12oz bottled December 11, 2012...very fresh. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours clear amber with a thick two finger off-white head that sticks around forever leaving nice sheets and spots of lacing behind.

Aroma is big and dank hops, marijuana, onion, grapefruit, some pine and cat pee, dankity dank. Very good strength.

Flavor is chewy resinous hops, grapefruit, onion, marijuana, quite a big caramel malt backbone as well, needed to try to balance the biting bitterness. As it warms the bitterness subsides somewhat and the big malts come forward more. Decent alcohol bite too.

Mouthfeel is full-bodied for an IPA, sticky, good carbonation.

Pretty good dank DIPA. At first the bitterness was huge and biting...settles down quite a bit as the malts really kick in. I love unbalanced super-bitter IPAs and while this is quite good, it could have been better and lived up to its name more.
