3.3/5 rDev -20.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
As the name would suggest there is not much complexity here, this one is a straight hop extract experience.
Pours a dark amber with dark orange hue, has a thin head with a slick and oily ring.
Smells of cleaning fluid like an orange citrus pine sol, with a rotting wet leaves pungency.
Tastes of extreme hop like extract, very one dimensional, dry almost goes full circle to a cardboard like pucker.
Feel is medium body trending toward a thinning by carbonation and killed by the strong alcohol overall.
IMO a complete failure of a DIPA by this otherwise favored brewery. There is no subtleness of craft here. I always look for a positive note from an an otherwise committed to the craft entity.
I could see this beer as still being able to deliver a hop experience after/during smoking 2 or 3 cigars!

4.7/5 rDev +13%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
On tap at the Churchill pub in Victoria. Nonic Pint glass
Appearance : Quite a hazy gold/amber but a lot of that was a chill haze; it did start to clear as it warmed up
Smell : Pine, lemon peel, dank and a little biscuity malt thrown in. You can tell this beer is gonna be huge.
Taste : More pine, dank hops. An absolute hurricane of bitterness, it really hits you in waves and because of the way this beer is brewed (mashing and sparging with hopped wort) it has a very complex and intense hop character. Just doesn't fade, lots of hop resins lingering on the palate and far too easy to drink for 9.5% but just awesome.
Mouthfeel : Big and full, lots of body and a really dry bitter finish that just leaves you wanting another sip. Bit of a boozy sweetness on the back end.
Overall : Killer beer, just a massive imperial IPA and for anyone that likes big, crazy double/imperial IPAs this is a must try.
Serving type: on-tap
