Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

22 oz bottle received as a trade extra.

Appearance: Rich gold with a touch of amber in the deeper parts of the glass. Very attractive. Little head, dissipates quickly, to be expected on a beer of this style with this abv.

Smell: Tropics, citrus, some grass in there. This beer truly has a bouquet.

Taste: Holy cow. Bitter chased with a great orange juice sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Excellent. Smoother than Simtra, meatier than Sculpin.

Overall: Highly under-rated beer. This is a more drinkable version of Simtra, which is one of my all-time favorites. Reminds me of Permanent Funeral if it were brewed by Russian River- lots of West Coast bitterness married to oranges, the malt only exists to make this beer feel good. I'll drink this any day.

A: perfectly transparent amber color. White head that lasts a while.

S: floral and very hoppy. A little citrus in there too.

T: citrusy and very hoppy. Very good malt taste too.

M: great smooth finish.

O: reminds me of Pliny the elder. A little hoppier and and a little less smooth, but I feel this is a great dipa.

I've had this beer on tap locally here in Sacramento, and I regularly get it in bottles. It's a heavy Imperial IPA with a solid citrusy flavor, which is a tribute to the vast array of citrus grown in the region. It's got low carbonation, so there's no bite, and despite clocking in at 11% ABV it's not boozy at all. It pours clear, and is almost amber in color. It's smooth but mouthfeel is almost light for such a powerhouse of flavor. Very complex notes throughout, from start to finish. And when you're done, you'll realize you just got back-doored by The Rapist.
