poured 22oz bomber into snifter.

A - Cloudy dark honey amber in color with a thin half finger head.Thin cap stays and leaves behind spotty lacing.

S - Good amount of honey, caramel from malts with floral notes and a slight dank citrusy smell in the background.

T - Starts off more caramel malt and sweet honey, but the bitterness from all the hops takes over. Bitter, floral, and citrus notes seem to to be the biggest players in the flavor department.

M - Nice, smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and good carbonation.

O - A solid offering from Black Husky, and you definitely can tell there is honey used in this beer. Not quite as good as the Pale Ale and Sproose, but those were awesome.

Bottle num 1334, thanks to nvrthswayagain (reddit) for this one. Shared with rudzud.

Big creamy head, 1 finger, nice lacing, hazy dark ruby red with mild honey color.

Nose big sweet malt, reddish candy, lots of caramel, into citrus piney hops, candied orange peel, bit fruity, some honey as well.

Taste big sweet malts, candy sweetness and heavy with little toffee, etc. Big piney earthy hop, older feel hops, candied orange, into honey, mostly dry mild sweet honey, with warming booze. Finish bitter orange peel and booze, weird tangy hop thing, quite earthy, too.

Mouth med to fuller bod, decent carb, warming tingly booze.

Overall ok but meh. Not quite what I was expecting for a great DIPA, perhaps it has a bit too much age on it, but without a bottling date tehre's no way to really tell. I did enjoy it a bit more than rudzud, but still wasn't as strong as i expect for a great DIPA these days.

I'm so proud of our little Wisconsin brewery, Black Husky. This is definitely one of the best straight-ahead double IPA's I've ever had. The mouthfeel is so chewy as to be a liqueur. While the intense hop bitterness is a force with which to be reckoned, the buttery smoothness makes this brew emminently drinkable.

It is a serious ABV, though. I'm totally reeling. Yet the sweetness counterbalances the
