Hazy orange with a 2-finger head, solid retention and very nice lace. Big hop aromas, featuring pineapple, grapefruit and pine.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours medium clear yellow with a thin white head that lingers. Intoxicating grapefruit hop aroma over mild carbonation. A bit boozy. Reasonable complexity.

Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours weak hazy golden with a huge creamy white head. Aroma of flowery, citrus and piney hops together with a light sweet malty base.Taste is moderate sweet, clean smooth mouthfeel, dry bitter mixture of fruity, citrus and orange, flowery and resiny hops, with a big minty bite at the lingering finish. Very good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow. Bottle from giant eagle. Nose is hop but without the acrid bite. Good color and weight. Smooth bodied and mild floral undertones don't overpower the hop burst. Hops are upfront but not too bitter - they are part of the mixture and not the whole damn thing. Usual citrus bit in there too. Very tasty and better than their old 2x ipa offering.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is all things hop. Really a super nice pungent bitter hop. Flavor is again a solid bitter hop. Lots of fruity melon and citrus acid lay on the tongue. Finish has a bit of sweetness but it’s quickly overpowered by a strong hop bitterness. Very clean tasting and pushes those alpha acids to the limit. Put this in your top 5 to seek out.
