on tap at Uber Tavern in Seattle serevd in a standard pint glass.
A - glowing copper--an extrodinary color--with nice off-white head leaving really nice patchy lace all over the glass.
S - Peppery with sweet floral hit followed by toasted grain.
T - Fairly restrained for a DIPA, more in common with a common IPA in many respects. Bitter hops exhibiting white and black pepper with some pine sap spice with pithy citrus rind bitterness. Roasted malt foundation is surprisingly present for the style. As it warms more juicy citrus pops through with orange and grapefruit, and a squeeze of lemon.
M - fairly rich, though not overwhelming. moderate carbonation, bist right with a bit of drying on thw finish.
D - Pretty drinkable for a DIPA, the alcohol is well integrated...which necessitates a note of caution. To me it was fairly tame at first, this one seems pretty subtle for the style to me, but it reveals itself more and more as it warms.
Serving type: on-tap
