Super bitter. Yet the ABV was very strong and took away from the overall experience. I would put it behind Lagunitas Hop Stoopid and Bell's Hopslam.

In my opinion, this is the measuring stick for an IIPA. Bottle, poured a nice copper color. Absolutely fantastic. Aroma of citrous, pine and hops. Similar flavors with a strong bitterness followed by the alcohol coming through in the end. Very smooth and to be enjoyed like a fine whiskey.

Bottle. Orange malt and pine/orange peel aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Sweet orange malt flavor initially quickly overwhelmed by strong bitter pine/grapefruit peel hops finish. Nice balance. Tasty.

Deep orange with beige head. Massive, clean, soapy, citrus, pine nose that offers up plenty of damp pine and mango nose as it warms. rich mouthfeel has some bready notes and sweetness as it delivers huge, quite complex, hop profile.

Wow! A delicious and hoppy beer. Aroma was nice. Grapefruit rind, melon, pepper. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger white head. Taste was big and hoppy. Very bitter grapefruit rind, grass and sweet malt. Tastes like thick and resinous hop juice. Nice carbonation and a long bitterly dry aftertaste. One of the best beers I’ve had all year.

Bottle share with ol’ Chipalsa the Barnacle Buster. Whaaaaattt!!!! Nose is plenty of sweet caramel, pine, and citrus. Floral and grassy notes, too. This one is quite balanced in the aroma. Plenty of both malt and hops. This is a hop heads brew for sure. This one is quite sweet but has huge hop flavors of pine and citrus. Bronze colored with a medium body, this brew is sure to please those looking for an intensely hopped brew.

Snifter --> Had a nice and clean golden, body with light bubbles leading up to a huge billowy white head. There was an incredible, almost spicy floral hop aroma with traces of honey and grapefruit. After the scent wakes you up, the taste buds are gifted with a massive hop body. The light malt character has a fresh citrus flavor - and just enough to sort of balance this brew. The finish was clean and dry, not too bitter but perfect for a hop head.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft: Pours amber/orange with a finger of creamy beige head. Pungent aroma of florals and grapefruit. Tastes thick with hops... chewy and rich, florals and citrus hops with just enough maltiness to keep things in check. Really enjoyable.

This must be the sequel to the original. Pretty solid DIPA with aromas of grapefruit. Fairly sweet but a nice bitter hop finish. Very smooth and creamy palate. Recommended.
