Bottled on 6/11/14. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a glowing burnt orange with a small white head that leaves nice retention and lacing. The aromas have lots of grapefruit along with some bread notes. Some caramel malts in the mix. The flavors are very bitter. This is a bitter bruiser! The malts definitely take a backseat in the flavor department, but they're still there. Citrus notes are there. Grapefruit and orange seem to shine. Some lemon and lime zest in the mix as well. Lots of fresh pine needles along with pine resin. The alcohol basically goes unnoticed, but there's a subtle warmth in the finish. The mouthfeel is very nice. It's full-bodied with active carbonation; fluffy and creamy making this pretty smooth. This makes for a nice sipper.

This is a no holds barred type of DIPA. They seem to focus on the brutal bitterness, which they executed. I'm personally not crazy about this one, but I appreciate the craftsmanship. I like their Hoo Doo more, for what it's worth.

Pours a three finger dirty yellow head over a nearly clear copper liquid. Smells potent american hops. Pith, pine, orange, lemon, strawberry jam, candle wax, clean alcohol, and some grassiness.

Tastes rich hop flavor with some smoothness. Green onion, garlic, baby aspirin, and orange. Strong clean bitter with a lemony finish. I don't know why anyone would use these awful hops to flavor a beer. Md body and strong carbonation.
