One of many beers in a big box exchange with mordormongo. Thanks again, homie. Poured into my Hill Farmstead tulip.
A - Whoa. Pours a gigantic billowing head that refuses to dissipate. Just...wow. Haven't seen that in a beer that wasn't an over carbonated homebrew.
S - Tons of malt and very slightly piney.
T - A ton of malt with very little hop. There is a bit of piney and earthy hops that are in there, muddled amongst the overwhelming malt.
M - Decent mouthfeel and not as much carbonation as in the head.
O - Not the best first impression from this brewery. It feels like one of those Saranac-esque IPA's that you'd get in a mix pack at a grocery store.

Thanks to beerhan for the bottle. Dated Oct 31
Hazy reddish orange color with barely a one finger head achieved with a vigorous pour. Little lacing.
Aroma is very light but with inviting citrus notes. The taste combines citrus with spicy hops on a bready malt base.
Good body and mouthfeel. A bit light but very drinkable. A tasty IPA. I would like to try it again with a fresher bottle. This one seems like it has some potential.

Saw Diabolical on the shelf at Jungle Jims and couldn't resist a beer with 66.6 IBU and 6.66% ABV. Seems like a winner
A: Pours a hazy orange in the glass with about 2 fingers head with some lace left behind.
S: Nose is lemon, pepper, citrus, and malt
T: Taste is strong citrus and a bit of pepper as well as some lingering bitterness that mellows after a short while.
M: Mildly carbonated and easy to drink
O: It isn't my favorite IPA but it certainly would make a great 6 pack to drink in the summer.
