Bottled on January 8th, 2015. Poured from a bomber into a tulip.

A: Pours a golden color with a 2 finger head of white foam. After a minute or 2 the head fades to a thin film that leaves a few tiny spots of lacing.

S: Pungent aromas of spicy, zesty hops with a kind of grassy smell to it. A bit of piney hop aromas as well. The nose of this beer is pretty one dimensional as all I'm really getting is earthy/herbal hops that are almost unbearable.

T: Flavors of dank, spicy hops and a good amount of pine. Once again very one dimensional, with no malt detectable whatsoever.

M: Medium body with high carbonation and a bold, crisp mouthfeel. There is a high amount of bitterness that leaves a long, lingering finish on the palate.

O: I am a big fan of double IPAs, however I was not a fan of this beer. It is the definition of a "hop bomb" that doesn't have much balance at all. There is no malt detectable whatsoever, and in my opinion this hurts the beer by making it very unbalanced to the point of being almost undrinkable. At first I thought maybe the beer was spoiled, but the code of 008 5 on the neck of the bottle shows it was bottled on January 8th, 2015 (5 weeks ago). I guess I'm just not a fan of this one. Maybe I'll give it another go sometime down the road, but I probably wouldn't drink this beer again.

Poured sideways into tulip. Medium head with tremendous resurgence upon agitation. Amber/Orange in color. Aromatics were largely floral and piney with a medium hint of sweet maltiness on ~3rd smell. Tremendous pine and citrus capacity with underlying floral notes. Medium body with a lingering spritz carbonation (especially after agitation). Overall, a fantastic, richly bitter beer that does the job. Cheers!
