2.88/5  rDev -30.4%

22oz bottle into a tall tulip

A: Pours a dark golden, slightly amber color with two fingers of fluffy head. Good retention and great lacing.

S: Very strong hop aroma, even for the style. I get piney hops followed by dank, resiny hops and a touch of citrus. A touch of bready malts come through, but there is not much of a malt presence here.

T: Really odd. A nice bitterness comes through with much more caramel sweetness than I anticipated from the aroma. An extremely strong hop flavor comes through, balanced citrus and pine. The hop flavor is unbelievably strong - I don't think I've ever had such a strong hop flavor in a beer - I'd imagine the 15 minute addition is very, very high.

M: Medium thickness for the style with appropriate carbonation.

O: The hop flavor in this beer kills anything else that might have been good in this beer. It is intense - much higher than I've had in any other beer. It certainly got better as I kept drinking, but I drain poured a significant part of the bottle.

3.61/5  rDev -12.8%

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 7.99. Bottled 3/14/13. Served in a Three Floyds teku.

Pours deep gold with a half finger of near white head that leaves very little lace.

Smells sharply of grapefruit, pine and orange peel with a bit of alcohol.

Taste is full of big, bitter pine, citrus peel, grapefruit, pepper, biscuit and a big dose of booze (much more than expected).

Medium body with fairly sharp carbonation. Bitter, lingering finish with some fusel alcohol burn.

Tasty but lacking something to really elevate it above other DIPAs. Comes accross as much more boozey than most in the style. No regrets though and I'll probably even buy it again sometime.
