Right out the gates I was expecting a big hop presence, I really didn't get waves of dank hops as expected, instead it's a rather smooth and subtle taste, not bad b any means. Just not what I was expecting, malt has more of a role than with most double IPA's. At 9.4% I was expecting a taste bud buster. That never happen... It is ridiculously smooth and drinkable for being so high gravity. It just doesn't seem to crave that dank mouth watering hop bill that I have came to love with some of the other DIPA's. Low burn and easy to drink makes it worth seeking~
