Ugh, this beer just keeps hitting me while I'm down...

I mistakenly bought this at the bottle shop the other day, and dislike the idea of returning alcohol. My fault for not being more careful about what I was looking at, etc. The price is a rip off at $6.99 a single 12oz bottle. Then it's a huge disappointment of a beer to try and drink.

A - Pours very dark for a DIPA - an oxidized copper color - and I was getting plops of sediment entering my glass before the bottle was even half empty. A short but firm grayish-white head rises and very fine bubbles are always in supply around the edges of the glass.

S - At once overwhelming, even from a distance. Sweetness is pervasive and annoying. Like Hopslam amped up a few notches. Faint citrus rind is there, but is bowled over by pine and other vegetable matter. Then the aroma finishes with a slap in the face of booze.

T - Hoppy but not all that bitter. It's just boozy - unpleasantly so. The taste is more of a mouthfeel than anything. Not good.

M - Hot. The carbonation is prickly... couple this with extreme booziness and the beer literally stings my tongue and lips. Sweet as hell, too.

O - What a waste of money, very disappointing. A great example that just because a beer is a collaboration doesn't mean it will equal success.

On Draft at Meddlesome Moth. Served in a tulip glass.

A- Copper. Little head that dissapeared quickly. Very little lacing. Clear as day

S - I'm getting caramel and citrus

T - Candied sugar and bitterness blend well

M - Smotth. No alcohol burn

This tasted better the more it warmed up. I'd definitely let it sit a bit before drinking.

Serving type: on-tap
