12 oz bottle, thanks Ryan. Almost unnoticeably hazy amber; very large white, frothy, rocky head dissipates into a sparse covering and a medium to large ring; heavy lacing. Aroma is warm and toasty with sweet malt, grapefruit, pine sap, and barely a hint of caramel. First taste makes me think this is going to be another unbalanced hop bomb, but over time this thing really smooths out; more pine and citrus here but it gets more drinkable after sitting a bit; very lengthy orange/pine finish with light caramel. Really impressed with the body; heavy carbonation but it’s full and smooth and almost creamy; light stickiness; does thin out a bit after sitting out once the carbonation bleeds out. The 100/100 score on this one suggests a great number of raters are on drugs, but this is outstanding and probably really does deserve 99th-100th percentile in the APA category. (But 100 overall? Come on...) Shame this is so hard to get; guess I’ll have to live with Alpha King...

12 oz Bottle. Appearance is slightly hazy, orange color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is heavy citrus with notes of orange sweetness, grapefruit, and mango. Taste is well-balanced with nice moderate sweetness overlaid with a smooth citra hop bitterness. Some resinous piney notes also present. Palate is light- to medium-bodied, slightly thin texture, light but lively carbonation, and a dry finish. I was a little disappointed at first but the complexity came out as the beer warmed up. Well-crafted brew.

Draft at Miller’s Pub. Aroma is piney hops. Light bodied, thin hollow palate. Sharp piney and floral hops on the finish. Highly carbonated. Drinks like a SIPA.

Poured from a six pack of bottles, nice looking glass of beer. Taste was tropical fruit, some fresh hops, very little bitter, went down smooth and quickly. Could have been stronger for the price.

thebeertourist (5009) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2015
On tap at Tap-House Munich. Hazy, dirty golden with a healthy offwhite foam. Hoppy passion fruit aroma. Exotic fruits hop bitterness, dwarfing the hints of toffee. No compromise hop bitterness!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Aroma was almost all citrus. Appearance orange. Taste was a very well balanced citrus without the harsh bitterness you would expect for this style. Outstanding IPA.

Eminently drinkable considering the octane. Well balanced was the first thought that came to mind, hops, citrus in the grapefruit direction. Not overly hopped like some Three Floyds manifestations. The aroma did not register with me as much as other reviewers, perhaps they had it on draught.

Wow this is awesome, it’s no wonder it’s so sought after. Big hoppy aroma and the taste follows, if you were to drink this blind you would think IPA. Citrus and piney flavors all the way through and they hang out long after the finish.
