Amazing Amarillo hop flavor and bitterness. Such a delightful hop flavor. Brutal, but an enjoyable brutality.

Poured 12 oz bottle into std pint glass. Slightly hazy gold color. Decent head with medium retention. Nice persistent lacing. The aroma was a bit subtle and underwhelming. The flavor was nicely balanced with grassy, earthy hops and with a bit of astringent bitterness on the back end. Overall nice round mouthfeel. All-in-all, a very nice beer. Some of the more prominent IPAs have a more forward aroma and a little less bitterness on the back end but I would happily drink this any time.

my first review ever....

22 oz bottle given to me by Walls on 12/24.
No date on the bottle. Consumed on 12/24.
Into the Duvel.

L: Orange-ish. Small foamy head. If it doesn't look like a glass o' soda pop, then I don't think there's anything wrong with the look.

S: Smells sweet, malty. As it warmed it smelled like marshmallows. And fruit. In a good way. Kinda like that bag of flavored marshmallows you got once. Yum. Not smelling ipa-ish tho.

T: Taste is bitter. Yes, she's an ipa. Lemon peel (ah, yes, yellow snow), watermelon, pine. Just enough sweetness. Very unique.

M: Mouthfeel was fine. What?

O: Out of the small handful of ipa's I've had, this is one of the best. Dy-no-mite. I'll be enjoying this one again soon.

Very cloudy brownish yellow with some floaties. The maltiness is solid and the body is a bit heartier than most standard IPAs. The hop bitterness is quite potent as well.

The name is terribly unappetizing but the beer itself is a very well crafted offering.
