A: Poured into a nonic, it has a huge tightly carbonated three finger head that lingers forever. clinging sheets of lacing are thick and very creamy looking. I've never never seen any brew do this at this level. amazing.

S: Pungent tropical fruit, thick lemongrass. Bitter citrus nose.

T: lemongrass with very faint biscuity notes. Tropical notes abound. Slightly earthy. Bitterness grows as it warms, and it definitely is more bitter than the IBU says it is.

M: smooth, velvety initial finish followed by a strongly drying note. Creamy due to tight carbo. puckery finale with tropical bitterness at ultimate finish and it lingers.

O: Fantastic, approaching a DIPA in strength. Reminds me of DHF 90, but, well, more refined than 90 min. Really nice IPA.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a clear, dark honey-amber hue with mild carbonation producing a 1/2 inch off white head that fairly quickly recedes. (3.75)
S: Nice pine and citrus hops aroma that can be enjoyed from a couple feet away from the glass. Upon closer inspection/whiff, light caramel malt, floral, and mineral notes also are present. (4)
T: Sharp and bitter pine hops with mild citrus notes, fairly strong sweet light caramel malt backbone helps balance the strong hop presence. Still wish it was a tad less bitter. (3.75)
M: Light-medium body. Loads of bitterness. Moderately sweet, but this pales in comparison to the bitterness. Fairly smooth and slightly oily feel. (3.5)
D: A decently complex IPA. I like the strong hop notes, but others have done that with less bitterness. (3.5)
