look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
12 oz bottle
A: Aggressive side pour into a 12 oz taster glass. Giant, slightly off-white head very slowly receding. Super sticky lacing. A beautiful golden color with particles seen.
S: Hops, sweet malt, citrus, grapefruit.
T: Very nice hops and sweet malt malt well balanced and upfront. Some serious bitterness on the back end and finally a barely detectable alcohol. I taste some breadiness in there too.
M: Smooth and creamy up front with the hops following up and finally a nice warmth from the alcohols
O: This is a great example of a Double IPA. The alcohol is well hidden and I like the price point. Also I keep on wanting to take another sip even though on the bottle it says "Life is Uncertain. Don't sip. This is a great beer at a nice price point. I need to keep a few around. A very nice and unusually unique example of a DIPA.

Got this and Sucks. Like this better. Yeah, I said it.
A- gave it a 4.25 cuz the head retention and color is awesome. Little floaty goodies in there too, but its still clear. Just a great looking brew.
S- Balance. Hops bite you with the bitterness. Malt holds its own.
T- Balance. I love how malty it is. Bitterness is clear and crisp. You can taste the craftsmanship.
M- beautiful. Its dry, but just the right amount. Its almost got a chewy feeling to it, but its just got the perfect amount of body.
Over this beer is fantastic, Id get it over Sucks any day. Yeah, I said that again.
I put just a splash of this in my sauteed mushrooms with garlic and oregano, basil, black pepper and olive oil. It was awesome over steak.
