A: Pours a clear dark ruby with a half inch beige head and awesome lacing.
S: Aroma is incredibly juicy and fruity and has a distinct pot like smell. For all that hop smell there is actually some nice sweet malt in there.
T: Instead of some IPAs and DIPAs that hit you with the hops then finish with malt this one has hop flavor throughout and the malt peeks in intermittently which adds to the complexity. I had this on tap somewhere else the other day and it was way more bitter so I wonder if perhaps they were kegged at significantly different times. Either way, it's still bitter just not as crazy as I thought it'd be, but that's good. The fruit in it is very citrusy but the malt sweetness mixes well and brings in almost a soft berry flavor.
M: I would say this is pretty much perfect for a DIPA. Not too thick, not too light. Finishes nice and bitter.
D: If I didn't know I would probably guess this beer was 10% but I'm not surprised to read that it's 12%. That being said I think thy it's fairly well hidden but obviously one could only have so much.
O: Very nice DIPA. I'm glad I have the opportunity to have his on tap because the four packs are a bit of an investment. Not to say it's not worth it though, any hop head would be happy to have this brew.

4.11/5 rDev +4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottled 5/24/13 at 45 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma – very deep pine/hemlock aroma
Head large (6.5cm), frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing to a 2 mm layer
Body clear, more amber than orange
Flavor begins with a thick sweet piney taste, very resinous, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate is medium, oily to syrupy, with a light bitter finish
I realize this beer is technically past its prime, but has aged well, becoming a very smooth flavorable ale. I’ll be buying more to cellar.
Serving type: bottle
