I have to review this one now while the taste still lingers in my mouth. This beer poured a very dark brownish color with purple highlights and a frothy tan head. The aroma was difficult to detect because of the coldness of the beer and smokiness of the place but I did get some pine and floral hoppiness on the smell. The taste wasn't the overly bitter, out of whack hoppiness I was half expecting considering the name. This beer simply amazed me! First it was very creamy which is odd for a 10% beer. Second it was quite thick and syruppy. Lastly it was extremely smooth and easy to drink (way too easy to drink). The balance was remarkable. Lots of sweet, syruppy maple and caramel at first but then the hoppiness kicks in. More flavor from the hops than bitterness but it was still bitter. This wasn't the most complex beer I have had but that might have been because of the coldness of the beer and the fact I drank it too fast to let it warm. This was liquid candy for any hop head or malt head or anybody who appreciates good beer. The best DIPA I have had to date!

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to nothing quickly. It is an amber copper color with good clarity and vision of slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Floral, grassy, pungent, citrus, onion, garlic, booze, and caramel.
Taste: Same as above. Burning tingly boozy sensation going down. Even after warming up, it's still the same.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, low carbonation, tingly bitterness, and real boozy. It's definitely a sipper.
Overall: It's been a while, but still tasty. Should have held on to this one a bit longer.
Serving type: bottle
