4.06/5 rDev +7.4%
A- Dark gold-honey-amber with creamy off white head
S- Heavy caramelly malt body, with a note of hops
T- Not your average DIPA but delicious. A crispness that seems almost impossible
M- Very nice small bubbles make it much drier (nice!) than any DIPA I've ever had
O- Great beer and worth the extra $1-2 you would spend per volume of other DIPA's. Would buy it again and would recommend it

poured from corked wine-shaped bomber to glass. solid, solid DIPA. if you're looking for balance between malt and hops this is for you. alcohol is hidden remarkable well for 9.5. but for me the star of the show is the mouthfeel, velvety-silky smooth as best from any beer i can remember to be honest. although i prefer more hops this is a great DIPA, and reasonable for the 8$. similar to No Apologies by Blue Point but is better in all aspects. also crazy lacing all the way down, head stayed to the end. some chocolate notes were the most prevalent at the beginning and end. Overall solid representation of the style, would consider getting again in the fall/winter.

A - poured into a snifter with a copper amber color and a thick head and nice lacing.
S - pine, citrus, resin and caramel.
T - Unlike the scent the taste is more on the malt side and sweet. Also Orange, pine and earthy. The bitterness is present throughout.
M - Medium body and moderate carbination. Dry bitter finish.
O - A good double, but its not near the top in the style.

Poured from a bottle dated 7/4/13, into a Descutes Teku
A- It is a nice bright clear amber straw color. It liberated 2 inches of light beige head that faded slowly, but left little lacing.
S- The nose is light, not as strong as I would have thought. Definitely hops, resin, pine and citrus notes.
T - For me the taste is way better than the nose. Very nice hops, with light citrus highlights and a touch of caramel?
M- Easy to drink considering the ABV. Light with mild carbonation and the alcohol is there, but well balanced.
O - Really a very good DIPA. It has good a good hop profile and gives you that hop dose without being overbearing. The citrus is very nice. I tried this at 3 weeks, I had it at 10 days and should have tried it then, but I was in no way disappointed. Well done. I will definitely buy this again.

What a difference.
A - Pours a clear orange nice near white head, lots of cling.
S - Big fat malt center, hops are subdued in comparison.
T - Yum. Large thick malty center with lots of hops to sop up the sweetness.
M - Medium body, great carb and balance. Hard to master with such a large ABV. Nice clean finish.
D - Glad to try this one again. I must of had a bad bottle last year.
A - 4 Pours a clear orange nice near white head, lots of cling.
S - 3.75 Hops are there, but I also get something akin to dish soap and mildew combined. Hard to explain but diminishes the overall.
T - 3.75 Nice big malt, orangy bitter flavor, very resiny.
M - 3.75Medium body, good carb, good balance.
D - 3.75 Drinkable enough. The aftertaste is a little overpowering. Share this .750 with a friend.
