22 oz bottle split and poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint. 11% ABV, no date.
Thanks to Beerwolf77 for bringing this bottle over!
A - EH=PH2 pours a hazed-over golden orange color with a plump bone head with moderate retention and a one big ring of lace. Not very attractive however.
S - With the description I heard read from Todd, I expected more hops than this. Especially with the dry-hopped amount. A bold earthy herbal nose backed by a squeeze of lemony citrus and a kiss of pine needle. A caramel chunk and malt backing with mild fruitiness appears in the far back.
T - Well, at least it's a major hop punch in the flavor despite the lack of it in the aroma. Tons of resin overtakes the floral, citrus, and pine notes. It tastes like walking into a Michael's store. A bit boozy too. A heavy finish of solvent alcohol.
M - Medium-full bodied and malty with a dry and fairly bitter finish but not enough IBUs for their heavy hopped claims methinks. The carbonation is a bit low too.
D - Pretty hoppy but not triple IPA hoppy. I think the booze is a bit high but it's not bad. The blend overall just seems a bit low on the hop scale for their description but without a bottle date its hard to know if it's that way or due to age.
