12oz bottle with a different label traded to me by some guy at dark lord day. he offered this bottle to me after i gave him a pour of something. details are a bit fuzzy. if this was you, thanks! drank from my sierra nevada hop tulip glass.
A- just as the bottle would indicate, there is a hop cone floating in here! pretty gimmicky, but pretty cool also. as far as i know this is the only beer out there like this. the beer itself pours a hazy glowing golden colored body with a small bright white head on top. the head has decent retention and leaves behind small marks of lacing.
S- very hoppy. lots of pine notes coming from my glass. a lesser amount of grapefruit, but it still makes itself known. an even lesser amount of tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango. some caramel malts sneak through towards the end of my whiff and try to offer up some sweetness and a little bit of balance. alcohol is pretty strong also.
T- the taste starts out with some of those sweet caramel malts that i could smell, but theyre no match for the hops this beer has. lots of pine and grapefruit. very fresh tasting. the pineapple i could smell comes through a little, but the mango seems to have vanished. the alcohol isnt as well hidden as i would have liked.
M- the body is full and syrupy. palate coating. the carbonation is very low. a nice level of bitterness. there is moderate warming from the alcohol.
O- too strong to have more than one of in a sitting. the hop cone in the bottle was a nice touch. this is an under appreciated DIPA from a brewery that no one really talks about. check it out if you get the chance.

Sorry Ralph, I couldn't wait any longer. Beer has a carmel hint with bitter hoppy after taste. The hop cone is a unique touch - adds to the bitterness.
