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.

A – Pours a hazy orange with a nice 2 finger off white head.

S – Lots of pine and some citrus notes.

T – Very smooth IPA, not overly bitter. Malt and hops play nicely together.

M – Medium bodied with really nice carbonation which added a little CO2 bite.

O – Really nice IPA that I found very drinkable, will get a growler of this again next time I am up that way!
