American Double / Imperial IPA
Limited (brewed once).
Science will try to tell you that the tongue cannot detect more than 80 bittering units, but this hop centric imperial IPA will not leave you wanting more. So, have a seat and leave your worries to the Therapist.

On tap at Beer Revolution.
A: Pours a hazy burnt sunset orange body capped with a finger of off-white head. It retains well and leaves substantial sticky lace down the sides -- a testament to the strong hop oil content.
S: Bitter grapefruit rind and dank, weed-like growth. There is a moderate sugary sweetness in the nose, as well. It doesn't have the billowing hop aroma of Pliny the Younger or some other great Triple IPAs I've tried from the area, but I can see the similarity.
T: Good grapefruit hop presence, but it has a lot of wet, mossy, weed-like flavor in the finish that doesn't serve the style very well unless accompanied by sugary burn. There's relatively mild sweetness here -- I'd call it perfunctory, presumably to offset the bitterness a beer of this strength would have, but it fails to give the beer much character.
M: Sticky and oily up front. It has some initial bitterness, but it is quickly covered up by the malt sweetness. No heat, but there is a lingering, sticky oily hop presence with moderate astringency. It's not nearly as easy to down as Pliny the Younger. Oddly, it is a little below medium-bodied.
O: Not particularly great. I think I got an 8 oz pour and left half of it on the table. I absolutely love the name, though.
Serving type: on-tap
