3.45/5 rDev -18.8%
650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle dated 2/10/2014, so this isn't very fresh.
Appearance - Deep orange body. Small white head with a medium collar.
Smell - Grapefruit and orange. Toasty malt. Some pithy grapefruit aromas. Caramel malt is substantial.
Taste - Grapefruit hops. Some brighter orange hops before a caramel malt and toasty bready malt kick in. Pithy hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Medium to medium heavy. Kinda sweet, but not syrupy. Moderate bitterness.
Overall - Had this after Pure Happiness. That didn't help, nor does the age, but it's still a good beer.

Poured 22oz dated 2/10/14 into New Belgium globe
A-Pours a golden amber color. Finger and half of a off-white head fades away into a thin ring. Leaves decent lacing.
S-Aromas of dank hops, floral notes, grapefruit citrus, a bit of orange.
T-Tasting notes of grapefruit citrus, pine, floral notes, caramel, light orange.
M-Mouthfeel has a medium body with a semi-dry finish. Semi-dry mouthfeel like bitter in its name. Very good carbonation.
O-My first beer from Alewerks, definitely one of my top East Coast DIPAs.

Shared a bottle with a friend. Nice golden color. Limited head with mild lacing. Smell is fairly hoppy, but not overly. Flavor is rich hoppy flavor with aftertaste of onion, though not too much. Similar to the way Sculpin tastes to me. Not overly carbonated. A solid DIPA. Had better, had much worse. For the most part, enjoyed it.
