Hop Czar

On tap at the newly re-named place that used to be The Grange and The Angel and is now called The Marlay House.
Pour is a solid looking, strong orange body with a small amount of head but excellent, sticky lace.
Nose and tastes reveal plenty of fresh, citrus hop character and not much else. Decent sweetness accompanies the hop-fix and malts hold it together nicely.
A good example of how the hops can be amped up without causing a palate meltdown. As balanced as a DIPA can ever hope to beer, the beer drinks fairly easily but palate fatigue could still settle in quite quickly.
For me, strictly a one-off, hp-fix beer, but nevertheless a very nice departure from me usually favored path.
