Four-pack copped from Bottle King. After much touting, I was rather disappointed by this brew. Needless to say the high ABV gets in the way of drinkability, and the alcohol is certainly detectable, not very well hidden. Strong malt backbone makes this beer impart something of a slight caramel flavor. Not a huge fan.

From 32GP. In Teku glass. Watchin Los Soprano 1x07-08. Great DIPA. Lots of fruityness with the adequate amount of bitterness, just what I expected. Very pleasant in mouth. Dangerously drinkable

12 oz bottle poured into a Savor snifter.

Pours a clear amber color with a full finger of foam that laces the glass as it recedes. Aroma has a nice biting hoppiness to it, but the smell doesn't permeate the room like some hop bombs do. Also detecting some alcohol heat in the nose.

First sip has a familiar rush of floral hoppy flavor with a very long, lingering bitter finish. This beer doesn't hold back on the IBUs, but it comes off a touch harsh and a touch hot. This could maybe use some more body or something to keep the aftertaste in line.

A serviceable IIPA, but a bit too boozy and harshly bitter.
