Many thanks to ricand for sending me an extremely fresh growler.
It pours a golden, straw yellow. With a creamy white head and tons and tons of sticky lace left on the glass.
Pine, pine and more pine. Just tons and tons of glorious, dank hoppage. A slight bit of pineapple and grapefruit and maybe the tiniest amount of maltiness.
Chewing on pine cones. Not much other hop flavor is coming through and only the slightest bit of malt. Highly unbalanced but it is an amazing hop bomb.
Again, a chewy resinous mouthfeel. Medium bodied with just enough carbonation.
So incredibly drinkable. I couldn't detect the ABV at all and just zoomed through the first pint of this one. An exceptional DIPA.
Serving type: growler
