look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

12oz bottle to a Duvel Tulip.

A: Golden orange, with a small off-white head that recedes to a ring. Probably the alcohol level keeping the head off this one.

S: A forest of hops here. Really potent citrus of orange and grapefruit, lemony almost, notes of floral character and pine. This is what west-coast hops is all about. Nothing else going on in the nose beyond this bouquet.

T: Hops. Sticky, resiny, citrus and pine hops all over the place. This is as flavorful of a hop bomb as any I've ever had. Grapefruit and floral are most prominent flavors, but theirs alot going on under this bitter tongue biter. Only the slightest biscuity malt is present, and you really have to strain to taste it.

M: I don't think I'm breaking new ground by saying this one is bitter. It finishes clean, has lots of aftertaste of resiny hops. But yeah, don't plan on tasting any beer after this one.

O: West Coast big IPA's always seem to be a little too syrupy and boozy for me. This one hit it perfectly. It's a bitter bruiser with a ton of flavor. Definitely want more of this soon.
