4.65/5  rDev +14.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Sampled from an 8oz wine glass, if there was a limit to the number they didn't tell me and my friend and I each had three.

Appearance: Ans ever so slightly hazy brass color with a nice, bubbly white head. Some decent lacing and just overall, drink me now look.

Smell: Beautiful bouquet of citrus, pine, grass, and malt. Wonderful balance of acidic and sweat smells as the hop aroma gives way to a malty sweatness. I could sniff this all day. Well if I could actually not drink it, but that just didn't happen.

Taste: Big, juicy, citrusy hops meld harmoneously with caramel sweet malt. Somewhere between Edenton's Big Boss and Dogfish Head's 90 Minute. The hop profile seems more a kin to Big Boss with the malt balance and backbone closer to 90 Minute. The ABV and IBU's are certainly much closer to the 90. There are some very interesting spice hints with the hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: For a DIPA, fantastic IMHO. Typically I find most DIPA's to have a stickyness associated to the sweetness. Not hear. Much cleaner finish. Much more to my liking.

Drinkability: I love this beer, hell I had three in a row. But the 9.0% keeps me from just drinking these all day long. Well that and I've got a wife and kid to go home to. Not to mention that job thing.

Great beer, and I believe it is becoming a regular. Should also show up around town at various locations.

Serving type: on-tap

3.8/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Fairly clear deep golden with a lingering frothy ivory head.

Aroma is resin, citrus, lightly floral, and malty.

Flavor has a strong, slightly sweet malty base, with notes of resin throughout. Citrus and bitterness are secondary.

Body is fairly full, with moderate carbonation and light alcohol warmth.

Not as hoppy as I expected. Fairly sweet, and I hoped for more character.
