A - Dark cherry brown with an orange tint and a big foam head. Leaves nice lacing on the glass as it is drank

S - Citrusy orange, lemon, and pineapple intersect with biscuity malt, slight caramel and toffee. Floral presence and slight hints of the alcohol.

T - Lemon and grapefruit bitterness up front. As the beer moves, there is toasted malt, toffee, caramel, bready malt, and a light dark fruit presence. As the beer goes on, the bitter hop presence comes thru as well as a slight warming bite from the alcohol that remains in the finish.

M - Medium body that isn't syrupy. Low carbonation. Beer is slightly chewy from its nice thick body to it

O - Good and interesting beer from Dark Horse which straddles the line between an old ale with its biscuity and dark fruit aspects and a DIPA with its hoppier aspects.

On tap at the Muddy waters in Minneapolis.
A double IPA THAT does not assault the senses, it is well balanced and smoothe. Often DIPAa can be to big too hoppy and leaves one ovberpowered.

Appearance: reddish orange with limited lacing it is almost two orange to be mistaken for a red ale

Smell: very light but a light fruit comes through

Taste: hoppy yes but the malt comes through this balance keeps the high alcohol. Intent at bay. No strong alcohol taste hits. It could be a dangerous beer to to immoderate as it would be easy to drink too many of this delicious beer

Mouthfeel lingering please t hop bitterness but pleasant like your mouth longs for yet another quaf of this well done DIPA

I would drink again and recomend
