Smooth and easy to drink, not extremely hoppy, just enough.

drank out of a 12 oz bottle.

this is a very bitter IPA. light citrus & malt tastes, but most of what came through was straight bitterness. still an enjoyable beer, but nothing memorable. i may have to give it another try out of a glass and see if that adds anything to the experience.

Rich golden pour with a 2-inch white-gold, creamy head. Forward hops in the nose. Some sweetness and citrus (pith?) as well. Medium-full body with dramatic bitter hop notes enveloping the palate. Nice, long, lingering hops and resin in the finish. Some tropical fruits in the background. Belgian lace does form. This IPA is moreish. While the ABV is 6.6, it is not evident. I am not certain what makes it diabolical! Tasty, bright, well-made IPA. I will return for one of these.
