Deep golden color with nice head. Excellent IPA, which I usually donít care for. Couldnít believe that itís 8.5%. Itís masked well.

For a hop head this is heaven, for anyone else this could be hell. In order to keep this short i will say only one more word: HOPS!!!!!

I cannot believe this beer is 4 years old. Itís hop / malt / alcohol balance feels like it is just starting to meld together nicely. Huge, massive, powerful, potent, stinging hop bitterness precariously balancing itself upon a rich, syrupy, sweet malt base. Noticeable alcohol as well. This may be the best IPA I have ever had.

An amazing beer, insanely dry-hopped. Copper-color with a thick white head that settles fairly quickly. Woody aroma, sweet entry and bitter exit. A big, pleasurable treat.

As good as this IPA is, I like the regular IPA better.

whoe hops are there, malt quickly calms the hops. finnishes with a nice combnation of the maltiness and hops

wonderful ipa - I can tell itís aged well. plenty of hops - but you wonít cringe - just quite zippy. ample malt - almost syrupy - but not sweet. color is cloudy blonde. you can taste the alchohol just a bit - but it doesnít seem like 8.5%.
