Really nice IPA. Smooth, hoppy and crisp with nice citrus and pine flavors. This is a dangerous brew at 9.4%! VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
750 ml 12/26/14 bottle shared with the boys.Pours a clear orangeish pale golden with a nice white head. Aroma is conifers, melon, sap and grapefruit. Flavor is melon, grapefruit, cedar, tropical fruit (mango, passionfruit). Finish is citrus and piney. Medium body, average carbonation. Great. andrewje41 (3882) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Alright, I’ll finally rate this. Still not 100% sure if these are all the same or not. But who cares. It’s good. Enjoy by 12/26/2014, so I’m a little late, but it’s still awesome. 22 Oz bottle. Pours a golden with a lot of head and lace. Big, thick and creamy body with a nice fresh hop citrus aroma. Great hops all around here. Awesome IPA. LBIguard (44) - - DEC 27, 2014
a very good fresh ipa.
Once opened you get citrus hops but it blows off quickly. Followed by a boozy musty smell. Reminds me of grapefruit pith.
Appearance is cloudy yellow with small white bubbles for a thin head
Taste is of grapefruit and cutsl citrus hops. Nice long well balanced finish

Consistently one of the best beers I have ever had. If you love a strong hops flavor in an IPA, this is the gold standard. Each batch seems to taste a little different, which makes each one fun to try. Overall, the taste is amazing.

Cannot believe it is 9.5% so smooth..............................

Sticky palate wrecking goodness. Citrus, pine, and everything else that comes out when way too many hops are added. The hops even stick to your mouth and throat in a hoppy way, similar to the burn of booze. Maybe the malt could be a bit cleaner and the beer a bit further fermented (the sugar is still there fighting to be tasted under the hops). Well into unmeasured IBU land, SoCal still knows how to deliver a class A hopbomb. slimspady (219) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
12.26.14. Tons of pine hops. A great balance with the malts. Not as hoppy as you would expect. Awesome. lawman834 (268) - Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2014
12.26.14 Batch - Heavy on the pine. Floral. Citrus peel. Particularly dry for the style but also not of the charts with IBU. Fairly balanced. darb85 (281) - Canton, Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Really good. Mild Hoppy nose. Smooth with an ever so slight malt bitter finish. Big fan
