4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A good strong standar IPA, goes beyond the standard, pushes the envelope toward an Imperial with a good IBU rating and robust aroma.
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot), with notes of metal, butterscotch, and cotton candy. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic, slightly metallic.
What a strange, icky beer. There are some hops in the nose, yes, but it's quite candy-ish and artificial smelling...weird and off-putting. In the mouth more of the same...long lasting weird sugary sweetness, almost more like candy than beer, and the aftertaste is unpleasant. Watery and fizzy. A clumsy drain pour. tightslice (1532) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 27, 2018
On tap at Facebook in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is wet pinecones, moss, mostly rainy forest vibes. Taste is mild earth / herbal with a tangy bitter finish. A bit crisp and dry at the end (like bark). garzopeto (0) - - JAN 12, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2018 Muy buena IPA, de Four Peaks B.C. adecuado color, aroma lupuloso intenso, carbonatado justo, sabor y retrogusto muy nobles. ideal para maridaje con carnes rojas y mariscos. berkshirejohn (6827) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2018
16oz can from Park Plaza Deli, Prescott, AZ. A hazy pale amber pour with a dense cream coloured head - unusually pale for an IPA; big tropical fruit aroma; sharply resinous taste, stripping the taste buds immediately, but leaving some thin fruity malts and a mild burning snesation. Unpleasantly over hopped. George999 (487) - Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2017 From can - The pour is blond, clear, highly carbonated with a quickly thinning head that lingers. The aroma is bright, citrusy, hoppy and grass notes. The taste is initially sweet with a slight bitterness and hops. Not overly hoppy in the palate but does finish with a strong hop aroma. The mouthfeel is medium with a nice hopped finish. Overall the beer is a solid IPA.

I'm sure everyone here has heard the expression "right up the Wazoo", meaning "in large or excessive quantities, to disgusting excess". I was wondering if anyone knew exactly where "the Wazoo" actually is? mkel07 (6576) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2017
Bottle from Gilley's Saloon at Treasure Island Casino in Las Vegas. Hops from start to finish with this beer. While it is packed full of hops there is not the sharp bitterness that you would expect and it is not as chewy as I thought that it would be. Jsnyder9799 (5) - - OCT 23, 2017 does not count
At the Rusty Spur in Scottsdale AZ. Ice falling off the bottle as it was handed to me. Very smooth IPA.
