Tis the season for some new DIPA to come out. This brew is a dark gold with a foamy white head. Sticky lacing makes for a nice-looking pint of brew. Nose is strong with the hops, very floral with a lot of pine -- again, very thick. taste is spot on for a DIPA, lots of overwhelming hops, some citrus and earthy floral notes, but the aftertaste is really dominated by the hops. Lots of hop oils in the follow-thru leaves this brew a bit unbalanced. Reminds me of Ruination in that way, though this is a bit stronger. Some tylenol and lots of alcohol come through, so I wish this were a bit more balanced. Finish is very bitter and boozy.
This is a perfect brew for any crazed hophead, but I like more balanced hoppy brews most of the time. Still a well-made brew.
