look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours with a head of about two and a half fingers. Golden, glowing orange color. On the lower side of active carbonation. Sticky lacing left behind at each level.

Smell: Grainy caramel hits first. Straw with some heavier saturated citrus fruits shows up on the body. The back end sweetens up a bit with some spiciness.

Taste: Caramel malts greet the palate. Pine and heavy citrus hop profile jumps the drinker. Grainy finish with some lighter, spiced notes which are pretty interesting.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation is low. Dry finish with some malt sweetness.

Overall: A pretty middle of the road DIPA. Nothing really stands out, too malt forward. Just feels like they didn't take any risks making this beer.

Serving type: can

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured slightly chilled in hotel glass at the North American Patristics Society conference, 2014, Hyatt Chicago.

A: semiclear amber, good carbonation, very robust, creamy head
S: luscious hop aroma; grass, a bit of pine; lingers nicely; v. inviting
T: grainy, dry, very bitter flavor; booze comes through nicely; needs to be sweeter for the style
M: a bit rough in the mouth

I don't plan to return to this beer; there are much better IIPAs out there.

Serving type: bottle
