Standard DIPA appearance, with an orange-amber colored clear body, one finger thick head, and lots of streamers. Why mess with success, right? The smell was a little subdued, as the hops didn't hit me in the face. I could detect some grapefruit, and mandarin orange smells, as well as a bit of fresh cut hay. The taste was also not very hoppy to me. There was a herbal bitterness, and a touch of spice, but mid palette and finish was dominated by honey like malt. The sweetness overpowered the hops, but it was not a dark fruit like sweetness approaching barleywine character, but rather a sugary, syrupy taste, making this an odd DIPA. It did feel good and soft in the mouth, and the finish was clean. It was a different take on the style for sure. The closest similar beer I can think of is the Green Flash Green Bullet.

On tap at the 2014 Secret Stash Bash (Atlanta).

)n tap at the 2014 Secret Stash Bash (Atlanta).
Pours deep and dark amber. Modest but durable head.

Aroma: Interesting aroma is hoppy, as expected, but has an unusual character that is floral and herbal but otherwise rather hard to describe.

Flavor is more earthy, with mild to moderate bitterness.

Medium body and carbonation.

O: for hop heads.

Serving type: on-tap
