$6.99 for a 22oz bottle @ BevCo.
Brewed with Pale, C-80, Melanoidin, Acidulated, and Carapils malts. Hopped with Columbus, Simcoe, Amarillo, and Centennial.
9.0% ABV, 99 IBU, 265 KCal

Pours out to a slightly hazy peach, forming a tall, rocky and very creamy light yellow head with beautiful texture, lacing, and amazing retention. Moderate carbonation, about 2.5 carbs. The aroma is really nice with an expert balance between the notes of what I call the 4 major American hop groups...dank/cat pee (Simcoe), pine (Columbus), mango/fruity (Centennial), and skunky (Amarillo) hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and soft with a medium thick body. The taste is great as well...the malts really shine with a wonderfully balanced substantial husky sweet potato backbone for all the hops to sit on. The finish is moderately dry, but not astringent. The pine really comes out toward the finish and the skunk is in the aftertaste. Great mango note in the middle. No off-flavors or aromas.

This is a really interesting beer. I haven't had an IPA or DIPA that used a ton of hops where you could get all the notes I mentioned above. Many of them are way to bitter, so this is a pleasant surprise. I could see myself trying to clone this bad boy. An excellent DIPA.
