Notes/Commercial Description:
You are in a state of full Hop Delusion, but you knew what you signed up for when you popped this bottle. You knew that it had over 100 IBUs of hop bitterness and that it was dry hopped with insane amounts of Simcoe and Mosaic hops, but you chose to drink it anyway. It's difficult to say if you will ever snap out of it, for you have been smitten with the disorder that many can never overcome.

The beer is mostly clear and golden with a lasting white head. Aromas of hops, pine, alcohol, biscuit, a touch of spice. Boozy with a light sweetness. Warming alcohol in the finish. A tad syrupy, coating the palate. A big, thick, malty DIPA. This was ok, but if I want a big, malty, high abv beer I'll seek other styles.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

White head with a lot of lace. Color is a golden orange.

Flavor profile: very juicy. Dank and weedy. A touch of onion. Some mango and orange flavors. A bit of bready malts. Hop resin flavors.

Mouthfeel: bitter and sticky. Medium bodied. Ends with a hop resin stickiness.

Overall, very awesome dipa. Maybe a bit to sticky.
