Thanks to pnkred for this baby.
Poured a nice golden yellow. Good bit of head rises up, pillowly white with a solid fingers of head. Lacing is good while cold, but as it warms, lacing dissipates.
Smell is dominated by a pine hop profile. A nice honey sweet backing gives some balance, but this is all about the hops.
This one assualts your palate like none other. A strong, unforgiving DIPA. Piney hops from beginning to end. You get a nice sweet honey flavor in the foreflavor, and tries to follow through. The hop assault is only over after you get a return of hops from your gut. This baby bites hard.
A nice, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol is super well hidden.
A great DIPA, and perhaps overhyped. Yet, it is quite good when fresh and well worth searching high and low.
