A: Really nice looking. Dark amber/blood orange, off white head that sticks around for days. Pretty sticky retention
S: Interesting. A kind of metallic note (don't know how else to describe it) that I got off hopslam this year in a bad way, and what I get off all no-coast IPA's in a good way - so I'm assuming a concentrated astringency and resin. It doesn't do much for it but take away. There is a sweet biscuit and melon character that comes through. Very bitter, concentrated grapefruit oil and not-very-sticky resin.
T: Again interesting. This is only their second batch of this, and I assume it will get better each time. The concentrated metallic astringency, as I have labeled it, dominates. There is more citrus and tropical hop fruitiness. There is a really nice astringent tropical fruit kick at the end. Very resinous and sticky.
P: Very smooth, a little thin, chewy at the finish.
O: Nice DIPA. I love ghost biker pale and can imagine this being a great beer, however, at the moment it is a little messy. Looking forward to future batches.

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!!
