Yowza! This one will jump up and smack you in yo damn face! Deep orange/amber pour into DFH IPA glass. Good one finger foamy head, dissipates somewhat quickly, leaving lots of tiny bubbles and ample lacing all the way down. Cloudiness and floaties yield an unfiltered appearance. Smell is strong piney nose with hints or orange and grapefruit. On the palate, the hops dominate (85 IPUs, for crying out loud), but there is enough malt on the backside to provide some balance, which helps offset the heavy alcohol (10% ABV). Big chewy mouthfeel. Hard to imagine drinking more than 1-3 of these and living to tell about it, but maybe that is how it got its name.
