Brought in a growler. Should he called "palate wrecker" but name already taken. Big upfront hops semi unsavory followed by huge lingering fascinating big hop blast. I drank the whole growler without switching off to another bottled beer. I like stuff that is nasty natural rather than refined, like this. I still don't like the water they use but this beer pushes my respect of this brewery way higher..

Look: cloudy burnt auburn color, thick and puffy cream colored head.

Smell: strong biscuit aroma, piney, hint of citrus fruit like a pineapple and mixed berry,

Taste: strong biscuit and medium full body up front, pine and pineapple hop flavors primarily, with a very bitter but not at all astringent finish

Mouthfeel: medium full body, thick and a little chewy, very long finish

Overall: A very fine DIPA. The hop character is what makes it though. A delicate balance between pine and pineapple with a little mixed berry on the nose is backed up by a thick and mildly chewy biscuit malt flavor. I would definitely buy this beer again.

Very similar to Hopslam. A side-by-side needs to occur.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is an intense brown with golden orange highlights and an offwhite head.

Aroma is intense sweet malt not much aroma.

Taste is a very sweet malt with a touch of hunny with bitter herbal hops running through.
