this beer blew me away especially from being brewed right down the road from me. it has an amazing mouthfeel with a sweet start and a strong hoppy finish with is exactly what im looking for from a DIPA. the pour is a really rich orange gold color with good carbonation and a good head that will stick around for a few. this beer for me has been kinda touchy being maltier one week at the pour house to beings a little hoppy the next week but either way i think it is something everyone should try and in my opinion the best beer brewed in NC.

Sample at DLD '09 thanks to a growler brought by ROBORB and his friend Trevor, whom I'm not sure whether he has a BA username. 3-4oz poured into a plastic cup.

A - amber color with a slight pillowy head.

S - grapefruit, pineapple, piney hops. I didn't notice any of the malt flavor that was to come, but given my experiences with DIPAs, I wasn't expecting any.

T - whoa. that's a lot of hops. this is also the very first time EVER that I have been able to taste malt in a DIPA. caramel malt followed by a very hoppy finish (citrus and pine) with a very, very bitter finish. it seemed more bitter than Arrogant Bastard. very, very good.

M - medium bodied with a sticky, syrupy feel. it coats the mouth and beauty of the flavor reaches every crevice, nook and cranny of the mouth.

D - I do not like DIPAs, but THIS is a good beer. I would love to have some more of this.
