Sweet jebus, this is a great beer.
The nose, the palate...

Hoppy but not nauseating astringent.
Great sweetness along with high ABV.
This should be a sipper, but nope, half a bomber was gone in 30 min.

Is it the new Pliny? Idunno...Pliny's well balanced. this is more emphatic, more resinous, thicker in the palate. But I like it more than Pliny.

Yes, call me a sinner.

Poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Clean white head with medium froth and density. The head is persistent and clingy.
S - Hoppy, piney, sweet, and grassy.
T - Hoppy, piney, sweet, syrupy, and earthy. For me this beer has a light backend surge. Whatever that means...
M - Full, heavy, and sappy.
O - For me this beer was heavy and unrefined. I think it could use some work and be cleaned up a little. Something is holding this back from being something very worthwhile. A little tweak could push this over the top.

4.8/5  rDev +11.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

pour: a nice white head with a light golden brown brew.

Smell: being a 3x ipa its all hops i shouldnt even have to say it.

Taste: Wow this is a sipper. Your going to have to take a moment with this one not just to enjoy it but the bitterness on the pallet is toughhh!!! If you like hops this is your beer. Hoppy happy over here. Then you get a little bit of malts when you keep drinking but not much.

Overall: This is a great beer to sit back and enjoy but not for the beginners. Be sure to set the pallet up for a kicking before you get into this. I love knee deep for this one good stuff.

Serving type: on-tap
