Nevada

3.93/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy deep copper color with thick tan head and incredible sheets of lace. Smell is piney with an underlying sweetness. The is pretty moderate considering the high ABV, with a smack of hops followed by a ton of caramel. Like a more balanced 120 Minute when it's fresh. The feel is awfully thick, though, and along with that intense sweetness it can be a little cloying. But for every now and then, I think this is a pretty good beer. It tastes good and gets you nice and warm.

3.94/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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

A-Pours cloudy amber with a decent off white frothy head that lingers long and leaves excellent lacing.

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%.

Serving type: on-tap

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;

Serving type: on-tap
