Three Heads Too Kind DIPA.

Honestly never even heard of these guys. But I picked up a four pack of this at a discount for $6.50 so I'm assuming it's probably fairly old. Oh well, let's see what we get.

Look - Pours a deep amber with a large, well retained sticky off white head. Cabonation is a bit tough to get a read on due to the high murk levels. No sediment despite it likely being a bit old. Lacing is immaculate and quite a spectacle. About the only good thing in this beer. 5.

Smell - Malty as can be. Smells like straight up malts and simcoe hops with a sweetness factor that cannot be ignored. 3.5.

Taste - Well this is a bit odd...It is very, very sweet and almost honey like with a toasted factor followed by a huge dose of the dankest, most well balanced simcoe hoppyness I have ever encountered. Not entirely sure it's supposed to taste like this, but it really ain't bad. Until the onion after taste kicks in as the beer warms. 2.5.

Feel - Feel is pretty heavy with an extremely high level of carbonation. Coats the mouth in an odd sweetness that sticks around and leaves the palate wrecked. 3.25.

Overall - While this beer isn't bad, it makes use of my personal least favorite hop combination. Combine that with the fact it has likely sat around awhile, and you'll come to your conclusion on this one. I would certainly avoid at the normal price, and likely at the price I bought it at. 3.25.

UPDATE : Couldn't even finish he last bottle a few days later. Took on a TERRIBLE dirty onion root like flavor. Scores shall reflect that
