A bottle left over after GABF judging and given to me as a reward for my volunteer efforts. Pours a finger of light-tan head over a nearly clear dark orange-rust liquid. Smells pine, orange, pith, lemons, green onion, and clean alcohol. Mild cream corn (ie, DMS). Aromas required searching; this was not the blast of hop aroma I would expect from a DIPA.

Tastes silky malt with moderate hop flavor and mild hop bitter. Not at all to style (which will be a big hit on my scoring), but may still be a wonderful beer anyway. Hop flavor is pine, oranges, tangerine, candied rosebuds, and pith. Esters are canned apricot syrup, pear syrup, and tamarind. Waxy hop bitterness does not cut the malt sweet as it ought to for the style. A touch thicker than it should be and moderate carbonation.

On tap in a pint glass

White head, slightly off copper and slightly hazy, beautiful lacing with rings all of the way down the glass for each sip

Deep pine aroma

Little bitter at first with a nice pine finish

Mouthful you get a little alcohol at the end on the way down, but very well balanced for a double IPA.
