Hahahaha, I get it...6.66%...Diabolical...priceless.
Poured from an 11.5 ounce bottle into a beer mug.
Appearance: Beer is a light-copper color with almost no carbonation visible whatsoever. Head is super-foamy, leaving very light wispy lacing as it recedes. Dimpled all over. Cute.
Smell: Slightly above-average for an AIPA. A light floral hop vibe along with a gently toasted malt backbone; but not a great deal of power in this area. I was kinda hoping it'd be a touch stronger. Let's see how she fares.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Very original for an AIPA! Beer goes in gently, and foams up about medium-softly. Taste is slightly nutty, with a big emphasis on spices! Nutmeg, light cinnamon, maybe even a dash of anise...and then the gentle, floral bouquet coming back around to pull this beer together. Finishes smooth, rinses marginally clean, and leaves a soft, subtle and sweet reminder in the back of your throat. Surprisingly refreshing!
Overall: Don't know if I would have called this "Diabolical." It's angelic. Really good beer here from a previously unheard of (by me) brewery. Kudos!

My bottle is dated 6-04-14 clearly on the back of the bottle.
A - Pours out a slightly hazy golden with a half finger white head that died off relatively fast. Look really carbonated with bubbles streaming up really fast. Leaves great lacing.
S - Smell comes off nutty, piney, grassy, herbal, not sweet and smells dry. No sign of alcohol and not super fragrant.
T - Follows the nose with a nutty, piney, lemony taste, a nice bitter bite, a slight sweetness and a slight bitter bite on the finish. No sign of alcohol and the taste seems to go pretty fast.
M - Highly carbonated, soft full mouth feel, with a high drink-ability.
O - Over all this is a pleasant IPA, which i find more enjoyable the more I drink. Not really super impressive but it still has some great qualities. If you like to try enjoyable IPA's that are not to over the top give this one a try, Cheers!
