Postmortem Brew Review
Hazy amber color.
Yeast swirls plunge into the depths of the glass.
Citrus hops aromas abound.
Draped lacing, off-white head that leaves a solid finger height throughout the glass.
Smooth hops, biting hops, awesome hops flavor.
Sticky pine and citrus hops taste.
Masked 10% ABV, making it too easy to drink.
Moderate carbonation. 
Medium bodied. Sinfully delicious.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Frickin' A! That's a damn great DIPA. Watch is waaay too easy to pop one of these down. Yummy hops for us hopheads and a big 10% ABV to go with it.

Label says, "A double IPA that is sure to make you as all-knowing as Pythia. It's just a matter of interpretation." Pythia, a deceptive and seductive siren who had hallucinogenic laurel leaves in her crown. Um-hmm, that's right, careful with this mythical mistress. Beware her charms, else she'll reel you in and make your head spin with her powers.
