lychee, passionfruit, pine and oranges. Fucking hell this is fresh. Could smell this for days. Tastes very fruit driven lots of passionfruit, pine and lychees coming through. Strong hop bitterness clings to the palate. Caramel malts sweeten the palate ever so slightly. Smooth drinking. This is definitely one the best Iíve ever had. So glad I found this baby!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
