12oz bottle into a goblet.
I was very let down by this beer. For a brewery that makes a DIPA as outstanding as Hop Stoopid, this one is just as much of a disappointment.
Big chunks of sediment float throughout the liquid and I got no foam even from a generous pour. The lack of bubbles no doubt stunted the smell which was little more than faint malt notes and some resiny floral notes. I sipped on it a while but never got into the flavor. It was like a watered down old ipa. I was just frustrated by it the whole time.
I won't absolutely murder it in this review, since it has pretty good overall reviews and there is a chance that I had an off bottle. Otherwise, I was not impressed.
