Bomber from Hayduke. Clear and golden with active carbonation and a fluffy white head. I put my nose to it and grab a face full of citrus hops. This screams west coast IPA. Lemon, oranges, mangoes. Lesser caramel. Flavors resemble the flavor with grapefruit and more malts. Bitterness is certainly noticeable and tends to grow. Cracker notes catch me by surprise. Throw some pine into the mix. The feel is somehow oily and smooth. This beer seems to border on being out of control with malts trying to hold a rebellion. However, the hops stomp that down perfectly and all is well in Apocalypse land.
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2018 Bottle from Sterk Amsterdam, unfortunately rather old. Aroma is fruity hops, strong citrus, orange, biscuity malt, peach, tropical notes, some pine. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a bitter finish. Body is medium. It's truly stunning how hoppy this one is in a rather unfresh condition, giving an extra .1 to compensate because it will surely be better from tap. Supernova2016 (33) - - JAN 18, 2018

On tap at Baileys Taproom, Portland, Oregon. Has a slightly hazy amber colour with a small off-white head. Fruity aroma of dry hay, grapefruit, grass, hops and pine. More grassy hops in the flavour with grapefruit in the background. Dry ending with pine and hay. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a medium to heavy bitterness. A hoppy and solid IPA. obxdude10 (2392) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2017
Excellent IPA on draft at Chammps in Collegeville. The beer pours a very dark golden color with a light amber hue. The nose is quite hoppy with lots of fruit and citrus notes. The flavors follow suit, with plenty of hops that provide notes of fruit, citrus and pine. The finish is quite bitter and spicy. Chudwick (3441) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - DEC 1, 2017
Pint at Mellow Mushroom - nose is citrus and resin. Sip adds long bitter finish. Pretty good. Floral notes.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2017 Pretty typical IPA. Nothing surprising here. But definitely not disappointed in my choice! Block (3222) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2017

Found this one at a blazers game. Riiiiiip city. Solid IPA but disappointed it's owned by InBev now Haslinger (1000) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2017
drunk from a plastic glass at REI's pray for snow event. I don't like overly hoppy IPAs but this one was pretty mild. Very drinkable. Wet hops abound
