Poured from a 700ml bottle into a La Fin Du Monde tulip glass.

The color is hazy copper/orange with two finger of foamy white head that leave nothing behind.

The smell is a bit of a funky hop aroma in the nose at first. Just poring it gives off hops in the nose. Upon getting a closer sniff there is some deep biscuit aroma and some earthy hop aroma.

The taste is lip smacking hops at first. The name does not lie as bitterness is the major player here. There is some bright citrus flavor that is packed in the lining of the bitterness. Some green grass or pine flavor comes out and then leads into a malty backbone.

The feel of this is a bit larger then expected and is a bit complex. It has a good drinkable body and ends with a big bitterness that makes my mouth tingle.

Price: $8.99 Served In: Tulip

*Uploading my old reviews, this one has a review date of: 7-26-07. If I can acquire the beer again I will re-review it*

Poured into my Duvel tulip glass. It has a nice two fingers of head and has great retention, a very attractive beer in the glass. The color is a vibrant, slightly reddish orange.

The aroma is incredible. I smell lemons, huge amounts of grapefruit, and cherry, it is very citrus yet has a strong sweet malt profile to back it up.

The taste is slightly bitter, with citrus being very pronounced but the malt prevents this from being too bitter.

It drinks fairly well, but it does feel like a big beer. I feel that the bitterness from the hops hides the 10% alcohol fairly well.

I’m not much of a hop head or a lover of DIPA’s but this is one I would definitely buy and drink again.

A: Poured a dark honey color into my tulip with an inch of head that disappeared quickly. A little lacing stuck around as it went down.

S: Smells of slight hops with some nice malts which keep it pretty balanced.

T: Starts off very smooth. You then get a small blast off hops, but it stays smooth with some sweetness barely coming through. Has a piney hop aftertaste.

M: Very smooth body with maybe not quite enough carbonation. But that's being picky.

Wow! Just realized this was a DIPA! Very smooth and not out of your mind hoppy. Will definitely be seeking this one out again.

Big thanks to Westsidethreat for the growler.

A - Pours a nice clean and clear copper colored body. Some bubbles are rising to the top and some are clinging on the sides of the glass. One finger tan head is made up of varying sized bubbles. Nice sticky lacing.

S - Big, bountiful, floral hops. Grapefruit and pine hops explode fromt he glass to the nose. Sweet malt backbone to attempt to balance it out.

T - It's like the hops are creeping towards my tongue here. Starts swet with hints of strawberries and a touch of caramel. Gradually increasing hops come to a bitter hop explosion. Mostly grapefruit flavors with a touch of pine. Pine hop finish and aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied with sticky hops. Bubbley, inabrasive carbonation.

D - Nice DIPA that really explodes with hops. This beer is made with the hophead (like me) in mind.
