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!
