4.33/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Looks quite crisp, great clarity, active pilsner type carbonation with a two finger puffy white head. Looks like soap suds.

Smell is piney, citrus like hop aroma. Very clean bitter bite grapefruit with even a hint of buttery richness.

First sip.. Wow, the smell of this beer is deceiving. You get a malty sweetness at first the swings over the top of your palate and then BAM!! The bitterness hits you, sour bitter grapefruit, pine, floral medicinal flavors linger as the brew goes down. This is a tongue hop shredder! Very pronounced bitters and Per stones site is well over 100IBU's. This beer is for you if your a hop head. Very good stuff.

Mouthful well is like most DIPA the bitterness lingers what seems like forever. This is defiantly a great sipping IPA. Probably paired well will some strong flavor cheese and meats. Creamy brew to say the least.

Overall great DIPA, I love hoppy beers and at one time that’s all i bought was hopped out outrages brews. I’ve gone away from that and its nice to know i can still get down with the hoped crazed beer geets. This beer is great highly recommended but a bit over priced. 7.99 for a 22 and 14.99 for a six pack. Try out at least cause if you like hoppy beers you'll love this one.
