On-tap, served in a tulip

The body sits an orange amber in color with a fluffy off-white cap that rose 2 fingers. Good retention with some raindrop style retreat and a good amount of clingy lace.

White grapefruit, oranges, and pine resin with a firm caramel malt bill. The malt is never intrusive, but is definitely noticeable.

Citrus and pine greet the palate before a wave of toasted grains and sweet caramel. The finish is a mild burst of bitterness. Some lingering resiny, grapefruity flavors.

Medium body with a smooth feel.

This is a nice DIPA, but nothing over the top or worth going out of your way for.

On tap at Capone's the other day.

The beer pours a golden amber color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is prototypical DIPA, with a boatload of pine and dry citrus. It's perhaps a bit one dimensional, but there's no denying the intense, bitter aroma. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this very dry DIPA, and the level of bitterness is intense and nearly overwhelming. A bit more malty sweetness would probably do this beer some good, and the huge amount of bitterness, along with the noticeable alcohol, is just a bit much for me. Mouthfeel is otherwise medium bodied, with a fairly long, very bitter, slightly alcoholic finish.

An interesting beer and nice DIPA, but I didn't think it was anythng awe inspiring. Probably not something I need to order again.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Poured a clear copper color with a foamy cap of white head that retained well and left some lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and pine hops, toasted grains, splintered wood. Taste was pretty subdued for a DIPA, pine and citrus hop qualities, toasted grains, mineral, and a somewhat metallic bitterness in the finish. Light-medium body. Nothing too memorable here.
