Served up in my tulip at cellar temperature.
An unstoppable three-finger, slightly off-white head puffs up no matter how carefully poured. The body is a crystal clear dark golden orange. One might call it amber.
Resinous pine, pink grapefruit, and dank hops fill the aroma. Ahh... these are some of my favorite IPA scents...
And it hits! A hurricane of hugely bitter hops! The flavor has a resinous and resonating explosion of bitterness that tastes of citrus, pine, and grapefruit peel. It has a dry, astringent bitterness in the finish that reveals a little bit of maltiness: that splendid biscuity breadiness that the finer IPAs possess. Seldom does an IPA deliver such intense hoppiness as this. What more can one ask for in a DIPA's flavor?
Feel? Oh yeah. The feel. Sorry but the deliciously dank, bafflingly bitter hop flavor has me distracted, I'm affraid. The feel is ideal... for unleashing the untamed hop beast within.
Few DIPAs have made an impression on me like this one has. As I sip it, my palate not only adjusts to the unbridled bitterness, but begins to crave it. For true connoisseurs of IPAs, this is not a palate wrecker, but a palate placebo. Bathe in the bitterness, my friends.
