Appearance - This is a beautiful, and I mean absolutely gorgeous copper in color with a serious head that showed great retention and left a nice film on the inside of my glass.
Smell - This smells dry-hopped but it doesn't indicate dry-hopping on the company website. Either way, the Three C's are huge here at the nose and balanced in a really fun way that provides a huge, resiny nose. The hops are just dripping here and smell fresh like they are still in the ground.
The malt is hard to find through the hops. It's there but certainly not balancing, which of course all the hopheads could care a less.
Taste - The raunchy hops just do not let up at the taste. They are rank, I mean as nasty as I've ever had them. I think The Chunks is the only beer I've had with a bigger raw hop flavor than this. If you like hops then drink this beer on your deathbed.
The malt, well, I can get a sense of it but the hops are just so big it's hard to find them. If you're looking for a well-balanced DIPA this is not it - lol.
Mouthfeel - This is medium-bodied with a nice, live yet muted carbonation and a monster hop aftertaste that will keep the hop belches going all night long.
Drinkability - Well if we're rating the beer on balance it's a 2, but if you want a big, gigantic hop experience this can't be beat on the open market.
