3.9/5 rDev +2.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
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!!

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,
