Yes I will say it ...... Better than HopSlam Probably the best new IPA i have had this year. Deep orange will very little head. Super aroma of citrus and honey with some hops mixed in. Unbelievably smooth and well balanced. Citrus with a great mouthfeel and just enough sweetness to balance out the higher ABV of 9.4%. Limited supply but I am on my quest to find more.

Had a 2 month old bottle from Amelia's Philly trip. Pours a dark gold. Half finger of creamy head. Getting a nice west coast nose with mango and grapefruit. Sweet aroma! Nice bitterness but is balanced with the malts. 4.25 grade. I'd like to try a fresher bottle one day.

Weird first sip. Last sip not as bad as first. Don't order again. profile - March 15, 2013
Smells like a skunk in a sweet pine forest. Light amber color that keeps a modest foamy head. Definitely a hop-forward beer where the hop dominates the caramel malt backbone. I don't notice the 9.4% alcohol, just the immense hops. The extreme hops reminds me of Avery's Maharaja...200 IBU's. I still like Lake Erie Monster better...

3-14-13 home This is a fantastic DIPA, as good if not better than Hopslam, as others have said. Very very impressed! Side note-FANTASTIC with Mexican (spicy) food! profile - March 9, 2013
I can't believe how good this stuff is. Better than hopslam? Very well could be. I was very surprised and pleased. Plan on stocking up on this stuff. Update 3/1. New name same great taste. profile - March 5, 2013
9.4% golden color, sweet and strong but not too much of either. Leaves slight warm mouthfeel. Hints at dfh 120 but easier to drink

Mild woody piney aroma and flavor. Medium body. Good malt flavor. Sweet with dry finish. Drank a bit cold. Alcohol does not dominate as expected.

Not what you'd expect from a double IPA. Very mellow and smooth, minor bitterness. Hoppiness is not overbearing at all.

Could be as good or better than bells hop slam. Can't believe I am saying that. This stuff is great!!!
