An ode to the sticky quintessence of hops that never forgoes balance. This piney, resinous Double IPA clocks in at over 100 IBUs.

The beer pours with some white head and good retention. The head also has good retention. The beer itself is a nice golden amber that is clear.

A strong hop smell with a caramel malt backbone but the hops seem to dominate.

The first taste are the hops with a caramel malt backbone that show up towards the end of the drink. The beer leaves a strong hop aftertaste.

Medium bodied but starts with a light feel. Biting carbonation.

A brilliant beer and worth every penny. My only gripe is that the beer sells out quickly and

Smells like opening a pack of hops on homebrew day. The alcohol is well-disguised and this is a very tasty 2xIPA. Odd due to the "Red Bull" can that it's packaged in, but this brew should definitely not be avoided. My local bottle shop was clearancing these 4 packs for 6.99 and should be ashamed of themselves. Educate the local drinkers instead of scratching your heads. This stuff is amazing...but, I will drink it and laugh at the locals for their sad ignorance of brilliance.

Kinda feel the same way with my homebrew. Go figure.

Box says best before 7 June 2013. Can 1 of the 4-pack. Never seen a beer can like this; looks like Red Bull.

Pours a medium golden color, quite clear. A fair amount of visible carbonation. One finger of foamy off-white head. Good retention and fantastic lacing.

Smell is ambiguously hoppy, with a really strong malt base. Piney and earthy. Big slightly sweet malt base; definitely a malt-heavy IPA.

Taste is also ambiguously hoppy, heavy on the bitter and heavy on the malts. Sweeter than average, with a really strong malt presence that dominates the flavor. Then the bitter comes on big, but doesn't bring much more with it.

Medium-bodied, a little heavier than the average DIPA, with that great sticky feel. Medium-low carbonation, just fine.

This is a fine DIPA, but nothing special. Heavy on the hops, but it really needs more in the nose in order to shine. Balance is pretty good, but there's nothing notable about it. Lots of bitter, lots of sweet buoyant malts, but no flavor that I can really latch onto.

A - orangish copper with a thin, white head

S - pine, citrus, cake batter, bread

T - bread, yeast, pine, citrus, alcohol

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This was a nice beer with a very nice, sweet malt character that I'm a sucker for as well as a potent, intense hop character. I enjoyed this one. The alcohol was a tad over the top at times, but it didn't really detract from the flavor or the drinkability. It's definitely worth a try.
