Loads of piney and grassy hops jump out of the glass on this one. There is almost no sight of the belgian yeast, as this fresh hop bomb just scorches the palate. Dank and resiny with some pine notes and spiciness as well as a little citrus. Really well done DIPA. You do get the booziness too on this one. It is right up front. Looking forward to trying more from this single hop line. It was finished at a bottle share over other worthy contestants.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bottled 11/4/2013. 13 days old.

A: Pours an opaque and cloudy orange. Very tall and frothy light tan head. Head fades out extremely slowly. Substantial head retention and lacing.

S: Resinous and piney. Sweetbread and notable cloves (belgian yeast I assume). Pretty malty overall, the resin character is strong but just doesn't have that bright bite that a lot of fruity hops have.

T: Yup, resinous for sure. HUGELY resinous up front. Might be the strongest chinook presence I have ever had in a beer. Light pine associated with it but it's pretty much pure resin. It is all-pervading. Coats the mouth with a (what else?) resinous layer. Long lasting resin into the finish and aftertaste. There is some breadiness in the middle somewhere, kind of a light, airy bread or even a cracker.

M: Medium bodied, smooth. Resinous (lulz). But seriously, it is.

O: Wow, an experiment worth trying. Resin bomb through and through. It feels like I'm drinking pine resin or something. Even has the resinous mouthfeel (or is that just my mind playing tricks on me?). Pretty delicious, having said all of that.
