Reviewed from notes:

Purchased in August at The Bev in Winooski, VT. Poured in to a New Belgium Globe.

This is a surprisingly good beer. The biggest drawback? I bought it at the same time I bought Heady Topper. But the appearance on this beer was immaculate with an excellent oily hop profile. Next time I find this stuff, I'll give it the justice of a full review.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Distinct nose of spice and unripe mango. Sweet malty component to the taste that clashes with some of the more offbeat hop notes. Thick mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Caught some alcohol on the finish, which is otherwise nicely done. Not a bad DIPA attempt, but not distinguished enough to try again.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a finger of creamy off white head. The smell is sweet with some hops and a slight spice note. The taste is sweet off the bat with a nice hop bitterness. Mild citrus peel bitterness. There is a spice note that reminds me of rye. The finish is sweet from grain and rather hoppy.

A: hazy, orange colored, unfiltered, cloudy
S: pine, resin, booze, some sweetness.
T: huge hop presence balanced well with a sweet malt background, very dry finish.
M: carbonation danced on my tounge
O: this was a pretty great beer. It's definitely a big beer. Hopefully they brew this again. It slightly reminded me of Ruination.
