Received in a trade from jeffkrenner. Big thanks to him.

Appearance is very good. Large clumpy head forms off the aggressive pour with tons of lacing sticking to the glass. Glowing maroon/copper colored liquid with small amounts of sediment. For an IPA, this is a dark bastard.

Smell is good. Juicy citrus hops jump out and grab the nose. Pear, tangerine and ripe juicy plum. Nice.

Taste is very good. Once again, a large juicy hop profile with a lingering, grassy bitterness at the end. They blended the hops in this beer very well going with citrus and bittering creating a complex hop profile. Caramel malt is present but in the background, complementing the flavor nicely and yielding to the magnificent hop profile. Well done.

Mouthfeel is good. Slightly thin in the mouth due to below-average carbonation. However, the beer coats the tongue and cheeks nicely. Mouth-watering after every sip.

Drinkability is very good. If i had a keg of this, a few friends and i could easily put a nice dent in it.

Overall:
Awesome IPA that has an addicting flavor. One of the better IPA's out there. Highly recommended.
