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.

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.
