I had a pint of Malt and Vine V at the shop on 8/9/2012.

Appearance: M&V5 is a semi-foggy light orange with a thin white head.

Smell: The aroma is on the topical fruit and bright botanicals side of the IPA spectrum. There are very present notes of grapefruit, grass, citrus, pine, and caramel.

Taste: The taste closely follows the aroma. This beer is more malty than most DIPAs and the hop character is less overt than I thought it would be.

Mouthfeel: M&V5 is a light/medium bodied beer with slightly less carbonation than the average DIPA.

Overall: This is a solid DIPA but I definitely favor Black Raven's other offerings in the style--BeakTweaker, Trickster, and the outstanding Wisdom Seeker.

Bottle opened up on 6.8.12.

A - Pours a nearly clear, but darker orange with an off-white fluffy head. Good retention.

S - Pretty piney, with some grassiness.

T - Sweet carmel, oranges and some pine in the finish.

D - Good carbonation with a medium body.

O - Nice and well balanced. Carmel, citrus and pine, fine anytime in my book.
