    Ehh... it's like papery molasses and mellow tobacco. I remember loving this stuff fresh out the gate but now it has me shrugging.

    Just finished packing up a big trade to go out tomorrow, winding down with a Surly Furious (or 2) before bed.

    Not bad. Nothing life-changing, but still pretty solid. It's better than the previous reviews stated...

    I have to be honest. I've never found any DIPA to be life-changing, but that's my personal bias. Extremely tasty, I certainly enjoy the style, but as far as complexity I look to other styles.

    Started tonight with some Furious, then upped the lupulin ante with Hopslam. Followed those with a bottle of Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Stout, the last of which I'm pairing with some coconut cake. Excellent beers all around, and all thanks to MinnesotaMoon.

    Next, as tradition, I'll be switching to a nice single malt scotch while I watch this week's Archer.

    Good, not great. It's a hell of a lot better than that Burning Bush abomination.
