This was not an easy drinking brew. Very thick with a killer amount of hops. The alcohol is big too. I prefer their Ruination IPA to this variation. This reminded me of Dogfish Head 120 minute. Which is also not an easy drinking beer.

Pours a nice dark honey color with an off-white head. Aroma of fruit, pine, malt. Flavor matches aroma with addition of caramel and has a bitter hoppy finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. Pours a clear, bright orange with a creamy looking, off, white head that laces. Aroma has big, semi sweet notes of resin, pine, citrus, grapefruit, and some alcohol. Taste is a big bitter but with some sweetness. Huge, resin, citrus, pine, and grapefruit, with a bit of grainy/breadyness at the end. Very little alcohol taste but a bit of warmth. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Big resin in the mouth with a semi Fri finish. Overall probably the biggest IIPA I’ve ever had. Huge resin and pine flavours.

The aroma is hops, citrus, floral, grass and spruce. The color is a cloudy copper/orange with very little head fully diminishing and no lacing to speak of. The taste is heavy bitter. The body is medium to full, the texture creamy and a little slick, the carbonation lively and the finish a long bitter. You get hit with a biting citrus and a big bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of GT2. About 1.5 months old. Pours hazy reddish golden with a frothy beige head that leaves lots of spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny sweet and slightly fruity with grapefruit juice, pine needles, freshly cut grass, unripe mango, alcohol, orange zest and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, bitter and fruity with grapefruit juice, lots of pine needles, freshly cut grass, resinous wood, unripe mango and pineapple, moist soil, orange zest and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, slightly astringent, slightly oily bitter, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. finish is tiny sweet, bitter and tiny fruity with grapefruit juice, unripe mango, pine needles, freshly cut grass, orange zest and lemon zest. Seems to have more of a sugar base than a malt base which I guess is fine in this case. Enjoyable even considering the high ABV. Nice…

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity and floral hops. Flavor is sweet fruit, pine, and floral notes. Bitterness was a bit low. Not bad, but I was expecting something a little more memorable. Much less hoppy than the Ruination IPA.
