Rock solid IIPA. Has everything you?d expect - light, slightly creamy head, overflowing bright, citrus hops, clean finish with a slight lingering malt. That said - not the best in class, but certainly one of them. I wouldn?t say I was disappointed - slightly underwhelmed after all the hype. profile - June 28, 2018
Lots of anticipation, minor disappointment Not much of a wow factor but a solid beer none he less Had at port pizza in San Diego June 18 profile - March 6, 2018
Bubbly tangy IPA that was very tasty and I was super happy my brother-in-law went the extra mile to find me some. He also had an older one which really held up well. I know IPAs are best when fresh but the older one was great too. Very nice beer drinking experience! I highly recommend it! profile - December 7, 2017
Awesome beer but it?s a little to balanced for 5 stars. I like my IPA?s with a bit more bite. I?ll drink it when I find it on tap.

Looking forward to this beer for awhile. It didn't disappoint. Excellent. Though I think I prefer WW Pernicious.

Worth the wait...but Pernicious and Scofflaw Basement are better....

7/24/17 - Newport Brewery. Draft into pint glass. Pours a brilliant gold, light carbonation, small head and no retention. but lacing is very good. Aroma is piney hops and heavy citrus, tropical and resinous. Taste is less bitter than I expected for a DIPA. Hoppy, grapefruit and slight sweetness. Good IPA, worthy of it world class rating.

Overrated. Not sayings it's bad but average in my opinion.

Perfect. The combination of hops is excellent with a great flavor and just the right bitterness. But what separates this beer is the smooth balanced malty background. Been waiting to try this for a while, and it certainly didn't disappoint.
