A little darker than expected, but otherwise an average looking double ipa, light auburn and brown colors, 1/3" white head. Aroma was seriously lacking anything in terms of dry hopping. For shame.

Taste, bitter, crystal malts, long boil C hops. Definitely less than average for style. The mouthfeel is almost all alcohol and bitterness. Lacks hop flavor. A tough beer to finish.

It does packs a punch has a powerful unique flavor. Difficult to fully describe Unlike any other I've tried I wouldn't place it as a top tier DIPA.
