This is the third DPI/IPA I've reviewed. The bizillionith I've tried. I've come over to the dark side.

I'll keep it short. Appearance, smell, and mouth feel hit the profile bench mark. The balance between and upfront presence of malt, yes malt, fruitiness and of course hop is spot on. Complements spicy and hot foods well. Some of the hop bombs I've tasted were all about the bitter which to me is like ghost chili pepper sauce on a piece of cardboard.

I've been blessed by the beer gods to have tried most of the heavy hitters available to me. The best were on tap which I find to be an unfair comparison. In a bottle this stands tall and at $14.00 for a 12 pack - hell yeah it's in my fridge. Among many others but not all at once; I need another fridge.
