One of the best DIPA's I've ever had and worthy of review. We were served this by pouring in a pint glass from a pitcher. We asked for chilled glasses but they said they didn't have any. I think w/ the chilled glass it would of set it over the top as we began talking about wishing the table had snow/ice built in it.
Pours: Clearish gold color w/ light carbonation. nice thick head that hung around the edge of the glass for a couple minutes.
Aroma: Pine, Fruity, Sweet, Hoppy with caramel.
Taste: Columbus, Centennial, Simcoe and loads of Floral & Amarillo Hops explode all over your taste buds of pine and citrus. The aftertaste is somewhat similar to Pliny The Elder. Almost like a sweet Columbus IPA.
Mouthfeel: medium, fizzy tingle that tickles the roof of your mouth.
Drinkability: Keep em coming! I could drink this beer all day/night long. People who live in Maumee and Toledo have a rare jewell in their backyard.

I would put this fabulous DIPA somewhere between Bell's Two Hearted, Bell's amazing Hop Slam, and the Weyerbacher Simcoe double. And that's a great location!
If you're an IPA fan and live anywhere near Toledo, you have got to try it! Growlers available. I am told that the next batch will be ready by the New Year 2010. The only problem is drinkability. Two or three of these and there's not much energy left for the rest of the day.
Cloudy gray appearance. Bitter and hoppy with that beautiful citrusy taste at the end. Big and bold throughout.
