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

Pours light color with a thin head. Has nice lacing
Do not smell much...surprisingly.
Piney hop that finishes quite nicely. Back end bitter really sticks around and moves out nose. Piney taste really sticks around.
Overall a very balanced beer with an powerful hop that resonates for a while.

Another excellent IPA that completely belies its IBU of 100. It tastes more like 50! So well balanced and a fabulous kick at 9.1 ABV.

Purchased at Total Wine, Tampa, 1/2015. Translucent amber color with white head. Smells of pine, hops, resin, grapefruit, and a hint of candied strawberry/Now-and-Later taffy. Taste parallels much the same with robust piney hops and that sweet candy aftertaste that is almost reminiscent of bubble gum. A very rich and thick IPA that coats the mouth and throat with caramel malts and candied sweetness. I liken this beer very much to Sierra Nevada's Torpedo Extra, but a little thicker, stickier, and danker. Simply a world-class DIPA. 4.39/5

A - Poured a brilliantly clear light amber with a frothy 1.5 finger head. Very nice orange highlights in there as well, looks delicious. Not much lacing, however and didn't take long for the carbonation to die down and the beer to look a little lackluster.

S - Out of the can I got both a very dank resinous hop and a cereal malt character, with a similar aroma after the pour. Hops are piney and resinous and I get some good cereal notes from the malt, but the alcohol starts to overpower and to me ends up dominating the nose at first. This actually subsides as it warms... which is the opposite of what I would expect... bringing out more of the floral hop character and it smells oh so good.

T - Taste is very complex for a DIPA.. this isn't a one trick pony. The hops are still piney and resinous as expected from the name but also take on a citrusy and tea character. The malt is ever present with a bready sweetness to combat the bitter hops. The alcohol from the nose is much more subdued in the taste, and makes this very drinkable for the ABV. This finish isn't really that bitter and doesn't seem to linger much. I might be off base but at the moment I find this tastes similar to Stone's RuinTen.

M - definitely on the thicker, syrupy side, the carbonation tries to take a stand but it is straight up hop syrup. I think the mouthfeel limits me from having too many of these in one sitting which is a good thing.

O - Overall, this is a great DIPA, very good hop flavor profile. Also it's really a testament to IBUs being a subjective thing... sure its 100 IBUs but the malt is so sweet that it is no where near overly bitter and ends up being very well balanced.
