Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.

A: Hazy, light amber color with lopsided off-white foam residue. Scant lacing remains on the glass and suspended sediment is heavy to the point of being distracting.

S: Light caramel and a trace of herbaceous and piney hops make for a smell that is unremarkable, considering the style, yet inoffensive. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins off-dry, with early artificial pine hop aromatics, muted butterscotch, and husky crystal malt that is backed by mild acidity. Flavors turn earthy in the middle, intensely English in the qualities presented by the hops, but a bit reckless. Columbus hop flavors become aggressive in the finish--very bitter with medicinal overtones that are not helped either by some late booziness that is present.

M: Medium viscosity, while it is astringent on the palate it stops short of disaster, with low carbonation.

D/O: Another kitchen-sink DIPA that embraces a more-must-be-better philosophy but comes across as muddled at best. Lingering astringent bitterness wrecks the palate, but no payoff is provided.
