Donít come crying to us if itís too much for you; this oneís for hopheads only! And get it now, cause when itís gone, itís gone. Boo hoo. 22.7 Plato 100.1 IBU

Beautiful amber/ orange color. HUGE pine and grapefruit nose. I could just sit there all day and smell this beer. Great mouth feel, and wonderful resinous fresh hop flavor. Possibly the best DIPA ever brewed.

Thick creamy head. Piney earthy fresh citrus and hop blast on the nose. Smooth flavor with a long hoppy finish. Has subtle caramel sweetness mixed with the flavor. Thick mouthfeel. Dark amber color.

22 oz bomber. Pours a beautiful orange color. The aroma is heavenly for all you hop heads like me, cant get enough. One finger off white head, nice lacing. Nice balance between sweet and hop flavors. When I die I have asked to be embalmed with this stuff. Awesome.

Great beer, 9.9 does the trick for me. I wish this was not a seasonal brew, because I would buy this over and over again. The 20.99 price tag for a sixer is a bit hard to swallow, but I easily forgot about that after the first 2

lucent copper, highly effervescent, lasting thick creamy head, silky full body with an oily linger.

aroma: very fresh creamy hops, doughy bread.

taste:
T1= crisp co2, sweet malt, hop flowers.
T2= very floral hops.
T3= slight pretzel, bitter hop oil.

sweet and bitter are balanced in perfect harmony. fresh floral hops are bursting out of here, so itís aptly named. really good, and nothing specific that i would change, but not as much "wow" factor that iíve been conditioned to expect out of this style (the eventual fate of any beer in a trendy style category).

Bomber poured into a tulip. Great smell up front. Pine and citrus. Bitter all the way through, but Iím getting a slight sweetness in there on some sips. Nice slick mouth feel that ends up coating your mouth. Really lingering aftertaste of citrus and pine. Super well done. Alcohol is really hidden here.

Bottle pours a nice orange/amber color. Has a nice white head. Laces the glass well as you drink it. Smell like I just walked into a forest with sappy pine trees surrounding me everywhere. Tastes like sweet caramel with a nice resiny hop aftertaste. One of my favorite IIPAís.

Bottle. Awesome aroma - pine, hops, some wet wood. Pours golden with white whispy head and nice lacing. Fantastic DIPA flavor, good malty backbone balancing the strong hops. Lingering palate - awesome beer.
