Bitter but not terrible. These sneak up on you if you drink more than 3. Don't let your girlfriend drink these, it's called raging bitch for a reason.

Appearance - Light amber colour with mild streaming CO2. Good off white foam head that is around 3 fingers and is pretty tight in make up. Good head retention and some light lace

Smell - Yet another IPA that smells like a Lemon Geranium plant ie piney and citrusy. There is also decent amounts of grape, orange, mandarin, coriander seed and leafy wood.

Taste - Sweet at first, this one rides from sugary malts to citrus fruit; mandarin and through to piney hop but none of these elements are over powering or dominant. The whole experience is well balanced, full and refreshing.

Mouth feel - Smooth and medium bodied, neither dry nor cloying but also lacking in pronounced linger.

Overall - WEll balance and tasty but slightly pedestrian the mouth feel is the weakest link but this beer is by no means a bad beer just a bit of a let down given the hype.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to a tulip glass.

A: Lovely amber body with a slight bit of haze. 1'' off-white head persists.
S: Floral hops paired with the spicy, slightly rubbery Belgian yeast.
T: Fairly sweet taste. Starts off with a bitter grapefruit taste. Strong sweet caramel malt forms the body of the taste. Finishes with a spicy note from the yeast. Hops linger on after the finish.Strong alcohol presence.
M: Medium.
O: Strong Belgian IPA, probably best described as a DIPA. Very enjoyable. Will get again.

I love this beer, one of the best imperial IPAs you can find on the east coast, let alone Baltimore. Absolutely delicious and definitely worth a try. On tap in the Baltimore/Washington area is best but from bottles delicious nonetheless. definitely worth a try.
