22oz brown bomber with pry-off cap bottled on July 1, 2014. Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden amber with 1 finger of head

Smell: Hop forward with a lot of citrus and spruce

Taste: Hop flavor comes right out and punches your tastebuds but its not the bitterness that overwhelms; there is a strong pine note with some grapefruit rind then finishes very crisp and clean with no booziness

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and medium body; but what really surprises me is the sheer amount of hop flavor without being very thick or resiny

Overall: For the price range, this is very tough to beat. There is so much hop flavor that isn't overshadowed by bitterness or a syrupy mouthfeel that few other DIPAs Ive had that can claim. A damn good beer.

Extremely clear orange brew, topped with a thin snow white head. Retention and lacing are good.

Very green hoppy aroma, primarily pine resin with some citrus.

Flavor follows, with a very subtle pale and crystal malt backbone providing a platform for the ample hopping. As in the nose, pine dominates, with a smaller amount of citrus pulp and peel. Slightly unbalanced and quite bitter, but not in a bad way.

Very lively, with medium sting and an oily retention of hops, with a semi-dry finish. Very drinkable.

This beer has a flavor profile that absolutely reminds me of PtE. I've heard that before, and having now had Hop Stoopid fresh on draught, the same connection came to me. It's less fruity than the hopfather, but has a similar punch of green piney hops.

This ipa is an excellent demonstration of one of the less understood bits about hops; just because the IBU count is high, doesn't mean it is mouth puckering bitter. Don't get me wrong; this is indeed a bitter brew; but it has more hop flavor and essence than anything else.
