Pour is a hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a decent pine hop resin. Flavor is much of the same. A decent hoppy resin with little or no malt backbone. Finish has a fleeting hop and maybe a little too much water. Maybe a bit thin but it will satisfy a hop crave.

Faint citrus smell not really heavy notes of any one thing which makes it interesting.pours orange to hazey straw color,minimal head. No big hop taste as another reviewer has noted but hides the alcohol.. mouthfeel has a fresh feeling. How yards accomplished such a smooth finish Iím not sure. A+

Bottle. Nose beautifully citric, heaviest grapefruit, juice and rind in balance, a little oil, and super inviting! Lightly hazy yellow-golden with a dense and creamy off-white head. Strong bitterness with medium hop sweetness, fullish body is also dense and creamy, all of that lovely grapefruit and lemon and adding on with some tropical edges: pineapple, passionfruit, mango. Light supportive caramel and a touch of fizzy crystal. Pine and smooth resin. Well-hidden etoh. Clean and awesome.

2nd beer after goose island Oktoberfest
Poured a copper orange minimum head. Smell was nice hoppy, citrusy, pine. On the sweet side. Not a big hop bomb nor the alcohol of a double ipa. Still a pretty good ipa

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, Orange/Amber, nice white head and leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of strong citrus fruit, hoppy with maybe a bit of malts. Taste is pretty much the same, but it does has some sweetness towards the end. Easy to drink, a very nice IPA.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into an American pint glass, color is orange-amber and slightly hazy, produces a clear white head that is thin but maintains itself well, plenty of lacing to go with it. The aroma is basic, piney with some malt and a little citrus. The taste is much the same, although the citrus is stronger and there are some hints of melon on the back end, itís also sweet but not overbearingly so. Medium-bodied and thinner than some of itís Imperial IPA counterparts, but it has the alcohol content to match them and it warms you all the way down. Overall, a good beer with a great name and a flavor that will linger on your palate.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
I was hoping for a nice smooth mellow ale but what I got was imperial double IPA, nearing strong ale attributes. Yes, big rototiller cannot be appreciated while it mows down every cell across your tongue and down yer throat. Rude nasty strong American ale BS, wew. Terribly on style and over the top. Warm on the way down. Getting dizzy near the end of the bottle, wew. Soapy viscous appearing mouth coating thing. There, you have; a big overly hoppy beer by all measures. Good job yards on this giant beer. Finish? Wonít be able to taste anything for a while.
