Served in a tumbler.
Man, Goose Island has me programmed or somethin', 'cause I kept referring to this as "312 DIPA" all night... Anyway, this stuff pours a mostly clear sunset amber topped by a finger or so of off-white foam. The nose comprises bright melon, grapefruit zest, sweet caramel, light honey, and a twinge of pine resin. The taste brings in more of the same, with some fruit rinds tossed in, the pine taking on a more needle-y character, and the caramel drying out a bit, though still retaining its decent amount of sweetness. A vein of alcohol is perceptible, but it maintains its furtive personality. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying-ish finish. Overall, a solid DIPA, one that tries to achieve a healthy balance in there, while still hitting you with plenty of hops. Not bad.

3.83/5 rDev -1.8%

Solid brew from my hometown.
Appearance was fine, although I'm not terribly particular about the coloration as long as an IPA doesn't start looking like a porter. It poured foamy but settled quickly.
Smell was not particularly bold. It didn't make me say "wow that's a double IPA." Hops were apparent and slightly citrus.
Taste seemed to almost deteriorate. It went from pleasantly crisp to lacking something. I almost feel that this is a Double at 9% that tastes like a single at 7%. It tastes like a very good IPA, but not as hoppy as something like Myrcenary.
Mouthfeel is good. Overall this is a beer that I would love to order again in a pint.
Serving type: on-tap

32 oz growler from Growlers.
Pours an orange color, lightly hazy, with a eggshell colored head. Aroma was citrusy, but had a fairly predominant pale malt sweetness. Taste was citrusy, with a little pineapple, and a somewhat yellow cake-like malt sweetness. Good slick oily mouthfeel, with a medium body and good carbonation.
Fairly tasty, but not quite wowing.
