3.85/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A-pours a bright orange/amber color with a fingers worth of white head that slowly fades to leave some lacing around the top

S-primarily hops with citrus, mostly grapefruit, and pine hops with some light bready malt to give a bit of sweetness

T-really massive amount of hops in the taste with big pine and citrus flavors. Malt does not come to play much in the taste at all, actually its almost absent. Alcohol is well hidden.

M-medium body, medium to full carbonation

Overall this is a massive hop beer with not a lot of balance which makes it slightly difficult to finish. Definitely lives up to the name!

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Poured out a clear deep amber with a big creamy white head. There is great retention and nice sticky lacing. The aroma is big citrus hops, with distinct grapefruit notes, and hints of caramel malt in the background. The taste is also big hops, but splendidly balanced against the malt backbone. The mouthfeel is a little thinner than the taste and aroma indicated but it's not at all thin or watery. A great big DIPA.
