Supernova, brewed for Willoughby Brewing Co's 15th anniversary, tapped 2/15/2013. 10.0% ABV and 105 IBUs.

Pale-orange elixir, served in a snifter for $5. Clear brew, no lacing or head.

Dank, piney hops. Alcohol vapors. That's about it.

Bitter from start to finish with a huge alcohol presence that lingers.

Medium body, slick, oily.

This brew is fairly one dimensional with quite a large, heavy alcohol load coming through. More of a triple IPA in taste, reminds me of Hoppin' Frog's Hop Dam, but not nearly in that league. Really hoped that they would have knocked one out with this, being an anniversary brew and all.
