    Appearance - Deep rich color. A slightly red hue, not something I would expect from an IPA. Very clear with a two finger head that dissipates quickly and laces well throughout the glass.
    Aroma - floral and pine. As strong as you'd expect from a 2xIPA.
    Taste - Extremely hoppy up front (duh). Finishes with a strong malt backbone with a very slight bitterness left on the tongue.
    Mouthfeel - medium carbonation with a creamy but not really thick finish.
    Overall - Epicness in a bottle. At 9.2% this is dangerous good.

  • This is a great beer. I wish it was a regular offering.

    I was in OH over the weekend and got a chance to drink this. Brought a couple of 4 packs home I liked it so much. Good find .
