Notes/Commercial Description:
It’s just a helluva shock. Something that gets the adrenalin pumping like a 400 volt shot in a copper bathtub has to be good for the soul. Join the hardcore elite, screw down the throttle and ride. Ride until your lungs bleed and your arms numb. Gun the fucker. Don’t pull back, or slow down until the crazy music starts. Then sit, stunned, wall-eyed, open mouthed, in the realization this mother will drill you with Panzer-like efficiency. And you’ll beg for more.

Very good, strong DIPA. Remarkably balanced for so many IBU's.

Bought a 4-Pack of bottles for $14.99.

A: Glowing amber poured with almost no head. Lacing not as heavy as expected.
A little bit of a letdown with the appearance.

S: What a unique nose for a DIPA. Quite floral and fruity with the alcohol apparent as well.
A little bit of tropical notes apparent as well.

T & M: Wow, what a hop bomb! Balance is not on top of this brews qualities.
I am a hop fan and this one delivers.

D: Drinkability not a strong trait of this brew. An interesting take but for the money
I don't think I'll be having this beer again.
