Ok, I understand this is not your every day IIPA. If you're looking for an Enjoy By clone, walk on by. This is a TRIPLE IPA, which I believe is deserving of it's own category. The malt bill is heavy duty, the hops in equal proportion. Beers of this ilk, cross the bridge between American Barleywine and DIPA, and that's exactly where you will find Devil Dancer. Fruity, tangy, cirtrusy hoppy, malty....yes you've got all of theseys. Oops, I'm stuck. Not a hint of alcohol while weighing in at 12% ABV with 112 IBUs. This beer is an EXPERIENCE, not just another DIPA. Next year, when you buy your four pack, drink two and let another two sit for 4-5 months. You'll be rewarded I can assure you....
