From a growler. Fairly hazy dark amber/red colour. Small to no head and light carbonation (may just be from being in a growler). I smell hops! Has a great mouthfeel. Somewhat thick but not sweet or syrupy. It takes just a second but the hops hit pretty hard, not overly bitter...lots of malt to back this one up. There is some spice in the finish, I’m guessing from the rye. Pretty enjoyable, overall. Skål Holden!

Pint @ Naked City. Pretty good hop bomb from Naked/Silver City. I didn’t quite get a handle on on the extra rye "spiciness" but I was pl;eased nonetheless. Tons of hops. Tons of bitter, but with enough malt backbone to make it desirable. I’ve had a few better, but I’ve had plenty worse.

Draft, Beveridge Place Pub. Amber orange pour, white head. Aroma is resinous with light citrus and toast. Crackery, biscuity malt flavor with citrus and a sharp, woody resinous finish. More bitter than aromatic, as DIPAs go. Pretty nice. Had this as part of a DIPA taster sampler, and found it to be my next favorite after Pliny the Elder and Wisdom Seeker.
