The lastest in my DIPA quest.... poured into a tulip glass from a bomber. Pours with slight head and slight carbonation.... color is closer to golden and very clean... no murkiness to be found.
Smells like a citrus and hop garden, which usually leads to good things in my DIPA experiences. Probably the closest, in terms of smell, that i've found to Pliny since, well, having Pliny.
Hops hit immediately and do not subside for the duration of the drink. This is not a balanced DIPA and, well, that's the way I like it. The beer drinks very light and the sense of alcohol is minimal.
Right now I'd say this is the best DIPA that I can get down in NC, a little ahead of the meaner manalashi. However, like MM, it shares the same problem of having a high price point that's going to keep it from being a regular purchase. Still, get your hands on this one if you can.

Sample at Max's on 7/23/14 (from notes)
A: Lacing and copper colored.
S: Hops, all day.
T: Bitter as hell. Along with pine, that is the taste. I don't usually get this even with some of the other big IPAs out there.
M: Smooth with light carbonation.
O: Unbalanced but hoppy and bitter as hell.
Serving type: on-tap
