Pours a light copper color with a bit of an opaqueness, maybe some slight suspended yeast hanging out in the bottle. A smaller head than I expected, but great retention.
Smell is amazing. Very nice fresh hop smell. All of the citrus, grapefruit smells that I love in an IPA.
Taste is not as good as the smell, but very nice. Very strong hop taste, maybe a little too strong for me, but I am not a huge hophead. Good tastes, but not much of a balance.
Nice mouthfeel. Thin body, but goes down very smooth.
Drinkability is nice. I would recommend this beer to the hopheads of the world. Not one of the more balanced beers, but either are dogfishhead ipas and a lot of people love those. If you are a fan of Dogfish, give this one a shot instead.

We almost finished this growler before we realized that the brewer was from Madison, Ohio. The first home I owned was in madison, in 1980. I want to be more lenient, but a review is a review. It's really more of a pale ale with a little extra - a mild IPA. Still, very drinkable and generally it is tasty.
It is hoppy, and bitter, and at the same time smooth, like a pale.
It seems to not have enough extra carbination to make it to the end of the growler, but the first glasses had killer head - very nice.
I will seek out Cellar Rats in the future.

Review from notes taken about 6 hours ago at the brewery. Poured into a standard 16 oz. pint glass from the tap at a cost of $5. IBU's listed on the chalk board above the bar states 73 IBU's. There was not the usual "mini story" behind this beer as there is so many times for other Cellar Rats beers.
A A very robust, creamy and very light brown head with good lacing over an attractive and interesting hazy orange brown body that lets light through but is rather opaque. Good look. 4.0
S Nice, strong hop presence with some sweet malt almost totally eclipsed by the hops bitterness. This is appropriate to the style of course and I am starting to think that it might be considered an Imperial/Double IPA. This has the smell of a big, bold IPA if it is not indeed an IIPA. 4.0
T Wow! Bitter hop juice is highly concentrated here! I suppose hop heads might like this but it is far to bitter for me. Reminds me of the unwelcomed, over the top bitterness of SN Celebration Ale or possibly Great Lakes Nosferatu. I can still taste the repulsive bitterness of those beers. Possibly buried deep under the hops is some malt sweetness but really it is buried deep beneath a whole lot of hops juice bitterness. This, in my opinion, is an unbalanced IPA. 2.0
M Very harsh feel in this huge beer. The feel (along with the taste) really drove down the drinkability. 2.0
D I struggled to finish this beer due to the harsh bitterness. 2.0
Notes: Unfortunately I cannot recommend this beer since it is so darn harsh! I will stick to my Cellar Rats Field Rat Wheat which I purchased in a growler during my visit today.
