Science will try to tell you that the tongue cannot detect more than 80 bittering units, but this hop centric imperial IPA will not leave you wanting more. So, have a seat and leave your worries to the Therapist.

Draft poured into a 16 oz. pint. Orange-amber color, though I was in a dimly lit bar. Small-to-medium amount of head. Strong floral presence in smell. Taste was reminiscent of Jasmine - floral notes with a bitter but smooth finish. Definite kick of alcohol towards the finish, and at 11% ABV no wonder! Overall, a very strong beer with powerful fruity flavors. If you have the means, I highly recommend it.

Got this from a trade super fresh and I was not disappointed.

A - Beautiful golden-orange color. Crystal clear with a bountiful white head and light lacing.

S - Strong hop fragrance with lots of resin, citrus, pine, and dank hops. Has some malt in the background but very fresh hop forward.

T - Awesome flavor with full resin punch and all of the big West-Coast DIPA hop flavors that I love. It is very fresh in flavor and has hoppy bitterness to accompany the sweeter malt background.

M - Moderate mouth-feel with moderate carbonation. Really perfectly balanced but there is significant bitterness that I enjoy but could be detracting.

Overall, a very delicious DIPA. I'm very glad that I got to try this brew. It is a pretty typical big West DIPA but this one really packs in the resin and is great. If you like Imperial IPAs this is a great one to try if you can get it! And this one really put me to bed so they aren't lying on the label.
