4.08/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A - Pours a nice hazy somewhat vibrant orange with a nice inch of near white head. Great retention and lacing.
S - Sweet and malty, like most robust dipa's. Nice citrus flavors, some bitters and a mild alcohol type aroma. Aroma is a little weak.
T - Nice malty/honey and dry citrusy bitterness up front. The dryness from the hops lingers well after the sweeter and citrusy qualities. Slight alcoholic burn, but very tolerable.
M - Medium to fuller bodied, appropriate carbonation. Mildly drinkable at best at close to and room temperatures.
O - Very tasty bitter dipa. Nothing really stands out about it, just a good representative of the style. I have been pouring into my 8oz Allagash cup as this needs to be at least mildly cold for me to enjoy it best.

4.03/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A - pours a clemedlars orange color with a thin, but generous head and light carbonation.
S - A lot of honey and caramel malt aroma and light citrus. Nose is O.K., but nothing special but partially could be due to sitting in the growler for a few days.
T - Malt is prevelant up front with some earthy caramel/honey character that lays a nice foundation before the piney, citrus, and slightly floral bitterness digs in and takes hold. The bitterness really comes on at the end and leaves a healthy coating of faint tropical fruit and floral pine. The earthy malt portion of this beer reminds me of a pilsner.
M - Thick, full bodied, and smooth with nice texture and gentle carbonation on the tongue.
O - The first sip did nothing for me but as I get a few sips in it really starts to appeal to my "inner hop". What really impresses me is the minimal alcohol burn coming from a 9.5% bruiser, it's there, but not much. Where it falls flat is in the aroma, again, I attribute some of that to sitting in the growler for a few days...I'll give it the benefit of a doubt. A solid DIPA. East Coast malt meets some West Coast bitterness.

on-tap at Pandora's Pies
Appearance is a slightly cloudy amber/orange. Head was small (bartender's pour?) and white and receded into a ring. Some lacing at the top. Smell, oh my the smell, is primarily of citrusy orange hops but also features some nice floral hops. Malt sweetness also makes an appearance in the nose. Taste is of strong yet refreshing tangerine/orange citrus hops and a hint of floral hops backed by a sweet malt strong enough for the hops yet surprisingly mellow. Finishes with some moderate IPA bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium weight and body with a slight alcohol burn and some mouth coating hop oils.
Very good DIPA that is remarkably similar to 90min. Hides its alcohol quite well, only Hopslam defeats it in that regard. Best NC DIPA I've had and something I would order again in a heartbeat.
