4/5 rDev -5.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Deep clear red with a fantastic reddish-white head. Great looking beer. Extreme lacing - sticks to the sides long after pouring.
S: Sweet tangy hops, caramel. Delicious smell.
T: Solid hop flavor backed by a touch of sweet malt. This is an extreme IPA - don't try it if you hate bitter beer. It reminds me of an Arrogant Bastard ale.
M: Medium-bodied, good carbonation, VERY astringent. The astringency is almost sickening, drying out the tongue quite a bit.
D: Drinkable, but there are more drinkable extreme IPAs. I'll recommend this to some of my friends who are more into the overpowering bitterness than I am.
