Ass Kisser. Gotta admit, I bought this one for the name and the bottle, which features a lip imprint on the posterior of what appears to be a donkey. Busting out the snifter for this guy. Pours a hazy tangerine, very orange in color. Light lacing with a small off white head. Fruits and pine dominate the nose, and there's a nice sweetness underneath the surface, combined with some doughiness. Not really all that bitter, especially for the style, with a syrupy mouthfeel. While the aroma is quite nice, the taste doesn't quite deliver what the aroma promises. There's some hop stuff going on, floral, pine, grass, pineapple, orange. But it's not as pronounced as what I've had in other examples of this style. Likewise the malt is there as well, particularly in the sweetness, but it's kind of lacking too. The high ABV leaves a lingering burning in the chest. There's something quite off in this beer, somewhat medicinal, I'm not sure. It's hard to put my finger on it but it's unpleasant. Maybe it's the alcohol I'm not sure. Kind of like taking an average IPA and dumping a shot of vodka in it. If you don't like being able to taste the high ABV in your beers I'd avoid this one. However if you like IPAs and don't mind the ABV it's an okay example of the style.

Pours golden brown with a finger head. Boozy smell with not much character. Wheaty to the tongue but finishes boozy. I bought it because of the name to be honest. It wasn't bad but it didn't blow my mind. Overall, It's an average IPA. I would buy it again but only if I was left with few options.

The back-end bitterness is very mild with most of the hops coming from late additions, as far as I can detect. It seems weak and underpowered for a DIPA. The flavor is nice and mild with no booze detected, pleasant caramel and biscuity flavors being countered by citrus and fruit hops. I'd drink it again because it wasn't a bad beer by any means, it was just not what I've come to expect from a DIPA
