it was a cool spring evening when this beer first graced my lips. This would prove to be a transcendent moment in my life, liken to the feeling you get when you turn 18 and officially become a man, but i digress. this beer is equivalent to drinking the jizz of The Lord Jesus Christ, and for a moment i think he actually apparated in front of me and gave me a hander. 10/10

Poured from the tap at Holy City Brewing.
This is a fantastic American DIPA, If you are in Charleston, SC try this (or most any Holy City beers). A must try.

A: Pours amber, hazy/cloudy. Nice white, foamy head, maybe two fingers tall. Dissipates pretty quickly.

S: Wonderfully robust and smooth bouquet. All sorts of hoppy, citrusy, floral, spicy notes mingling. Not so much piney or resiny.

T/F: Subtly sweet, well balanced. The hops and the booze begin to take over after a few moments, nicely balanced. Finishes with a disappointing isolated sourness and bitterness on the back of the tongue not really typical of most IPAs. The feel is light and a little thin, with moderate carbonation that really begins to come through after a few seconds. Nice.

Overall: I liked it quite a lot. I have not been very high on Holy City offerings in the past, so it's not much of a stretch to say this is my favorite beer I've had from them. I will definitely have this again.

If I could compare it to anything similar, it would be Dogfish 90 Minute, but with a better nose and stronger hop notes. The out-of-step bitterness and sourness at the end is the only knock I have on the overall experience.

Great American Double IPA. It's 10% but it doesn't taste like it. Murky amber look with slight foam. Definitely recommend it on tap. Not usually a double IPA guy, so this was a find for me.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a tulip, the beer is a hazy, bright, orange-copper coloring with a frothy, filmy, clingy, off-white head. Nose of bright citrus, tangy caramel, pine tassel, cut grass, and subtle tropical fruit sweetness. Wow! Flavors are smooth tropical fruit forward, with a subtle caramel backbone, spicy hops profiles, grass, and lemon pepper. Light and refreshing for the style, which is very impressive despite the bold flavors. Smooth and robust bodied, with a tangy sweet and tropical fruit aftertaste. The finish is smooth, light, and resinous, with a good linger. Great brew!

Overly bitter, lacking in aroma.

Exceptional DIPA. High ABV without any bite. Smooth, bitter, and dangerously drinkable. Pours a pretty orange. Light foamy head diminishes into persistent lace. Full resinous pine hop in the nose, even deeper of a flavor. Extremely well balanced hop and malt profiles. My fav DIPA, far and away.
