3.8/5 rDev -6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Poured from a 12oz. can into a pint glass. Color is thick, unfiltered reddish-brown, the color of pine tar to match its name. A beautiful 2-finger, dense ecru head appeared with some nice lacing. This is a pretty beer to look at!
S: Hoppy, with some nice sweet, mild malt notes underneath. Pine, citrus, flowers, with hints of pipe tobacco and some light cherry/vanilla underneath. A bit of alcohol esters, but not overwhelming. Subtle, but inviting nose.
T: The flavor has light malts on the front of the tongue, with a well-balanced middle, and dry, hoppy finish. Well-balanced in that there is not one dominant flavor, though the dry finish is a tad rough on the aftertaste (not recommended for those who are dry hop-averse.) Flavors of wood, citrus and pine, with floral notes and some nice malted barley undertones. This beer is tasty, but it dries you mouth out, and is probably best consumed in a shoulder season (spring on fall.)
M: Slightly chewy, in a good way, with an even-keeled overall in-mouth impression, and a scorchingly dry afterfeel. It has a good presence, that adds to its attractiveness.
O: A very good offering in the DIPA category, if not top of the class. It's everything one should expect of the varietal, with nothing too new to add. For a beer of 9.1% abv, I couldn't taste the hooch, though I still wouldn't call it "sessionable" because of the amount of flavors and dry bite.

4.31/5 rDev +5.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Purchased from the packey best by 05092015.
A: cloudy yellow with a thin ring of bubbles, that lacing hangs around forever.
S: Middle roasted malts, spicy resinous pine needles with bitter citrus. Mild peppery yeast and everything just blends well. Very well presented IPA notes.
T: Follows nose. The mild weediness, pine and citrus peek up and stay up. bitter-orangy-grapefruity finish.
M: Semi-creamy, coating well with a smooth, velvety finish. Some signficant bitter notes poke up and subside in the dry, creamy finish. It is a HUGE finish on the dry and bitter side.
O: Give me more of THIS. Between citrus, bitter, dry, and pine....this is a balance on the edge of too much. But it is not.
