An ode to the sticky quintessence of hops that never forgoes balance. This piney, resinous Double IPA clocks in at over 100 IBUs.

Served on tap in a 10 oz snifter

Appearance – The beer is served a hazy yellow-orange amber color with a one finger white head that fades very quickly. Upon fading it leaves a decent level of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is heavy of a grapefruit and light earthy hop aroma. Mixed with these are other sweet tropical fruit aromas as well as a light bready aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with flavors of a bready flavor mixed with a good abundance of some grapefruit hop. The grapefruit hop remains strong throughout the taste with it collimating at the end. After the initial taste some sweeter tropical fruit flavors of a tangerine and orange nature come to the tongue. Some notes of a caramel nature also enter the taste as it moves on which in the middle and toward the end sweeten the brew quite a bit. In the end with the upsurge of more grapefruit and a lighter bitter earthy flavor end up bringing a nice bitter-sweet hop flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The thickness of the brew is on the slightly creamier side with a carbonation level that is a bit on the higher side. While normally I like a lower carbonation on a double IPA this on brew it is suited rather nicely by the higher carbonation as it is good for the sweeter body and the hop flavor blend of grapefruit and light earthy tastes.

Overall – A pretty tasty double overall. A bit on the sweeter side but with a good balance of hop flavors.

Apperance - Some slight hazing, but overall very nice color. Nice golden straw color.

Smell - A little too malty and sweet for an IPA.

Taste - A huge win. This beer has some great bitterness and nice mouthfeel. Nice sweetness balances the bitterness. This is a great tasting beer.

Mouthfeel - Nice balance. Not sticky like some double IPA's. Good carbonation flows right into a nice dry finish. Great taste.

Overall - I think this is a great double IPA. It could definitely get better in the color and aroma category, but i feel these two areas don't detract from my overall impression of this beer. The bitterness is just slightly overpowering at the end, but again I think it fits the style at the high end.

A - Hazy amber with a thick white head and lots of bubbly, patchy lacing.

S - Piney, herbal hops with plenty of bready, sweet malt to balance.

T - Citrus and resiny hops followed by a big candied citrus, orange peel flavor. This one is fairly sweet with candied hop flavors.

M - Medium body, low carbonation, sticky, a bit sweet and oily.

D - I like the hop flavor but needs a touch more bitterness to balance the sweetness.

12oz can, best by March 5, 2013. Served around 45F.

Pours quite hazy orange amber with a three finger white head that leaves tons of clumpy sticky drippy webs and rings of lacing and holds a small cap. Beautiful.

Aroma is some citrus hops, orange, grapefruit also very herbal, resinous and pungent, even a bit funky, some caramel malt as well. Good, but not great strength.

Flavor is orange marmalade, grapefruit, resinous hops, a little touch of some weird funky character, caramel malt, candy, mild sweetness, good bitterness. Some alcohol on the finish as well.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, sticky, good carbonation.

Pretty good, very hoppy, quite intense. The slight underlying funkiness keeps it from being great, though.

12 oz can pours a medium amber with fluffy white head and ample lacing. Yeah, the aroma reminds me of resin with lemon, apricot, and alcohol. Taste is nice and bitter pine and citrus, a bit oversweet on the malt backing though. Alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel seems a bit flat - would appreciate a little more carbonation. On the other hand, the tongue-coating thickness of this beautifully bittered imperial is fanstastic. Aftertaste is puckering. I really wanted to like this more - I love resinous beers (Green Flash!) so I imagined a beer called "Resin" to be near perfect. But this one has crossed a bit over the line into surgary territory
