3.91/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Deep amber, moderate to large tannish head, foamy, nice lacing. Strong resiny nose, pithy, slight alcohol and hops. Fruity malt aroma, not unlike a dubbel. Pours cloudy but settles quickly into a clear amber. Weird. Moderately sweet dark fruit flavor with hint of citrus. Hops are well blended and not overpowering as the trend seems to be lately. Alcohol is muted. Body is medium. Texture is chewy. When warmer, the beer finishes with a fairly dry mandarin orange taste. A nice double. Balanced in all regards. Good job.

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
