Draft. Pours medium clear yellow with a thin white head that lingers. Intoxicating grapefruit hop aroma over mild carbonation. A bit boozy. Reasonable complexity.

12 ounce bottle pours a light yellow color with a white head that lasts quite a long Time nice lacing. Mostly clear with a slight bit of haze. Pine and floral notes of aroma in this IPA. Medium carbonation very very nice hops to malt balance incredibly smooth for an Imperial IPA.

Pours a cloudy gold. Nice nose of pine/citrus. Taste of grapefruit, slowly changing to hoppy goodness with a great bitter finish. Well structured and excellent beer.

Draught at Akkurat.
Pours hazy golden with a white head.
Quite big brew, bitter without being over the top bitter, lots of nice citrus hops.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured brighter golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up bright citrus zest and lesser medicinal notes, with sweet caramel and a kiss of honey supporting. The flavor found bitter grapefruit and peppery hops throughout, with sweet malt supporting.. spicy and a bit hot on the finish. Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation.. it was kind of hot, but it grew on me.

Bottle pour - orange-gold body with a medium whitish head that recedes a bit more quickly than others in style as of recent. Aroma is quite enticing - can definitely note the Citra working here, and there is a good sweet malt backbone evident - slightly grainy, there is also a bit if piney hops to balance it out - great nose. Flavor is quite good as well - assertive hops get occasionally checked by the malts, but the hops are the show here - the piney hops show a bit more on the tongue, but there is some puckering fruit in here as well. Mouthfeel is good - overall a nice rendition of a wonderful style.
