Quite possibly the first dipa to ever be bottled. Comes out a hearty mix of orange and auburn, drops plenty of hops all over the place.

Taste is ruiningly bitter. Its palate fatigue, but the good kind. Covers alcohol relatively well, the massive ibu payload is all up on you. Got a little malt heavy as lighter drier hop bombs came along, especially the citra hop, but this is definitely one that belongs in the time capsule, heavy C and maybe simcoe hops, lots of crystal malt, warming sensation.
