I've been snagging some good brews lately and this is no exception. The beer is a pristine copper in color with an ample off white head. The head is super sticky and displays some amazing retention.
Um, HOPS! The nose is rife with sticky resinous hop goodness. Very piney with some grapefruit undertones offset but a nice touch of malt sweetness. This is very reminiscent of a beer run through a hop infuser, very fresh and green.
Taste and Mouthfeel:
Well all hops aren't always the best thing and I think they're a tad dominating here. From beginning to finish there's a solid bitter grapefruit hop base. Up front your given some sweetness but this is quickly swallowed up by layers of hop intensity. The finish is surprisingly clean and I'm only left with a tinge of bitterness in to the aftertaste.
Aside from the highish ABV this beer has enough going for it flavor wise to beg another drink. I don't see myself getting too far in to hopsickle country but it's worth a couple visits.
When I bought this I though it was a triple IPA and I thought I was going to hate it but lo and behold this is actually one of the better DIPA I've had the pleasure of trying. A good and hoppy beer which could use a little bit more malt character but hop heads rejoice.
