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.

Paired this with Chipotle Chicken and grilled vegetables and it was quite nice. Poured out a somewhat hazy amber color with a hint of orange. The intense citrus and pine aroma were a clear indication that this one could stand up to spicy food. The initial flavor was citrus hops that gave way to toffee like malt sweetness on the back of my tongue. Carbonation was just right. There is absolutely no "hotness" from the 9.2% ABV even as the beer warms. Warning - this one could sneak up on you!

I like the show "Brew Dogs" and when I spotted this at my Liquor Barn I had to try it. While I think there are better DIPA's available to me (Dogfish Head 90 minute comes to mind), I am glad I gave this one a try.
