What a taste experience. Convinced to try this by my hop head brother & another friend. Overwhelming hops, don’t know any other way to put it. Still not a hop head, but seriously, this was some intense stuff, and thats not a bad thing. At 10% its quite a kick.

I really didn’t much care for this one. For one the hop bouquet was musty and dank with nothing in particular raising to the top. Another reason was that the flavor was basically just bitter without any hop taste.
Perhaps this was old for I did not check for a date on the bottle.

Amber pour. Very strong, citrus and floral aroma. Hoppy and bitter with a hint of alcohol (Still very well hidden) it has lots of flavour. Overall its very good and one I hope I will be able to get my hands on again in the near future.

Amber with foamy white head...a little sediment. Strong hoppy aroma. Taste is biscuity malt and huge hops. Hops are citrusy and piney. Well balanced. Long finish lasts forever. Alcohol well hidden. A solid imperial IPA.

Draft. Great clear copper pour with a medium white head. Pretty nice hop aroma of grass, earth, and citrus. Interesting and good flavor, with biscuit malt fairly prominent and a good citrus and earth hop blast. Medium-full body with great bitterness and resinousness. Very solid DIPA.

Bottle. Poured pale amber with a thick, creamy two-finger off-white head that showed good retention and left some lacing. Aroma is all kind of hoppy: very resinous, lots of grapefruit and citrus, backed up with lots of caramel malt. Flavor is very hoppy but tempered by the big malt backbone. Fairly sweet; very bitter.

Pour clear amber, with a small, quickly vanishing white head.
Aroma of pine, citrus, grass, weed, tropical fruits. Simply all that is hops. And a little bit of caramel.
Taste is bitter as death, with a little bit of sweetness. just enough to make enjoyable. Bitter up front, then some sweetness, and a shit long bitter, and dry aftertaste.
Medium body, with a slight fizzy carb. This has just left my mouth to rot in the bitterness that is hops. - And I like it.

Only Sierra could have tamed this hoppy beast of a beer. Well balanced with citrus and the hops are not overwhelming.

Pours copper with a white head. Smells of pine, some resin, some melon. Tastes of sticky hops, spicy, peppery, some underlying sweet hints, bitter finish.
