A HUGE, powerful mouth-punch of a DIPA. Very intense, but tasty.

12oz bottle: there is no clear freshness date on the bottle...there is something that says 15028...so maybe that's 2015 28th day of the year? Jan 28th? So it's less than 30 days old.

Appearance: Bright copper color with a white head. Brilliant transparency...truly a lovely looking beer.

Aroma: A catty hop aroma with a light hint of alcohol.

Taste: A strong woody cedar-like flavor with some pine resin. There is a rustic bread crust flavor around the edge. I don't pick up any alcohol flavor which is great for a 10% beer.

Mouthfeel: Robust bitterness that really lingers on the back of the tongue.

Overall: A very good Double IPA focusing mostly on woody pine flavor. It's worth drinking again but it wasn't anything special.
