Delicious. If you like Hoppy and strong beers you can get at the local grocery store, (opposed to speciality beer stores) this is the beer for you. It?s easy to drink, but take your time as the 10% alcohol content sneaks up on you!

A gift from Andy at B&B.......Pours a deep golden color, the aroma is pure grassy hops. Taste is grapefruit, deep citrus puckering kind of taste. Aftertaste is over the top pure grassy hop flavor. No real hint of the 10% alcohol, everything is overwhelming grassy, citrusy hops......if you like hops this may not be for you, if you love hops this is your brew.

12 oz bottle. Liked the name, so decided to give this a shot; pleasantly surprised to see such high ratings. Pours a hazy light bronze color with a light off-white colored head. Smells of light citrus, heavy hops, and some grassy aromas. Tastes like a ton of hops, some citrus notes, a little grass and earthy tastes, and some malt. Pretty potent palate. Personally I like IPAs to have more citrus, but this is pretty impressive.

Pours a nice clear orange with thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, resin, slightly toasted malt, and a slight herbal character. Flavor matches well, but gets slight knocks for a poor bitter taste in the back of the mouth. Overall very good though.

Classic. Wouldn’t go anywhere other for a Hoppy brew. Great job. Big time hops and really nice on the palate. Fantastic.

Bottle from Total Wine. Aromas and flavor of tropical, citrus, and resinous hops. Definitely a lingering sweetness that pairs nicely with the intense hoppy flavor. There's some honey notes in there. Great beer.

Not nearly as bitter as I was expecting (and hoping). There is definitely some nice hoppiness, but its a little overpowered by the heavy alcohol flavors.
