3.18/5 rDev -10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Poured into a Portsmouth tulip. Purchased in Ocean Ciy, MD on vacation with the wife's family.
A- Pours an orange/amber color body with a half inch off-white head. Head quickly recedes to a small bubbly cap. Lacing is literally spotty.
S- A very piney aroma upfront, followed by a good scent of citrus (pineapple and grapefruit). Almost has the smell of a DIPA that was barrel aged. A lot of sweetness in the smell. Nice, but a slight medicinal aroma.
T- Surprisingly, there's not a lot going on here. I don't think it's too cold, but it's really just bland. The sweetness comes through, though, but that's really about it. Kind of anti-climactic after the smell being not so bad. There's the slight sweetness, medicinal flavor, and the alchohol. Not much else.
M/F- Medium bodied DIPA that feels nice on the palate. I think it could use slightly more carbonation in my opinion.
D- I think the alchohol or maybe the medicinal floavors are a little too much here. Kind of dissapointing considering how decent the smell is. Don't think I'd every get it again, but it was worth trying a beer that I can't get in CT.

3.51/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
True dirty amber color with some considerable hop haze. Head cropped low and fell out. Just a medium-sized ring leftover.
Dank, resinous hops. Lots of crude citrus, orange, lemon, and pithy grapefruit. Some pine. Some beefiness to the malts. Light caramel, still dry enough.
Solidly bitter and piney. Some caramel sweetness, but definitely hop dominant. Aspirin-like chalkiness. Maybe some medicinal astringency, too. Lacking complexity.
Heavy body. Has swish due to big bubbles. Alcohol presented.
So-so. DuClaw is not impressing me.
