The beer pours a nice amber color with a decent-sized head. There is a good amount of lacing. The aroma is predominantly pine, resin, and pine with a touch of malt. The taste follows the nose, with the resinous pine at the forefront. There is a good malt balance and hop bitterness. Overall, a solid brew from a solid brewery.

Woman at the liquor store sold me on this and it was in an awesome 32oz jumbo can!

A - Deep orange color. Hazy from the dry hops with a bountiful white head and light lacing.

S - Pleasant and strong hop fragrance with citrus fruit, pine, and some dankness. Not really anything else discernible aside from the hops and a slight fruity ale-yeast character.

T - Great flavor with the strong citrus hop character predominant with some grassy, dank, and pine notes in the middle. The hop bitterness are also present but not in contention with the NW hops. There are also light malt and yeast character but mostly covered up by the hops. Really tastes a lot like a delicious IPA instead of a heavy imperial.

M - Medium mouth-feel with moderate carbonation. Pretty much only as heavy as most of the better IPAs.

Overall, a good DIPA. Even though I was con'd into buying this one for $8 I am not disappointed at all. If you like the strip your teeth bitterness and boozy character that comes with some DIPAs this isn't one for you but if you want an IPA with some more kick in the ABV and flavor department then this one is a good choice.
