I guess...

Another IPA, another problem. I mean, Raul knows that it is palatable, but on a daily basis of drinking Pliny, Nelson, AleSmith IPA, Ruination, Racer 5, Sculpin... Blah blah blah blah! I can sip on it, but why should Raul care? Raul agrees, but he ain't stoked.

Peace!

*Raul don't like this review and he plans to revisit the beer. (Especially after he has grown to understand, and even love East Coast IPA's.)

Pours a beautiful cascading effervescent golden amber. White head and sticky lacing throughout.

The aroma is fantastic. Big tropical citrus (papaya, grapefruit, guava, mango) front and malt.

How do we go from such a tropical smelling quaff to the flavors of onion and garlic. Got the sweet malt and a piney bitterness going on.

Carbonation is low and bitterness lasts.

I'm not getting the high IBU count here. Took this on the advice that this is close to Zombie Dust...quite not true. Not seeing the hype here, matter of fact I'm disappointed. Now I know why this is always on the shelves throughout Chicagoland. Dreadnaught is better at a lower price. This is not a juicy grapefruit, but rather a pine cone bomb in an onion patch. One good thing though--it is drinkable. This reminds me of Stone's Enjoy By brews. I will not be buying this in the future.

Poured a bomber into slightly chilled tulip pint glass.

A - A nice bright orange coloring with a moderate white head. Sticky lacing coats the glass as it goes down. Lots of carbonation going on there.

S - I was expecting a wonderful grapefruit and pine stink to come wafting off of this, but very subdued... disappointing. A very faint smell.

T - Hoppy but a sweet sort of hoppiness. There's a bit of a malty taste here which I enjoy. A small twinge of grapefruit followed by a very spicy and unique aftertaste of orange zest.

M - Thick... like there is some good alcohol backing here. Enjoyable.

O - If I hadn't already tried Dreadnaught and Apocalypse Cow I think I would have enjoyed this more. It's good, but so far it's last on my list of FFF DIPAs I'd choose.

22oz bomber into pint glass.

Pours a a light golden amber color with one finger head and no particulates.

Nose gives off grassy, slightly tropical hops with a slight alcohol scent.

Taste gives off strong nail polish flavors with grassy and vegetal hop notes. Sweet, honey-like malt presence.

Moderate to low carbonation with a sweet finish and extremely bitter aftertaste.

Overall an okay brew but highly present alcohol flavors and faded hop taste. Might try a fresher bottle but otherwise wouldn't seek this out.
