4.04/5 rDev +3.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Interesting, expected something stronger. Not necessarily a bad thing. Robust without over powering hoppines. Malty start is as vibrant as some of the great imperial IPAs out there. Though enjoyable, I preferred the back woods bastard from founders. Cheers!

3.81/5 rDev -2.3%

Pours rusty amber and red with a this line of beige bubbles. Not really enough here to count on any head retention and a few flecks of 'lace'.
Caramel notes out of the malt that is more of a corn syrup and alcohol mixture. Hops provide a dark tangerine and apricot tone with some apple juice mixing with the sugars.
Malt is way lighter here than on the nose, thank goodness, a nice bready quality with backing of caramel and molasses. Hops hit with dark orange citrus and an herbal backing, somewhat onion-y and gnarly that carries through the bitterness in the finish. Herbal and earthy in the aftertaste that compliments the bitterness.
Smooth carbonation, a sipper but not overly heavy handed. Solid over the palate and you can feel a nice viscosity allowing the hops to stick. Alcohol is present but well under what I feared.
A sipping DIPA with a crazy amount of malt and surprisingly enough hops to balance, though it doesn't particularly excel in that department. I was fearing the size of the beer but it is drinkable in its own way.

The color and smell of the beer is great. It has a nice caramel color and a sweet hoppy smell. At 12% the alcohol content is a little high for my liking, but its a nice beer to sip on for a lazy cool afternoon. To me this is more of a fall beer to drink at night.
