4.1/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a duvel glass
A: pours a very nice redish amber golden with about a finger of slightly off white head that seems to be leaving some nice spots of lacing. The other thing I noticed is that the body has a very nice clarity to it,
S: nice tropical citrusness of hops with a nive bit of pine, more notes of caramel and sweet citrus. I smell mango and pinneapple mostly.
T; much like the nose, sweet citrus up front, mango and pinneapple hop flavors with a nice balance of piney, resinous hop notes over a sweet caramel malt backbone... Just enough malts to handle the bitterness on the finish, where the bitterness really starts to step in with the resinous piney flavors building on your palate as you drink through it almost becoming chewy.
M: slick and oily medium body with a nice creamy medium carbonation that keeps it from being too viscous or resinous.... The finish is dry and bitter.... With the hop bitterness building on your palate the more you drink... Leaving you with the aftertaste of a mouth full of hops and a mouth coating of resinous pine.... The bitterness has a chewy like quality.
O: this is a pretty good double ipa, I would deffinatly take this over a sculpin... There is a serious amount of hops going in here and the balance is done quite nicley IMO. Nicley rounded while still maintaining an agreesive hoppyness or becoming on overly sweet malt bomb.

Small head, disapated quickly. Bunch of white stuff from the rim to the bottom of the glass after all the beer was gone.
Faint smell of a pine needle when you snap it between your fingers.
Leaves a film on your lips like chapstick. That was cool.
Don't really want to write any more words. Just trying to make quota.
Serving type: on-tap
