I poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a nonic pint, orange pour with a solid white head, moderate lacing. The aroma is great, tons of pine and citrus. Lotes of pine, sweet grapefruit, pineapple notes, lingering finish of bitter pine. It has a resinous mouth feel, good carbonation. Great IPA, well balanced, taste like it should be a bigger beer.

12 oz bottle poured into a Deschutes snifter.

A- pours a hazy, sandy orange color. A foamy, 1/2-finger white head covers the top and leaves sticky, froth-laden lacing in its path.

S- orange peel and piney hops

T- very citrusy with a hint of bitter pine at the finish.

M- one of the thicker IPAs I have ever had. The carbonation is ever-present, making the mouthfeel even better.

O- incredibly delicious! A very unique beer, but still undoubtedly an IPA. Well-worth trying, IMO.

4.03/5  rDev -1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a magnificently frothy head that leaves quite a bit of lace

Smell: Caramel malts with some resinous, piney hops

Taste: The beer lays down a caramel backbone against which the resinous, piney hops emerge at mid-palate; nicely balanced after the swallow, though the finish has quite a bit of residual sugar

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A nicely balanced IPA; just a bit too sweet for my palate

Received in trade from mdaschaf, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a slightly hazy deep golden amber color with a nice frothy off white head that displays great retention and lace. Smells of grapefruit pine and resin mostly. Hints of earth and bread round out the nose quite well. Taste is more grapefruit pine and some apricot with a smidgen of bready malt to back it all up. Finish is quite dry. Medium body and level of carbonation with a sweet resinous mouthfeel. Nice, deceptively easy to drink IPA that I could see myself enjoying often. Nice to try one of the other Delaware breweries as well.

12oz bottle into a tulip. 2011 "notch".

A- Pours a clear golden-orange with a finger of off-white head. Tight bubbles leave sticky lacing. Nice looking IPA.

S- Big juicy tropical fruits mixed in with some bitter piney resins. Sweet malty graininess comes through on the end. Almost smells like a DIPA.

T- Big resins from the nose hit first, but are quickly followed up with a juicy sweetness. Bitter piney notes round out the finish with the grain/bread from the nose. Again, this brew tastes bigger than a normal IPA.

M- Medium-light bodied with aggressive carbonation helps to dry out the finish.

O- One of the better single IPA's I've had. I'd love to do a side by side with Zombie Dust.
