Bottle

Thanks for this one, Gordon!

Clear orange and auburn with a thick, persistent off-white head. Lines of lacing left down the glass.

Citrus (lots of orange flesh and skin), sweet caramel and toffee, and alcohol heat combine for a strong, powerful aroma.

High bitterness, mild citrus undertones, bready and sweet (caramel) malts, and warm alcohol burn.

Medium bodied, though oily and with a hot alcohol presence throughout.

Decent and drinkable, but doesn't stand with the best of the bunch.

3.28/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22 oz to a pint glass. No best by date

Appearance: Pours a thin, nonaggressive head with a little lacing and very little carbonation. It's a pale straw gold color and seems just a little hazy.

Smell: Hoppy and bitter, with some grapefruit citrus and a hint of something that I can't put my finger on, but is more generally attributed to dark beers. Something dark fruit/coffee/smoke

Flavor: Hop bitterness starts out strong but doesn't go the distance, diminishing to favor a mild malt sweetness with lemon and tobacco.

MF: Heavy and sweet, but well balanced without a huge amount of complexity that makes you think as you drink.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a stone nonic.

This is a very pretty deep golden DIPA. The downfall, however, is the smell and taste character. Cocoa powder, wet wood, and monotone hops come through in the nose. Taste is interesting but not that great. A strong hop entrance that gives way to a buttered bread taste that transitions into very strong just burnt crust and burnt wood character and finally into an almost poison-like strong rotten-wood esque touch. Not horrible but not my cup of DIPA tea.

22 oz capped bottle poured into a Bruery tulip glass.

A: The beer poured a hazy amber with a huge off white fluffy 3 finger head which left a nice sticky lacing on the glass.

N: The nose was light and pleasant with hints of grapefruit and other citrus fruits leaning to the sweet side.

T: The taste started off with sweetness from the malts and then quickly switched to bitterness of grapefruit rinds and ended very dry with a not so pleasant lingering aftertaste.

M: It had a nice medium mouthfeel with a nice pleasant carbonation level.

D&O: The drinkability was only OK due to the aftertaste which was very dry and bitter, but in a peculiar way. The alcohol level of 9.25% was very nicely hidden and added a pleasant warmth to this brew.

There are too many very good double IPA in the market that I would much rather drink, so this brew will not get a second chance from me.

Poured into an imperial nonic a slight hazed beep amber/bronze with a nice one finger sticky crown atop,big doughy,sweetish malt aromas,the hops take a backseat to the big malt,almost barleywine in style to me.Hefty sweetness on the palate,caramel and biscuit malt with some alcohol zip to lend more sweetness,the hops are subdued to me providing a little citric shot.Another sweet bomb of a DIPA,I would say this is even sweeter than most I have had.

From bomber to nonic pint glass

A: Golden-tan in color, clear, the pour forms a small wispy head that dissipates quickly. Looks like a viscous brew, hardly any lacing is left behind.

S: Strong citrus and pine notes swirl about, caramelly malts in the backdrop. Ample alcohol volatiles carry the bouquet. Smells like a lot of the great West Coast DIPA's.

T: The resinous hops hit the palate first, ushering in bitter and astringent aspects to the profile. Sweet malts counter the hop onslaught; the combination tastes like orange zest and earth. The bitter and sweet notes seem to fly right past each other, the overall profile is disjointed.

M: Oily, viscous. Penetrates every crevice of your mouth. Could use a bit more carbonation to wash the sticky residue.

Not a bad beer, but in the land of hops and honey, this doesn't really stand out. I can think of 5 or 6 DIPA's that I have regular access to that are far superior.
