Notes: A storm is brewing and with it comes a wicked carnival of hops. The dark carnie leader’s skin is emlazoned with many a vine, including Columbus, Cascade, and Sorachi Ace. So whether you’re a Halloway or a Nightshade, you had better run, for with this carnival, Something Hoppy This Way Comes.

22oz bottle $9.99. Look sliek a typical DIPA, orange, good head. Aroma is weird and sweet like a dessert. Flavor was sickly sweet, reminded me of pound-cake or something. Myself and two others found this undrinkable and poured it right down the drain.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

I feel Tim Curry should be popping outta the label or something... Anyway, this stuff pours a mostly clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, peach, light white grape, bright greens, light pine needles, and a touch of sweet caramel in the background. The taste eschews the fruit in favor of their rinds and the pine, all the while leaving the caramel to wallow in its death throes in the back room. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation, and a fairly sticky finish. Overall, a solid DIPA, but I think it would have really shined if the citrus and tropical fruits from the smell came through on the tongue. Still, not bad...
