2011 vintage.

A: deep amber. decent off-white head

S: great aroma; citrus, pine, spices and huge hops.

T: way over the top. too strong of an alcohol taste that kills/overrides the expected (but non-existent) citrus, pine and hops flavors. Lingering bitter, bitter aftertaste.

M: low carbonation

O: i love DIPAs but this is not the beer for me.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - A very hazy, cloudy amber color. No clarity at all. Looks like medicine or something, haha. Not much head and a touch of sticky lace

A - Tons of great aroma. A hop heads dream. You can smell the huge cloud of citrus and bitter hops.

T - A huge malt backbone on this 3IPA, with a huge bitter kick at the end. A bit too boozy for me. Bitter aftertaste is kicking and doesn't stop!

M - Full bodied and low carbonation

O - A huge hop and alcohol bomb that will absolutlely wreck whatever you have left of your palate. I split a bottle with my brother, and 6 oz's is all I want. I will pass on buying it again.
