4/5 rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours a caramel colored cloudy amber with a medium lasting tan head, good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, yeast, earthy piney hops, with some sweet fruity alcohol esters fill the senses. Taste of caramel malt, yeast, candied brown sugar, dark fruity flavors with some earthy piney resiny hops. Palate is full body, smooth and slightly sticky mouth feel, with moderate carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malts, yeast, dark fruits followed by some good earthy piney and resiny hops for balance, ending in a lingering sweet alcohol and caramel flavor. The alcohol @ 10 abv seems to be well hidden making for a smooth drinking brew with a good malty background. Overall a very good, enjoyable, and well balanced and tasty DIPA. Very nice

Had on draft at Lures on 7/2/14 in a short wide mouth glass

S-Aroma is pine, grapefruit, sweet floral and citrus hoppiness.
T-Taste is heavy sweet, with grapefruit, honey, and pine with a light malt.
M-Average carbonation, medium body, slick texture and a long sticky finish with overtones of grapefruit and honey.
O-Overall a decent DIPA a great blend of hops and malt that hide the 10%.

3.61/5 rDev -4.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
A: deep orange/amber - darker than I would expect from a DIPA; 1 finger head that receded quickly to a thin film; nice lacing;
S: floral and tropical fruit - pineapple and grapefruit;
T: not what I expected from the nose - earthy; not a lot of bitterness, but more than what I would expect from 10% ABV; the alcohol is there, but muted;
M: on the heavy side of medium bodied; moderate carbonation;
O: enjoyable, but a little too boozy for my taste;
