22oz bottle at 41 F poured into a large mug. Poured some of the sediment in. Bottle 9/26/13, so it's a bit old. I'm diving in anyway.

Pours cloudy amber/orange with a biggish head, fades moderately quickly, leaves sheets of lacing behind. Smell is mild and nondescript.

Taste is a nondescript bitter. Some slight honey. Again, fairly mild.

Mouthfeel is smooth, nice. Overall, not bad, just kind of nondescript and unexciting.

Pours a finger and half of head on medium straw colored body.
The aroma is pine and more pine.
The taste is a bold pine bitterness with a good malt backup to balance it out nicely.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable and solid ale.

Clear amber colored ale with a medium sized off-white colored head.

Scents of caramel and menthol hop with some wood and tea scents. Slight syrup smell and an earthy mushroom aroma.

Starts out mildly sweet with a citrus flavor and a mild bitter finish. Gets a little more bitter as you drink it but it is far from harsh. Caramel, wood and tea flavors like the smell.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a tasty DIPA.
