Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.
Not sure why, but I think of my old pog collection when I look at this label. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear salmon-copper (that's a new one) topped by a finger of cream-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, pine sap, peach flesh, timid caramel, and a hint of eucalyptus. The taste brings in more of the same, focusing on the bitter rinds of the aforementioned fruits instead of the bright flesh. A lingering sense of citrus-y chlorophyll keeps an extended vigil throughout the aftertaste, producing an almost medicinal flavor in the process. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a solid DIPA, though the bitterness was overdone a bit, especially considering the fruity promises made by the smell. Still, I wouldn't necessarily be averse to another somewhere down the line.

This beer is true to the name! Bitter but wonderful! A awesome hop aroma from the Columbus and a great caramel end taste to help balance it all out! It's strong but great. I was fortunate to have this brewery a few ocks from me and had this the day after it was canned! Extremely fresh!!! I must admit thought! The full flavor came out in my opinion about a week or so later! Overall great beer for hop heads and bitter bikers alike. Cheers!!

22oz bottle pouring into a pint glass
Batch 55, dated 9-26-13
A- Pours incredibly hazy orange color. Not much of an off white head.
S- Doesn't smell like its only a month old. A dark fruit tone an overly ripened fruits. A sugary malt backbone.
T- A more balanced IPA then I expected. The sugary sweet and caramel flavored backbone really offsets the bitterness and adds good feel to the beer. The beer is bitter and hoppy, but it does seem the hops have died off slightly. There is still a bit of onion, pine, lime. A more herbal and astringent hop flavor.
M- Bitter, but well balanced and a nice feel.
O- Decent enough for a DIPA, although mine is fairly young it has the hop flavoring of an aged IPA. Oh well, give it a shot,
