The beer is mostly clear and golden with a frothy white head. Aromas of yeast, bread, hops, resin, grass, a touch of alcohol. Decent flavor. Bready and what I commonly refer to as a "balanced" IPA or DIPA. Resinous hops and pine notes with a warming alcohol finish. This is ok.

poured from the bomber into a tulip.

A - right off the bat something is missing. pretty much no head on the pour what-so-ever. zero retention on what is there, lacing of the glass barely exists. The liquid is a pretty dark, honey colored yellow, but that's about the only thing it's got going for it.

S - the only smell i get off this is bittering hops. no individual notes associated with different hops that may or may not have been used... just a mess of "bitter". Certainly not what I would expect for a DIPA.

T - The bittering hops are there and again are a mess, but the malts dominate. Again, not what I would expect for a DIPA. I get some caramels, and a sticky-sweetness as my dominate notes.

M - Undercarbonated, sticky, not quite cloying, but almost there.

O - This is kind of a messy effort. I think the beer would probably actually benefit from some cellaring, this would give it time to carbonate, the stickiness could dissipate, and the bittering hops would balance a little betters - however this would probably cause the little nose that's there to disappear. Rassoul and the guys are great and i will continue to try all their unique products, but this one was a miss.
