3.78/5  rDev +3.3%

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic. Bottled 4/11/14.

Pours a hazy orange color with a finger of sticky foam. Aroma is a bit bready, with a lot of potent citrus and pine flavors to back it up.

First sip is quite viscous on the tongue. A lot of bitter flavors rush forth, but there is a solid amount of sweetness to back it up. Firm piney bitter finish - a touch on the harsh side. This has quite a bit of hop flavor, but somehow it doesn't work together harmoniously.

This is a solid IPA, good for scratching that hop itch. Glad I'm drinking this fresh, as I can sense this would go downhill quickly if those piney hop flavors were not there.

3.68/5  rDev +0.5%

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter

A: Clear copper body with a nice pencil thick head that lasts for a decent amount of time.

S: The hops dominate, but they aren't super powerful. Actually, the meld pretty well with the malts that permeate towards the end.

T: Straight hops that have an odd flavor, with an interesting malt profile as well. A bit sweet and malty, which seem to dominate as it warms. Slightly resinous on the aftertaste.

M: Smooth, with a bit of froth and no sharp carbonation at all.

O: A nice, solid IPA from DuClaw, and actually my first regular IPA that I've had from them.

3.45/5  rDev -5.7%

A: Tangerine pour with a healthy, oatmeal colored head atop with a quick-paced and glass consuming effervesce within. Good clarity, very light haze, while the head retention was sturdy in its stay. Thick, solid band of foam lace.

S: Lightly dry oranges and pine for aroma of moderate intentions. Dry barley stalks on the trail.

T: Flavor showed bitter orange peels and dry grapefruit. There was a quick flash of hop spiciness, sweet malt pine and spicy oranges all combining with a bittering floral hop nature. Dry hoppy spiciness lingers there-after a bit on the tongue with a toasted malt dryness.

M: Body feels creamy, mid-fullness, dry and bitter.

O: Overall a pretty good wallop of hops, dry, bittering and spicy with a good lingering effect. Fairly good drinkability. One of the better duclaw beers ive had.
