Pours clear bronze with orange blaze. Massive pillowy off-white head. Classic in-your-face West Coast hop aroma. Huge citrus and pine. Taste follows suit. Aggressively hopped. Bitter. Fruity. Pine cone. Sweet malt backbone. Very true to style.

Akin th the Palate Wrecker...just completely bitter. Too aggressive for me but worthwhile for you high IBU folk.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear good with moderate head. Aromas of toffee, rubber, pink grapefruit, and candy. Sharp bitter flavors of orange peel, graperfruit, and resin. Maybe there is some malts in the background...

Has a little bit of grapefruit flavor, but the beer is all bitterness. Like the bottle proclaims, the bitter flavor dominates your mouth a while after you drink it. I admire the beer, but I also have to admit it’s a bit much for me.

Bottle: orange color with an off-white head. Very "bitter" and hoppy aroma, grapefruit, citrus peel and resin. Flavor is malty, light sweet with candy notes followed by full hop notes with resin, pine and few citrus. Quite bitter.

12 fl oz bottle sample via Piscator34. Pours a moderately hazy yellow with a medium size off-white head. Aromas are tropical fruit, some earthy/grassy notes, and a little funk. Tastes are assertive resiny bitterness, and then some more assertive resiny bitterness, followed by...well you get the point. Moderately creamy mouthfeel, dry astringent bitterness from start to finish. A little much for my tastes.

A beautiful beer. All that is right with a DIPA. Hops and malt blended to perfection.

Very nice ipa. Has a high ibu count but doesn't taste like it. Surprising smooth and easy to drink. If it was so filling i could easily overdo it with this beer

Strange to be challenged with a taste that first impression I did not like only to be won over by its intensity and uniqueness. Pungent. Complex. Surprising. Pushing my envelope from bitterness standpoint but still judge as a buy again favorite

pours a golden straw with thin fine head. lacing is nice and lasting. aromas or lots of hops with some pine. taste is hops right away, balance is nice and finish is pine and floral/bitter hops. Mouthfeel is nice and full but not too heavy, not too much carboniation. Balance is key here, awesome ipa here. Near perfect but could be perfect with more complex hops.
