12oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). Bottled 8/10/12. Served in a Souther Tier snifter.
Pours clear deep amber with two finger of fluffy head that leaves small patches of lace.
Smell of pine, citrus peel, grapefruit and raisin bread.
Taste is a big bitter grapefruit hop bomb! Those grapefruity hops lead the assault on the palate, followed by the pine, rind, fresh cut grass, biscuits and mellow peppery spice. There's a bit of booze kick, but the 10% is well hidden in the bitter malange of grapefruit.
Medium full feel with mild to medium carbonation. Long dry bitter grapefruit finish.
Outstanding double IPA. One of the best I've had. I can't really compare it to Hopslam because they are two totally different things but this is just as good in it's own way. I really wish I could have bought at least a six pack but I'm really glad to have finally gotten to try this.
