Bottle, bb 08/26/13 (Iíve definitely come to this brewery, for its labels and bottle design, production and operational practices, and of course, good product!). Nose is gorgeous, huge, powerful citrus, juicy and a little dank with mild undercurrents of pine and perhaps oak. Orange, grapefruit, lychee. Pale, slightly gradient orange pour, transparent with a rocky off-white head. Soapy medium mouthfeel, crisp and spicy, touch of oiliness form the hops along with the resin; cleanses the tongue, light wood, balancing caramel and toasted malt. Super clean, alcohol well-integrated, lightly floral, medium bitterness is utterly clean. Dry but not punishing, with light non-saccharine sugar swipes from the hops, and a little earthy toffee when it comes time to buckle down. Supremely balanced for such a big boy. Hop notch, indeed!

Bottle. Pretty good IPA. Some citrus tastes up front. Not too bitter and has a mild aftertaste. Not a lot of malt flavor.

Grapefruit abounds. Sampled next to the Trader IPA from the same brewery. I wish they had the hop profile on their website. Very balanced for a heavy hitter.
