Canned 11/21/17.
Moderate pour yields a one inch white head over a cloudy, golden body with some sticky lacing. Nose of dank everything. Taste of Columbus hop dankness first, followed by the citrus of Galaxy and Amarillo hops, with a bit of flowery spice from the Amarillo. Normal soft feel for a cloud bomb such as this. Finishes with a moisture-sucking dryness. Overall, I think I'd like this even less if it was fresh and more palate-whacking. Cheers!

Just an enormously hopped beer that blows beyond what my finicky palate can handle these days. Carry on and pick up the info you seek from a more hop-headed review.

About as archetypical, in look and taste and feel, for a 9%+ NE Style DIPA that without the darling new hops in the mix (Mosaic, Citra, Galaxy, etc.). Just an enormous specimen that will hop-punch your pie hole out the back of your head.
