4/5  rDev -14.7%

First bottled batch, bottled 1 day prior to review. (Note: I had this on tap twice previously and thought it was far better so perhaps the first bottled batch was a bit off…still great though)

Appearance: Very hazy/murky orange, yellow hue, absolutely the murkiest DIPA I’ve drank (almost makes Heady Topper seem clear). Good head and lacing.

Aroma: Great mango, tropical fruits and citrus layered over some slight oniony & vegetal aroma. Very similar to Pseudo Sue but a bit less fruit forward…a little more dank and slightly vegetal.

Taste: Very dry and bitter, possibly a little too dry and bitter. Fruity & citrusy but I get much less in the flavor than in the aroma. Flavor is good, but not near as impressive as the aroma

Mouthfeel: Pretty Good, sort of velvety/creamy….and nicely resinous…maybe a little over-carbonated.

Don’t get me wrong this is an excellent DIPA to be sure, but it’s not a world class beer like Pseudo Sue is. It’s also not quite on par with Heady or Pliney, but it’s definitely a top 20 DIPA. However, I definitely prefer the baby brother (Pseudo Sue) to this.
