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

Pours a tawny camel color topped off with about an inch of cream colored, fizzy froth. It's hazy, yet translucent, with some carbonation and decent lacing. The smell is surprisingly sweet, with nice bursts of fresh strawberry, kiwi, lemon, and brown sugar. A splash of juicy grapefruit washed over my palate initially after sipping, along with a caramel sweetness from the bready malt and some more lemon that I picked up in the aroma, only sharper. There's a coarse bitterness and slight seltzer-like feel in the dry finish. The general mouth feel is syrupy though, and the ABV is moderately noticeable. Overall, I really enjoyed this DIPA and would highly recommend it to those who like a sweeter, maltier aspect balancing out the extreme hops.
