Great scent of malt sweetness and unique hops, like a lagunitas beer with its own twist. Dark orange, cloudy appearance. Taste is very hop forward with just enough malt to balance it. Interestingly, it is not bitter in the aftertaste, just very hoppy up front. Good palate for the style. Thick, oily, not overly carbonated. Definitely worth trying; solid DIPA.

1/25/15. On tap at 21st St in STL. Orange pour, nice khaki head, good lacing. Awesome aroma, huge fresh hop character, dank, pine, citrus, tropical, and more. Yum. Disappointing flavor, like Neurosis on steroids, but much sweeter and maltier, too much so, which kills it a little bit. Otherwise very enjoyable.

Bottle. I have to chuckle at the label (not the one shown here, but one of a heavily "bearded" rooster chomping on a hop), and wonder if the BATF guy who approved the name and label could appreciate the double entendre of both the name and the label. Anyway .. nicely done aggressively hopped, high alcohol ale here. Full of citric, piney hop and a solid-as-a-flock malt back drop ... A+ beer. (#5870, 11/22/2014)

750mL bottle, pours an opaque dark orangey amber with a medium white head. Aroma brings out resinous hops, light tropical fruits, and a little caramel. Flavour brings out shitloads of tropical fruits upfront, followed by citrus zest and a little alcohol burn. Well-balanced, with a big malty profile in addition to the tropical fruity hops. Good stuff.
