Hot diggity. Raul ain't never been to Wisconsin, but they sure are doing something right over yonder. This thang is big and heavy (not like a Wisconsin girl after some cheese curds "big and heavy") but good, big and heavy. Bitter like a Kardashian breakup up and stronger than my ex governor while on HGH. This lil sucker is supple and smooth.

Raul agrees. Raul agrees well and good!

IPA pours a golden clear color with very little head. The smell contains a strong aroma of hops, but has a sweet floral sent. The taste is very well balanced, has a nice floral hop taste, on the bitter side but not crazy. The easiest double IPA i ever had, very easy to drink, but still has a nice full underwater flavor. Overall a very nice Imperial IPA, not as strong and bitter, but well balanced, full of flavor, and has a sweeter fresh taste.

12 oz bottle into tulip

A - Gorgeous clear orange-yellow beer with 2 fingers of awesome eggshell white head. Looks amazing.

S - Heavy pine backed up with some citrus. Fruity citrus notes become more apparent the deeper you smell. Great.

T - Just like you would expect from the nose; a blast of piney hops followed by a smooth citrusy finish. One of the most drinkable and balanced DIPAs I've ever had. No alcohol taste at all.

M - Very oily, smooth and resinous. Perfect balance with enough malt character as I want in a bigger DIPA.

O - Glad to have tried this brilliant beer. It's very reminiscent of PtE, but perhaps better given the ABV! I hope to get my hands on more of these.
