Big thanks to Rutager for this extra.

Poured from a bomber, bottled Nov. 2, 2012 (lot 30773912).

Appearance: Real bright orange body, totally clear with a huge 3-4 finger head that dishes out a good deal of lacing.

Smell: Pouring in the glass releases raw hops as well as citrus and orange but leaning more to the sweet side than bitter.

Taste: Cedar plank, sweet tangerine, resin-like hops, pervasive, kept in check by good malt backbone, spicy notes int he tail end, candied a bit.

Mouthfeel: Where as the bitterness wasn't felt in the flavor, it sure is in the feel and it's welcomed. Starts smooth and creamy but moves rapidly to a solid body that is intense and leaves a lingering finish.

Overall: A very good DIPA. Would recommend this for sure.

Bottle to Lawson's sniffer

A:Orangey and golden colored that is completely translucent with a white head that leaves a thick lacing around the top of the glass, not very impressive.

S: Im surprised that the first smell that I get which is malt (there is not bottle date as that is the first thing that I suspected), but there is definitely hops there and they actually smell fresh just not as pungent as I would expect from "hop Stoopid"

T: The taste is actually much better then the nose there is lots of hop tastes nothing i can really pin point not circusy but more like fresh hop flavor and it doesn't taste fake though it is a little bit malty its pretty well balanced

M: The feel is pretty crisp and clean but very oily and somewhat resinous which is impressive considering the lack of hops use. On the other hand it is quite thin and watery but that makes it quite drinkable and the alcohol is no where in site. In conclusion it works for the beer and the style.

O: So i ended up being pleasantly surprised with this beer the taste and the mouthfeel make up for the smell and the look it is pretty solid considering the use of hop extract not my favorite but for the price it is definitely worth a try if not a cheap go to.
