Served from 22oz bomber

A — Pours a light and clear yellow color, there almost appears to be a tinge of green around the edges as well. Thin white colored head doesn't leave behind the greatest lacing ever, but not bad.

S — Smells of lemon and pine needles, almost artificially lemon forward, quite zezty.

T — Tastes like the nose, extremely bitter, notes of lemon, pine, earthy and medicinal.

M — Quite astringent and dry, no real lingering sweetness.

O — OK overall, would actually like to see the ABV a bit higher to bring up some character.

Bright gold colored body; thick, dense, white head; lots of fine carbonation gently rising; sticky clumps of foam on the glass. Fruity aroma with citrus and pine resin notes; lemon; sweet caramel. Soothing biscuit and caramel malt flavors that quickly give way to an intense hop bitterness. Medium-heavy body; chewy; residual sugars add to the body while the huge hop presence and ABV makes for an overall dry finish.

This beer delivers on its stated aim to deliver a huge hop bomb. Bitterness and aroma dominate yet there is a nice, subtle balance brought to play with the grain bill. A must try for hop junkies...

3.92/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: Pours a beautifully clear red amber, one finger plus of pale gold head, that settles to a ring. Pretty pretty.

Smell: Aroma has some interesting spice notes, and a grassy/vegetal thing that doesn't always work for me, and isn't here.

Taste: Not balanced typical for the style, huge bitter hop bomb with scant malt flavor. I like big hop brews, so this personally scores well with moi.

Feel: Generally bright and refreshing. Lighter than I expect for the style. No alcohol heat here

Overall: Nice tasty hop bomb. A little on the light side in malt, abv, and body for the style, but the hop-riot makes up for that. Not a big "aroma" beer, odd given the giant hop assault in the flavor department. It's generally not what I'm looking for in a DIPA, but it is a ridiculously hoppy thing somewhere between a pale al;e and a barley wine, and I like that. I've dated crazy bitches before, this one I'll be seen with again...

I'll preface this by stating I'm not a DIPA/IIPA fan but I'm always willing to explore and see if I may find one that changes my mind. To be fair to the beer, I don't feel rating it anything less than 4 on taste would be appropriate considering this isn't one of my fav styles.

However, I do love the smell of a strong-hopped beer and this one didn't disappoint at all! Loved the piney, citrusy aromas that lingered until the last drop. Appearance and mouthfeel were nice as well. I'd think that if you were a DIPA connoisseur, you'd probably think this was a pretty decent option.
