4.03/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. can (Best Before 26NOV2012) into a snifter glass.

A strong pour yields a 1-finger cream-colored head that fades after a couple minutes to a thin dusting and thin foam collar. The body is a translucent orange amber with very few carbonation bubbles. Some decent lacing can be seen between sips but seems to have trouble fighting against gravity.

The nose certainly has a lot going on. Of course, the most noticeable aroma is pine - sticky, resinous pine. Once you get past this, you can discover aromas of orange-like citrus and sweet caramel. After swirling the beer a bit, some sharp alcohol notes become apparent.

Almost perfectly telegraphed from the nose, each sip starts with sticky pine flavors, followed closely by orange and mango citrus flavors. These are all wrapped in a sweet caramel shell with a lingering alcohol heat that singes the tongue. As the beer is swallowed, the flavors quickly vanish. There truly is an odd void of flavor after the swallow. The alcohol warmth then begins to reemerge in the back of the throat. After this takes hold, a grassy bitterness descends upon the rest of the mouth.

Medium to full bodied with great carbonation, this beer is amazingly drinkable considering its 9.1% ABV. The body is thick and sticky, which allows all the flavors to properly present themselves and make an impression. The carbonation is good and fizzy, helping to cut the stickiness of the body and increase the carbonation. The swallow is good and crisp but leads to a dry finish.

3.91/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

pours cloudy, dark orange, little to no head.

Smell is fruity as in apricot and peach. Some of the alcohol is picked up. Bubble gum. Light vanilla scent as well.

The name of the beer tells the tale of the first taste. Resinous, bitter bite along with caramel and slight toffee and a little alcohol burn. A bit of peppery spice. Heavy hop bitterness dominates this one. maybe some of the floral variety.

Thick and heavy mouthfeel. very long finish. Medium carbonation.

Im not sure how I feel about this one. Its heavy and bitter for sure but tough to pick up on much more. It does have the malt balance. I prefer some more citrus in my DIPAs but this is ok for a change up. tough to have more than one in a sitting. Would have again but not going to go looking for this one.

4.11/5  rDev +1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.5

On tap at the Local Taphouse during Sixpoint AleStars session.

Pours a pale golden colour. White webbed bubbly head. Lace is nice and clingy. Looks OK.

Smells lovely. Sherbet with rosewater, lychee and lime. Musky, chalky, vanilla. Sweet, tangy, resiny, good.

Taste is resinous, pretty much from the start. Touch of caramel malt, with some vanilla notes. Resins come on midway, big and developing more bitterness on the back, big and resinous but never quite reaches that horrible ashiness, just huge resin flavour without the ashy bitterness. Quite amazing.

Body decently full. Bit of pull from the hops and quite a big booze note. OK.

Very impressive IPA character, enormous without the palate crushing edge. Beautiful.

Serving type: on-tap
