In a snifter on release day: 4/21

Finger and a half of foamy, pale whaite head. Body is golden with hues of brown. Slight hazy look and no carbonation evident. 4.25

Big citrusy nose almost suggests OJ. Resinousand spicy too. Big malt presence too. Seems like an extension of PD. 4.5

Thick hoppy flavor hits the tongue. Theres citrus, resin, grapefruit. Maltiness is also heavy and lends some caramel and breadiness. 4.5

Intense bitterness all around, but particularly at the long dry finish with a tinge of booze. Mostly well disguised alcohol profile. Plenty of sweetness up front and mid-palate, but dtill insanely bitter. 4.5

I am quite enjoying this. Very intense mouthfeel and a heap of flavors going on, but it's done quite artfully. 4.5

Thanks Majin!

Pours clear pale gold with a finger of head that recedes to a collar. Huge and awesome aromatics, very tropical with guava and mango, sweet white grape, and plenty of dankness. Touch of sweetness, largely just massive layers of hops. The palate is fairly dry for how enormous the beer is, and it's remarkably hop forward for nearly 11%. Tropical notes of guava, pineapple, mango, along with some grassy dankness and a touch of boozy warmth. Gentle bitterness in the finish. Dry. This is incredible stuff, further proof that LCBC is making some of the best beers in the world.

Twenty-two ounce bottle shared by Sasaha - thanks. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a clear yellow with a solid 1-inch thick white head which fades to a thin cap and leaves spotchy lace.

N: Pungent tropical fruits (mango, passion, pineapple), faintly grassy, some mildly sweet malts for balance.

T: Follows nose with a weedy-dankness and herbal overtone.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes dry, sticky/resiny.

O: Enjoyed the aromatics especially. Yeah Nelson Sauvin.

Acquired in a trade with miggs3030

A- Pours a clean, light golden color with a bone white head. Doesn't hang around too long. Solid lacing. A soft looking DIPA for such a big beer

S- Bright fruity aroma. Passion fruit, mango, lemon grass, orange zest, and some pineapple. Tropical with a slight amount of the typical Nelson hop onion character.

T- Whoa buddy! Things escalated rather quickly. Citrus hops strangle the tongue and never want to let go. The battle ensues with cracker like malt that steps in to break things up. Depth galore.

M- Crisp, refreshing, dry. Mid body. Pretty spot on for the style. 10.6 is present, but not at all hot.

O- I can't put this glass down. I just cant get enough of it. The best way to judge a beer is how you feel about it when you reach the bottom of the glass...and I was really sad to see that glass empty on this one.
