A bottle, picked up direct from the brewery and poured a few days later into my Bruery tulip.
Looks: pours an almost clear rosy orange. A creamy head about a finger thick quickly recedes to a heavy layer of film. Tracts of jagged horizontal lacing decorate the glass as I go.
Smells: like the freshest, dankest hop cones. Seriously, stuffing my face into fistfuls of fresh hops couldn't produce a better aroma. Piney, grassy and floral, with lilac, sweet mango and a certain dank quality in the background.
Tastes: like the nose, to a T. lightly piney and heavily grassy, with sweet mangoes, pineapples, and again, that musky dank character.
Feels: lush and smooth, subtly carbonated and medium-bodied. A warming alcohol can be felt as it travels down the throat and into the stomach. The bitterness isn't tongue-blasting, which is surprising for a DIPA.
Drinks: incredibly easily for such a huge beer. The flavors are intense but never get out of control. Exponential Hoppiness isn't as good by the bottle as it is on tap, but it's still one of the best hop monsters money can buy.
Serving type: bottle
