A thick and barely translucent orange-red brew, appropriately served in a snifter, is crowned by a pale orange-tinted head one finger tall. It's extremely creamy with great stick to the walls and lots of it, chunky at first and densely patchy below.
This is a hoppy brew with an interesting and varied profile, lots going on here in ways that wouldn't necessarily seem to work entirely but do. It's raw initially, pithy to a point with an earthiness that runs all the way through, more prominently at first before giving way to other elements. Pine comes in strongly, giving it more rawness, and there's a note that I could only describe as cheesecloth, but in a good way, along with some tobacco.
In the flavor, some of the "cheesier" notes are subdued, and the tobacco leaf is part of the overall leafier profile. It's got big, resinous and oily hops of a mostly piney, green, earthy and, again, raw but refined nature even as a bit of honey sweetness evens, balances, and adds depth to it. A peppery bite nips at the tongue underneath.
This medium-bodied beer is first crisp, then a smoothness comes in alongside and they both ride together into a nice finish. Overall, it's very juicy on the palate. (1,203 characters)

On tap at Ray's Place. Hop aroma. A light colour, a decent hop flavour. Decent drinkability, and I would think intended. About where your average DIPA is. Carbonation about right. Waka Waka Waka name is intended to signal complexity. Was not getting that nor tropical fruit. (274 characters)
