4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
4.20.13 drank on 3/27/13 Pours a pale gold with a short-lived small white head with little to no lacing. Scent is a hops avalanche of pine and apricot-citrus with floral hints. Crisp hops flavor with a light, sticky body and good carbonation. A great hoppy double-IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 Re-rate. 2.14.15. Bomber. Clear gold with a foamy, off-white head that lasts and laces. Aromas grapefruit, mango, peach, pine and light spice. Flavor is the same. Medium bodied, crisp with a dry end. Easy to drink.

4/20. Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is pungent hops and not much else but your not really looking for anything else with this beer. Flavor is again a all hop blast. There are some malts in the backround to tighten things up. Tasty hop bomb of a beer. Here’s a beer gimmick that works.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 8.02.13 version (drank on 7.22.13).
Absolutely incredible aroma! Completely different animal than the 4.20. Very floral aroma with super balanced but sharp citrus flavor. Sweet and wet finish. Amazing wet hopped beer!
4.20.13 version (drank on 3.26.13). Light golden with thin white head. Aroma is very piney - not a lot of citrus hop. Taste is very straight and bitter...not much sweetness to balance. Almost has a sort of dry, burnt hop taste to it...or a charcoaley bite. Finishes a bit dry. Edit -- on tap this beer really opens up. Much more balanced - the pine flavor really smooths out and becomes more drinkable.

Some caramel, but mostly hop related aromas. Some floral and spruce, but mostly herbs and resin. Looks pretty, is soft on the palate, and is every bit as bitter as the aroma teases. Really good DIPA, it reminded me of Heady Topper. Thought the good Lord had dropped a bag on me. Is this liquid gargoyle ganj?

On draught at Cole’s. son of a BITCH this is good! Cloudy gold, solid lasting white head - aroma is lightly fruity, mostly massive resin and cannabis - fantastic! Taste is floral, resin and oddly like raw cinnamon - some alcohol. Average body, solid carbonation, longish dry crisp finish. Dangerous, so good.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2014 22 oz bottle. 4.20.13 version. Pungent citrus hop aroma, sweet, fruity and fresh. Medium body with a dry crisp feel. Fresh hop forward flavor with very light malt sweetness. Smooth and clean flavor that hides the alcohol well. Incredible fresh aroma, a must try. Update: 07.04.14 was slightly less enjoyable. A little more resinous perhaps. Probably 3.9 ish.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a clear golden orange color with a thick white head that leaves great lacing. Smell of pine, resin, citrus and floral. Tastes of all the same things with the citrus shining through the most. It’s extremely hoppy as well. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation and a bone dry finish. Overall this is one of the best double ipas I’ve tried gives pliney and 90 minute a run for their money. I’ll definitely be seeking this out again.

4/01/2013 batch on 3/25/2013. Bottle. Poured two even glasses of yellow orange with two finger head. Very piney citrus aroma. Fresh green hop taste with smooth undertones. Not overwhelming smack you in the face stuff. Enjoyable.
