This was my beer for the week on my last vegas trip! $5 at lee’s discount liquor. So many IBUs, not good for a first tasting beer. Really does ruin everything afterwards. Enough of this, and you’ll summersault down the aisleway of a bus!
From notes Aug 2016 - Definitely a beer I have wanted to try for a long time, lived up to its reputation. A great west coast IPA, plenty of hop aroma and flavour, well balanced bitterness with bready malt. The higher alcohol is kept in check well.

Beers book. Unfortunately there are no tasting notes, so I must endeavour to try this again. Tried when this was a guest beer at BrewDog Cardiff, many moons ago. Silentdogfart (17) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 18, 2017
Had this in cold climate and I think that added to the taste. Little bitter but enjoyed it

This is a really potent IPA with full blow on the aroma. It smells of hops and especially citrus fruits. From the start, the taste is full of hops with full pressure on citrus, pine needles and grape. It is a hop bomb that explodes in the mouth, but releases all American hops featuring grape, pine needles, apricots, yellow plums and pineapple. You really need to be quick to get all the taste, and I've probably only tracked a few. It's not an IPA for beginners, IBU is over 100, so if you do not like hops so stay away! Over the years, I have begun to find positivity in, especially American IPAs, so this aggressive, hoppyy IPA actually falls in good with me. The aftertaste is so dry that you almost feel like a glass of water in between. I'm sure the hoppy flavoiur first leaves my mouth for several days. But I think it's a fantastic tasteful IPA.

Blik gedeeld door Benzai en gedronken met Tomhendriksen. Goudgeel, licht troebel bier. Aroma is hoppig. Smaak is hoppig en kruidig. Weinig nasmaak. TomHendriksen (1123) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2017
Blik gedeeld door Benzai, geprobeerd met Inoven. Het is een licht troebel geel bier met een medium witte schuimkraag. Het heeft een hoppige geur. De smaak is scherp hoppig en vol. Mad Dog Martin (217) - - OCT 24, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2017 Can from BH. Nice, lively white, bubbly head on cloudy orange. Mild, fruity, citrus aroma. A serious double IPA, less fruity in the drinking. Quite a subtle little number. Bitterbill (2079) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 17, 2017
From Jun 2006
poured from 22oz bottle a medium gold with a large head of foam that dissipated slowly leaving a solid layer with good lacing.
The smell is a citrusy hop..a mix of lemon and grapefruit.
The taste has a huge hop flavour initially that is quite bitter but as I swish the brew in my mouth, there *is* a definite malt presence there that softens the hop attack a bit but yeah, make no mistake aboot it...this brew is a hop bomb first and foremost and that's a good thing. ;^) That's why I keep picking up this beer when I make my(in) frequent jaunts to Colorado.
Bottom line: A great DIPA that, imho, deserves the reputation that it has acquired. I Highly Recommend it! chessman (4) - - OCT 2, 2017 does not count
Got this in a variety pack-it stands out as perfect in a 12 pk of really great ales.the blend of pine and something else means i'll be purchasing this soon!
