On tap at Grace's during PBW.

A - A dark gold, filtered DIPA. Nice small cap of white foam that scrapes lacing on the sides of the glass.

S - A very grassy hop presence. A bit of lemon, lime, pine, a bit of MJ if ya catch my drift. No malt presence here.

T - Big notes of lemon and piney bitterness. Strong grassy notes, and strong hop dominance. This is what it says, rips your mouth apart! Theres a boozy sweetness to this that isn't a burden, but actually transitions into a strong caramel malt backbone. But, the initial hop blast is marvelous.

M - Mouth is medium bodied with mid to high carbonation. A lingering bitterness is constant. The IBU on this has to be through the roof.

O - As a DIPA I loved this. Honestly, almost up there with PTY. I will always get this when I see it, and am telling my beer geek friends about this immediately.
