Pours super dark brown - nearly opaque with a deep tan head that falls slowly to a fairly thick blanket. Nice lacing. Smells of piney hops, roasty malt, some chocolate. The taste is much more assertive than the nose. Hope hit first with some impact but the flavor of the hops in in a tangle with the roast of the malt. It's actually a pretty good balance. I get some bitterness for the hops but some of the pine notes are intertwined with the malt so as they don't stand out on their own.
The body is medium and th4e carbonation is fairly active but the beer is quite smooth. Overall an enjoyable brew of a unique kind. Oh damn - I didn't realize that it's 10% - I guess it also hides it alcohol very well!

I gotta say, I like this beer WAY more than I thought I might. The big 10% ABV is masked beautifully and the hops come through very well without leaving too much bitterness. Overall this is such a smooth BDIPA. Only problem with this beer is that the brewing period is too short.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from somewhere in the Middlebury/Burlington area.
Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1" dark tan head over the barely translucent dark reddish brown brew. Head collapses slowly, settling at a strong 1/2" and holding, with leggy lasting lace. Aroma is miminal.
Taste has a peek of sweet to start, an undercurrent of slightly acrid bitterness from stem to stern, a shot of dark fruit in the middle, and a cream yet more bitter close. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, and drinkability is good. Never would have guessed this brew is 10%abv.
