Batch #9505, Shipped on January 5th

Pours a very nice head to it, with solid bubble density.

Scent is very floral, with heavy overtones of pineapple. Color is a reddish-amber tone.

First sip has some very deep flavors. The hops are definitely there and are in full force. Aftertaste is very bitter, with a sense of the oily residue from the hops evaporating off of your pallet. That in itself makes it distinctive from other types of DIPA's out on the market. That combined with its distinctive accent of pineapple really blends to make one of the finer, richer DIPA's out on the market today.

With it's $16 price point, one may be hesitant at trying this beer. My personal advice:

Don't be.
