look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

12.7oz. corked and caged bottle poured into a tulip. 14/1/12 printed on the cork.

(A)- Pours a dark dark mahogany color that produced a good tan foamy head that coated the sides of the glass with lacing as it dissipated. One of the darkest colored DIPAs I have ever seen.

(S)- A big piney dry blast of resin-like lemon with a big malty background of caramel-ish lemon.

(T)- Same as the smell. A huge malty background of caramel and toffee with a lemon citrus that flows into a full bodied dry bitterness.

(M)- A good carbonation level. One of the biggest malt profiles of any DIPA I have ever experienced. At the same time, this is so heavily hopped that the bitterness and citrus of lemon and pine is almost chewy when combined with the malt. This almost has to have that big malt profile, otherwise this would taste burnt.

(D)- Definitely an interesting take on the style. Malty as hell, but also hoppy as hell. I am glad to have tried this, but for the $12 price tag for a mere 12.7oz. of beer, I would much rather grab a good six or four pack of something else in the style. Good though. Becomes very cloying the more I have of it.

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

One badass beer.

Appearance: Nice, a bit hazy amber in colour with a yellowish, thick head that lasted very long.

Aroma: Most double IPA's I've tasted had a very sweet or alcohol aroma, but not this one. Amazing hoppy, citrusy aroma from the bottle and even better from the glass. Very intense.

Taste: Extreme hoppy bitterness, little bit of caramel, resin and earthy flavours. Tons of citrus. No alcohol aftertaste, just how I like it.

Mouthfeel: soft carbonation, medium to high bodied.

Overall: Never have I tasted an IIPA so amazingly good. Best IIPA I've ever had and probably one of the best beers I've had so far.

Enjoyed from a teku glass.
