4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle poured into a short wine glass. Aroma is of pine and citrus. You can just smell the hops bursting out of this one. The color is a light orange and the head is medium to light. This beer is one of the best tasting IPA's I've ever had. Grapefruit and citrus with a long lasting and deliciously smooth palate afterwards. Love this

Nose of the beer contains rich floral and citrus aromas. In the glass is a vision of delightful opaque copper. Flavor starts with a touch of blonde grain. Then a large, long lasting, multidimensional voyage of hops with the best characteristic of flavor profiles they can impart. The beer is a hop lover’s dream. This is the Cadillac of IPAs.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2015 Pint in Head of Steam, Durham Uk. Classic IPA, this is how it really should be, although I would expect more from appearance but still great. Very nice start even better finish. The aroma is astonishing, melon, mango, full body perfectly balanced!

Good beer, although I am not a big hophead. The hop and malt aroma was great. The beer is crisp with lots of bitterness which lasts way after finishing the beer.

Stand on its own IPA with plenty of hoppy yuminness. Great tight thick head with strong hop aroma. Hardly any noticable malt taste but still not over the top in hoppy flavor. Second only to Great Divide Titan IPA

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a beautiful amber/orange with a medium white head. A huge aroma of citrusy hops hit the nose as you pour. What a beautiful IPA. Tastes of grapefruit, orange, and a perfect malt presence. A very balanced IPA, not too overwhelming, just right. One of my favorite IPA’s. Everyone must try this beer.

Pillows of foam poured from bomber into tumbler. Spicy, piney, and hoppy aromas follow through with the same type of taste. Plenty of bitter for the IPA fan. A smooth finish and lingering slickness result in a satisfying treat.

Good fecking Christ! What an IPA. What a beer. Definitely on my top 5 IPAs of all time. So much of everything right in this beer that I don't even know where to begin. It's a benchmark by which to judge all other IPAs.

Pours a cloudy golden-amber, almost similar to a wheat beer, with a nice 1/2’’ head. Hops are readily present in the aroma, along with slight hints of fruit. The hoppy flavor may appear overwhelming at first, but is nicely balance out with malt for a smooth, crisp finish. Full boddied, crisp, tasty, and well worth a try.
