UPDATED: MAY 17, 2014 On tap at independent ale house in rapid city. Nice green hop aromas. Very bitter hoppy and resiny flavours. This one hits back pretty hard. Very nice.

Herbal, resin, subtle fruit aroma. Tropical fruit, spicy, herbal, resin hop flavor; supported by sweet/bready/biscuit malt. Substantial mouthfeel... Lingers on the tongue. Firm bitterness. Maybe a tiny bit of alcohol, not much--warming for sure.
Seems like early batches were a lot sweeter and more resiny than this, which is an improvement.

One of my favorite Imperial IPAs! Reminds me a lot of Hop Slam(with the sweet aftertaste(honey?)). Like it a bit better, and its a better value.

I went to the store looking for 90 minute and I saw this beer on the shelf so I couldn’t not get it. It pours a golden see through gold. It’s aroma isn’t too powerful but it’s nice and hoppy. It tastes bitter and citrusy but not as bitter as hopslam

12oz bottle into a sierra nevada snifter. best 10.4 Ive ever had,no doubt. Pours a brilliant orange red amber combo with golden hues in the background. Head is maintained around the glass but holds steady. Taste is pretty much a torpedo x2, heavnly hoppy, tastefully delicilious, fun going down and the hop bite withholds after everything, Tangy, juicy hops are profound. I dont get the brewed just yesterdya feel like the stones enjoy by, but this is still legit and compelling enough to resonate a profound rating. still cant beleive its 10.4, what? glad i found this one randomly in a random western mass packy that shouldnt have even been offering it, and at 9.99 a 4 pack, i think i lucked out. classic brew right here.

Very big, well balanced DIPA. A little light on the nose but well balanced taste with a bit of a thick finish on the mouthfeel.

I’m not a hop head, but I appreciate a well balanced IPA. This isn’t really that. Leaves an astringency on the tongue that means you need to drink as much water as beer.
