4.13/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
on-tap @ Belmont Station.
Clear golden with a foamy white head.
Big resinous, piney, lightly boozy, citric flavor notes.
Medium body, with a slightly oily, mouth coating feel.
A very well done, big DIPA. Dangerously drinkable for such high ABV, as I could easily throw back a few pints without thought!
Serving type: on-tap

750ml, filled 8/17/13, drank 8/24/13
A: Pours a slightly hazed deep orange. Almost seems lighter than the Pallet Jack. Good layer of bright white head. Stays around. Leaves a little lacing.
S: Smells like delicious fruity goodness. Big tropical fruits. Citrus dominated. Also get a good load of pine and resin. Sweetness from the malt bill.
T: Bitterness up front. Fruity goodness. I thought I was gonna have more malt but it was really nice and hop forward. Dangerously easy to drink.
M: It's a big medium here. Very easy to drink.
Serving type: growler

On tap at Apex the other day. I think the abv. was around 9.8%, but I'm not positive about that.
The beer pours an orange amber color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose... Jesus Christ, it's a Barley Brown DIPA (there's nothing else quite like them). The nose is just completely over the top, with a huge aroma of pine, dry citrus, skunky weed and peat. The beer smells like the inside of a barn, but one where fresh hops were stored for quite some time. The flavor profile replicates the nose, except I don't pick up any of the peat or barnyard aroma. However, this is a massively hoppy DIPA, one with a bitterness level that is almost punishing. There's barely enough sweet malt to keep it all together, as my palate felt as if it was assualted by a tidal wave of hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel was fairly full, with a long, dry, incredibly bitter finish. Alcohol was pretty much unnoticeable, which is hardly a surprise, given the avalanche of hoppy bitterness on the palate.
An amazing beer, but the 12 ounce glass I enjoyed was plenty. My palate was literally worn out after drinking a glass of this bad boy.
