The wolf inside this pale ale is trying to walk upright. This bright and aromatic beer was brewed with our friends in the band Pig Destroyer.

Phenomenal tasting beer worthy of a world class rating!
I got tons of onion and garlic on the aroma.
Tongue abrasive, palate killing taste!
Just a great beer, if you can get yer hands on a bottle DO IT!

Thanks so much to ErikO60102 for hooking me up with this big want of mine! Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. Bottleneck says 01/14/2015.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Juicy, tropical fruit aroma brings to mind passionfruit, guava and pineapple.

T- Fruity in the onset with a bitterness that is certainly present yet perfectly restrained. Alcohol is incredibly well-concealed and there's just enough malt backbone to provide complementary sweetness leading to an overall balance that's damn near perfect. After multiple sips, the bitterness starts to slowly creep in but still stays at bay for the most part. Great hop burps.

M- Tangy and bright with medium carbonation and a lightish body. There's also a bit of creaminess upon further inspection.

O- How is this 10.5%? I can't wrap my head around how deliciously smooth this is while also being so high gravity. Astonishing. Just when I thought I've encountered all the wonderful and complex layers of flavor a DIPA has to offer, something like this comes along to show me that there are still a lot of innovations left to be seen in the style.
