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.

A: Deep orange color. Full finger of off white head. Egg shell like color. Sticky lacing sheeting. Good carbonation.

S: True to label, very dank and resinous here. More earthy and pine aromas. Some hints of orange. Sweet malts.

T: Nice hop punch on the front of the tongue. Nice tarts of bitterness attack the taste buds. Again, more of the earthy herbal notes. Some pine. You do get some sweet fruit flavors of orange and tangerine. Finish is dry with lingering bitterness still hitting the tongue.

M: It's medium bodied.

Orange and clear with a real nice head that had plenty of staying power and left real good sticky lace.

True to its name, it's jammed full of hops. Very high perceived bitterness, a whopping aroma, and a ;ungent, fruity, massive hop flavor scream out IPA in every possible way. There's a touch of malt flavors and profiles, but they're residual only. This beer is about the hops.

Body is thick and oily, almost full, with a pronounced hop bitterness and long linger of bitter.

Tasty IIPA for sure.
