Bought this along with Hoptimum, this was far superior. Not saying Hoptimum was bad but this was very very good.

Pretty brash and edgy. I can picture this being hot shit in 2009. This is trying badly to be the most bitter beer on the block, which is not the modern way of thinking about IPA. Meh.

12oz bottle to tulip. Pours clouded gold, heavy sediment, sticky white froth head. Aroma of pine sap, caramel, fig, bread, strawberry. Taste of same with herbal spice, bitter grapefruit and woodiness. Very bitter but decently balanced. Mod carb, med mouthfeel. Finish is acidic bitter and a bit chalky.

ajnepple (6121) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2016
12 oz single bottle from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Light hazy orange appearance with a lacy, lingering beige head. Aroma of musty hops, toasted malt, light citrus zest and light yeast. Similar flavor, musty and moderately bitter with mild sweetness. Medium to full body with a lingering resinous hop finish. Unfortunately there is no freshness date and this is most likely a Shelf Turd.

Lemon and other citrus fruits, sweet grain malts, caramel. Hazy, dark gold, small, creamy, white head. Light bitter. Bitterness intensifies, bitter orange, grapefruit, resin and pine, soft carbonation, very bitter and dry finish. Very nice IIPA, nice citrus fruits and sweet malts throughout. Bottle at The Old Fashioned, Madison, WI.

muzzlehatch (4937) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2016
8 ounce draught snifter at Mitchells Hilltop, Stevens Point WI, August 2nd. Pours a cloudy, not-quite-opaque bright orange, with a bit of wispy head that lasts...citrus (orange and grapefruit) dominates the nose, with a touch of pine resin and a bit of burnt/smoky woodiness...drier than most to the tongue, though some noticeable fruity sweetness sets in around the middle...reasonably strong bitterness throughout, light acidity, generally well-balanced though theres a bit too much of that woody dryness on the palate, and its just a might thin and attenuated. Solid enough but certainly nothing special to my tastes.

BeerInHeaven (427) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2016
pours a slightly murky amber orange with a medium off white head. Outstanding aroma of tropical floral, pineapple, tangerine citrus. Juicy mouth feel. Big citrus taste. Grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple. The 108 IBUs are muted at first, but creep in and take over, but still with a grapefruit citrus twang. Im a hop bomb lover, and this one is right in my wheelhouse! Love it!
