4.5/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
S: As expected big doses of floral/pine/citrus hops, w/some sweet maltiness as well.
A: Deep orange, thick white head.
T: Similar to elder, but beefed up 4% and a ton more hop flavor. Citrus, pine, floral big american hop flavors. Big bitter dry finish.
M/D: Fairly thick and full mouthfeel as to be expected of a big beer. Still not noticeably boozy or sweet. Just the pure bitterness hurts drinkability a bit.
Overall: Definitely one of the great DIPA's of the world, but IMO possibly not the best. I've heard that previous years batches were better and I might believe it.
Serving type: on-tap
