Notes: Collaboration DIPA with August Burns Red for the 10 year anniversary of their album, Constellations. Very aggressively hopped with Galaxy and Calypso.

I love the band, so when I heard they were making a beer I jumped on it!

This beer is very hoppy with an almost citrusy aftertaste. It doesn't have a lot of carbonation, which I love. Easy drinking on a warm day... until you realize it is an 8% pint.

3.8/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Cloudy, murky yellow-orange with just under two fingers of creamy yellowed head. Nice webbed lacing.

Citrus, pine dust, light play doh and light herbs in the nose.

More play doh in the taste, unfortunately, which detracts from the otherwise superbly-balanced light orange citrus and pine flavors. Nice moderate bitterness in the finish — slightly on the chalky side.

Super creamy feel with just enough carbonation.

So many things in this are close to perfect.
The doughiness is close to a flaw, to my taste anyhow. Will definitely search out more from these guys, though.
