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!!
