4.54/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A--Golden, pretty clear, nice head.

S--Powerful, complex hops, very dank, but also very natural smelling, combination of an alpine forest and a compost heap.

T--A dankness combined with a complex array of resinous, herbal hops, and a sweetish malt mainly stays in the background but intrudes a bit too much in the finish.

M--Tremendously drinkable for such a challengingly hop-forward brew, though a tad sweet in the standard DIPA style about which I have mixed feelings.

GF generally pulls this one off very well. The first one I had was challenging , but the second and third went down very easily. A world-class DIPA, though inferior to its cousin, Stone Ruination.

Good God, this is intense stuff! This beer is characterized by big hop and malt flavor, super boozy. Nice citrusy flavors from start to finish. Awesome copper color, beautiful beer. Significant amount of head with thick lacing. Never disappointed by Green Flash.
