this is a winner in my book. Poured from a 12oz tall can into shaker pint glass. Appearance is pale orange with a 1/4 " of white foam that dissipates slowly with moderate lacing. Bubbles rising throughout the glass. Nose offers hints of pine and grapefruit hoppiness. Mouthfeel is true to its name. Flavor starts with a slight biscuity malt backbone then Resin takes over and coats the palate with pine flavor mixing into and finishing with grapefruit.Leaves the mouth feeling coated and almost anesthetized but also savoring the taste and wanting more. Hardly notice the alcohol in the taste and at 9.1% abv this ones a shitkicker to be reckoned with for sure.

Clear copper pour, thin clingy white top. Aroma of resin of course, but also fruit and malt. Tangy and powerful taste, with some malt sweetness in the middle, finishing strong and bitter. And bitter lingering.

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance: Amber in color with a very thick off white head. Heavy lacing on the glass.

Smell: Strong hops/citrus.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Strong hops, citrus and alcohol.

Overall: Although it has strong alcohol it was well balanced and was very good.

March 7, 2015

12 oz can, tulip glass

A – Deep gold to light amber, a slightly orange tint, and very clear. Effervescent bubbles rising to the top. An inch of thick, foamy head with long retention.

S – Strong grapefruit aroma with some backing papaya and low spicy/herbal notes. A sweet, light bread crust, malt backbone.

T – Bitterness from hops is high, the first thing I notice. The moderate-low sweet, bread crust and caramel, malt notes lead into some fruity hops, grapefruit and some spicy flavor, then the bitterness takes over again. Resin is one of the hop components, but not high in the mix.

M – Moderate-high carbonation, medium-bodied, a bit of sweetness but highly hop-bitter. However, not astringent or harsh. Alcohol, though high, is not noticeable at all.

O – A bitter hop assault accompanied with pleasant aroma and flavor profile. Impressed that it hides the alcohol level so well. All-around this really packs a punch.

Deep orange with a touch of rust color and a white head that lasts for a while and deposits some nice chunky lace. Aromas of citrus, herbal hop, slight pine and a burnt sugar note in the background. As expected the hops are what this beer is all about. Flavors of bitter citrus, caramel, grapefruit, and light pine in the finish. Mouthfeel has enough carbonation up front, smooths out and finishes semi dry. Alcohol is well hidden and that brings about a pretty dangerous level of drinkability for a brew this big. This delivers as a DIPA worthy of a throw in to a regular mix. It's not the best out there but it has a nice blend of classic flavors that make this one an instant winner.
