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%.

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;

Pours an amber read with minimal head. Decent lacing. Starts creamy, turns full-bodied. This is a solid beer. It goes down smooth and sweet. The maltiness serves to cover up the boziness well. This is a really decent beer. I'd give it a try if I were you.
