Highly overrated. Cloying and viscous.

This isn't quite what I thought it would be. This isn't my style of beer generally but even given that I'm not a big DIPA fan...this just isn't worth the hoopla. Good example of the style I feel like, but not exactly extraordinary. The alcohol is nicely integrated though. - Jan 17 2015 bottling

I'm not that crazy about IIPAs but the hop characteristics of bitterness and citrus here, as they play off the honey are super fun. Also, for being a double IPA, the alcohol on the palate is very well integrated.

Merengue to sea sponge crown gets downright "swissy" then steadily decomposing to cirrocumulus postures. Honey, pineapple and candied lemon complement innately, sugary grapefruit follows, shimmering under a soft snowfall of magnolia blossom, honeysuckle and honeydew, then teasing away from a coquettish sweetness through marmalade to a wooden knot brimming with shadowy crisps of burnt brown sugar, cinnamon and tobacco leaf, with just a cursory sip of lemon iced tea. Fragrant, multi-faceted and loaded with mind food.

I know it is not a beer to age, but it aged a lot better than the 2012
