Very characteristic brew from BB. Big musty smell up front followed by a small amount of piney dankness. Flavor is also falls into line of the other few IPA brews I've had from them, big pine notes with a slight citrus hit in the finish but mostly pine here. Not quite as good as their handtruck pale ale, but I'm a fan of having more tropical hop flavor/aroma and less malt body. If you love drinkable pine forward DIPA's this is your beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Served from tap at Belmont Station, Portland Oregon - June 28, 2013

Appearance: Golden amber. Medium sized head. Par for DIPA

Smell: DANK! Floral dankness, pine dankness. Did I mention dank?

Taste: Lots happening. How many different hops are in this one? Sheesh. Fresh helps of course, but hops aroma and flavor abound.

Mouthfeel: Sharp, without being too bitter.

Overall: Killer. Had a pint of Pliny the Elder before this one. While Pliny is a more sessionable DIPA, with flavors fading on the finish, Tank Slapper sustains. It's a sipper. Easy to get lost in. A new favorite!
