Poured into a Riedel tulip. The liquid is a dark golden amber - much darker than normal for an IPA. The pour kicks up a solid two-finger head that fades to a good film after a few minutes and leaves copious amounts of lace.

Aroma is piney, caramelly, and resiny. There are mild hints of citrus (mostly grapefruit), and a very prominent malty flavor that smells surprisingly like krispy kreme donuts. I'm hoping that the hop presence will be stronger on the palate cause it is concerning to have an IPA where the malt presence is the most notable thing on the nose.

Palate follows the nose pretty closely - super piney, with grapefruit underneath, and a strong malt presence that really does taste like krispy kreme. There's tons of resin and a bit of an astringent alcohol bite. Finish is mildly bitter, with an aftertaste of more resin, caramel, bread (aka krispy kreme), and a hint of mint. Well-balanced, but not really my favorite flavors.

Mouthfeel is super silky. Medium-bodied with a good amount of tiny carbonation bubbles that feel really soft and silky.

Overall, it's definitely well-done, but not quite up my alley. This used to be one of my favorites several years ago, but I guess my tastes really have gravitated away from pine and resin flavors. Still, there's a really great balance here, and considering that they were probably going for pine resin, they did a great job making a drinkable beer that showcases that flavor.
