Into a tulip it goes, and it is pretty. A nice inch of head crowns a dark orange body. No lacing.
The nose of this is awesome! It is very piney, with a citrus underone. A considerable pale malt profile is there as well.
The taste is great, if this is truly an IPA. The hops provide that resiny character that IIPAs have, but you can't ever find in an IPA. This is the hoppiest IPA I have ever tasted.
I would consider this to be a IIPA because of the massive hops. Granted, this is the maltiest IIPA I have ever come across as well. The 9.2%ABV adds to the case for a IIPA classification.
The mouthfeel is medium in body, with an extended finish of malt and hops. The drinkability is hampered only by the fact that there is too much malt in this beer. No offense to anyone, but if the malt profile was reduced, this beer would remind me of Dreadnaught in all categories.
