look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours a hazy orange with a one-finger white head. Lots of sticky lacing.

S - Aromas of grapefruit, orange peel, and big piney hops.

T - There is a citrus peel and piney hops right upfront. Once the citrus fades the bitterness kicks in. The bitterness is aggressive and lasts through the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very dry mouthfeel.

O - This is one big bad DIPA. Lots of piney hops and aggressive bitterness.

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.
