Very unique blend of hops. I'd put this up against...nothing that I can think of. I've never had a DIPA quite like this. Very smooth for a near 10 ABV and incredibly well balanced. Just be careful! Thos os the type of beer that will get you HAMMERED. A must try for the ipa lover.

On tap at Speakeasy's 16th Anniversary Party:

Pours a hazy bright yellow with slight orange edges. Creamy off white head. Aroma is all hops. The malt backbone is barely noticeable which was clearly the intention. Huge notes of pineapple, mango, passion fruit, peaches, and melon. So much citrus hop focus in the aroma. Taste follows the nose extremely well. Not overly sweet with exceptionally balanced flavors from all the different hops in this beer. One of the smoothest and creamiest 10% IPAs I've had, amazing how well the alcohol was covered up. Dangerously easy to drink! Hop profile is Simcoe, Amarillo, Citra, Columbus, Apollo, and Mosaic. An excellent TIPA, hopefully this is rebrewed and maybe even added to Speakeasy's lineup.
