3.95/5 rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
L= 4.0 Dark, chunky brown, rotten orange color with 2 finger head that also had bits and chunks in it. Wow
S= 4.5 Huge nose of spicy esters. This is one of the biggest smells I've ever gotten from a dipa. It almost has a candy sweet tart smells after the spicy ester. Really interesting.
T= 4.0 You get a nice subtle upfront sweetness and then bam! You get side balled by huge ester bitterness. It is a very unbalanced beer but it's grows on you. There is tartness before the finish that resembles that of a cry baby or a sweet tart. It taste literally like carbonated hop water. I am going to be sweaty out alpha acid for the remainder of the week.
F= 3.5 It feels biting and stinging on the tongue.
D= 3.5 (non-session) It's interesting that they went for it. It's in interesting beer and you can tell that the beer is over-saturated with hops. If someone has this beer you need to try it. If you see it in the store, you need to buy it. It's not well balanced or even balanced at all, but it's interesting.
