Wow! This beer is intense. In a good way.
Pours a caramel-tinged golden-amber with some light foam.
This has a beast of an aroma. It’s intensely piney with some orange citrus notes. Big and assertive, even at first sniff.
This has a sharp, bold bitterness upfront that’s full of hop intensity—piney, citrusy orange, and resiny with a long bitter finish. I found this beer much more of a palate wrecker than the eponymously named beer.
This seriously scratched my itch for a big, bad, over-the-top bitter DIPA. Fan-tas-tic! And with such great distribution. A great value too.
