Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Tree House tulip pint.

a; Clear amber with a finger thick offwhite head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Caramel malt and resin.

t; Caramel malt balanced by considerable hop resin. Bitterness lingers at the sides of the tongue. Bitterish finish.

m: Medium with great body and carbonation tingle.

o; Outstanding DIPA, somewhat reminiscent of Green Flash's Palate Wrecker in that the tasty caramel malt backbone is strong and beautifully balances the hi-powered hops (or vice-versa).
