On cask at flying saucer Houston. Pour is hazy chestnut ornage w a white head that dissipated to the edges. Nose is loads of uber deet hops. Cherries galore. Taste is thick sappy hops with a resin balanced by sweetness. Tasty and complex.

great, ballsy DIPA. Plenty of hops, but what stands out here is the sweet malty backbone. Very nice

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Nose is full of tropical hops, lemon and lychee over spicy and very strong dough, some resin. Pours hazy golden with orange highlights and a sudsy beige head. Taste strongly bitter, medium carbonation in a full body, light sweetness, luxuriously smooth body with non-burning but still slithery alcohol, dank pine character and softened, gummy resinous character. Some floral and mango notes after a few ounces, overall orange. Decent malt spine but the hops I’d guess to be more aggressive by design are a bit too dulled -- I assumed this to be a fresh bottle, maybe it needs to be had even fresher?

Hop bomb! Resinous, piney hop centric imperial IPA that is surprisingly easy drinking. Floral forward and amber in color, this is a beer for beer lovers.

Draft at Falling Rock. Pours almost clear copper with a creamy, fizzy white off white head. Tastes like dry pine and hops, creamy nuttiness. Light body and low carbonation. Smells musky, hoppy, creamy, and nutty.
