what beats sleet? beer, not just for hookers anymore.
It seems like everyone is brewing a dipa these days and for some reason I feel compelled to try them.. hmmm. here is the offering from boulder beer, their beers are hit and miss for me so hopefully this will sink my battleship...
beautiful head construction, pure white as the driven crap falling on my car right now, 2 full fingers of head stand at attention and slowly take a bow, the procession of recession is arduous, like Hannibal leading his troops over the mountains, they left tracks in their wake and ditto this brew, in plain english the frikkin lacing is great, the hue is orange and clean with some carbonation apparent. this is very nice looking.. and packing in at 10.5% will hopefully melt my inner core on this wintery mix of an eve.
hops-allulah, hops-allulah, hopalulah, hopalulah, hopaluuah
This smells likes hops, sharp citrus and sharp pine, no real detection of malt, just hops stomping a mudhole in your ass. Kind of one dimensional but then again I am comparing it to say dreadnaught. As far as most DIPAs this is pretty average (although compared to other styles this would be crazy out there)... trying to average a base line for DIPAs is not the easiest thing in the world.
pretty bitter, a little sickly sweet thrown in there, it hangs on the edge of cloying but doesn't quite get to that station, pretty light in the mouth feel, the carbonation makes this happen here. the ABV only starts to chat once it has made the sojourn into your belly. very easy drinking. Not the over the top hop bomb as some DIPAs, it has "just enough". The flavor profile is pretty basic but the balanced nature of this is appealing.
YOU'RE FIRED! just kidding...
This is a nice DIPA, not the best, by far not the worst. A nice and easy drinking DIPA. Check it out if you have the chance.

A - This beer is a beautiful translucent dark amber, with a fine, almost-white head. Very rich color!
S - I get a lot of plum, dark fruits, some grape... slight hints of chocolate or toffee. Not a strong smell, but pleasant.
T - Same as smell, but the hops are much more present. Aftertaste is fruity and hoppy, and sorta dark for a DIPA. Alcohol is masked pretty well as a 10% ABV, but there is a pretty noticeable warmth in the throat.
MF - Smooth and slightly on the heavy side. Medium hop oils on the palate. Carbonation is medium-light, just right for my liking.
Overall this DIPA is heavier and fruitier than others that I've had, it leans toward being a Belgian almost- with much more hops. It's unique for its style and much under-appreciated. Maybe this was a good batch or something. Usually I agree with BA reviews but I'm seeing much more in this beer than what I see here. It's quite enjoyable and I recommend picking it up!

3.35/5 rDev -10.4%

A- The deep color is impressive. The clarity is interesting. It pours a bit sloppy with no real head. Bottle states best by 7/8/14.
S- Very weak aroma. I can smell the hops, but it doesn't hit me very hard. There is nothing particularly off putting, but it doesn't grab my attention either.
T- The taste has some citrus flavor. It doesn't sit and stay awhile. It passes very quickly with no impressive aftertaste. It's a refreshing beer for such a high alcohol content. It's smooth, not overpowering. Doesn't leave me wanting a second.
M-It holds a cream feel in my mouth. There is a spotty feeling, doesn't fill my taste buds. It hits one corner, then leaves quickly. Gives it a mysterious undertone.
O- I would enjoy this beer in late August on a porch in northern Wisconsin. I appreciate it for what it is/wants to be. It's very non-conformist, I'm going to do what I want- kinda beer. It's just being what it wants to be, not impressing, but not unreliable either. I would drink it again, just not one after another. It's really good at hiding the high alcohol content.
