look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

A: A hazy lifesavers orange color with bright white head that falls quickly. The teku didn't show much lacing except on the initial couple sips.

S: Mango, pine and stone fruit hop aroma right off the bat. A hint of alcohol comes out and in a munich bready vibe.

T: Wow.. A sharp, jagged pine bitterness (definatly in the 90+ IBU range) crushing the taste buds for a few sips. After the luplin shift adjusts a sweet toasty malt profile comes through in the middle and a finishing flavor that resembles the stone fruit from the aroma.

M: A super dry finish that might be emphasised by the sharp bitterness. Low/moderate carbonation and a lingering drying mouth sensation from the hop oils... probably

O: The bitterness in this beer had a very jagged characteristic that made it less than easy to drink. Not sure if it was the water used or gypsum.. but if it wasn't for that I think it would have been a good DIPA..

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.
