3.8/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from bomber into Carolus tulip glass. Light golden, little head and head retention in these glasses.

Smell is floral, nice malt notes of damn near tootsie roll. Definite pine, slight esters of bubblegum. Pretty complex for a $6.89 bomber! Do agree that it's a little funky.

Taste up front is delicately spiced, with honey and solid floral bitter coming soon there after, that melds into a great malt background, with some pears, and OK manageable alcohol presence. Lasting taste is the only lacking thing here. Kind of disappointing for a beer that started so wonderful. Bitter, drying hops finish... eventually.

Overall, a supreme $7 bomber. Not as crisp as its younger bro, Matter Hatter IPA, but far more complex. A great beer to let your nose and taste buds discover.

4.1/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a Hop Stoopid Priced bomber, obviously that means an actually good price!

Pours a copperish color half finger of light tan head, nice lacing

Smell is pineapple, bready and caramel malt, grapefruit, pine, a spicy note aswell. Smells like your average DIPA

Taste is a dose of bready malt followed by a some citrus, grapefruit, lemon, orange, pineapple, pine, spicey hop note, piney bitterness on the finish

Mouthfeel is medium full, carbonation is full and cleaning.

Decent offering here, glad I tried it. It is interesting, opens up malty but then hits you with the hops, kind of unique in that way, wish I knew the date instead of it just saying "Vintage 2014"
