- 10 hops, 10% abv, 100 ibus.

A: A great sized building head rests above an autumn orange colored body. A strong sense of effervesce rages within. Head retention is rock solid, lengthy in stay and leaves big clumpy patches of lace on the glass.

S: Nose showed a brief moment of tropical fruitiness and caramel, sweet and wet sense, fresh, very nice.

T: Flavor had a sweet lemony pine start, fresh citrus, wet with some spruce and warm toasty caramel. Tropical fruitiness with a finish of a small alcoholic lemon warmth. Warm pine, evergreen and a fading mint flavor.

M: Prickly mouthful, active carbonation, body leans on the light-medium side.

O: Overall like the fresh and wet approach, sweet and smooth start, citrus, nice complexity of hops that accent and play off one another rather then clash like so many other examples that overload the hop bill. The alcohol is near undetectable, with a very high rate of drinkability, multiples are not an option but a must and given. Tasty, sweet flavor forward hop palate, not dry and overly bitter like the norm, very good and a crime to miss. So far a newer offering that seems to be flying under the radar but for how long.

3.13/5  rDev -12.6%

Appearance: amber orange with almost no head which disappears almost immediately. Carbonation bubbles disappear quickly, next to no lacing.

Smell: sweet and caramelly, more English hops are present, hard to decipher the American hops used.

Taste: Malty sweetness with a mild bitter presence. Flavor lingers well, pleasant but not impressive. Alcohol presence is decipherable but subtle.

Mouthfeel: Much heavier than I was expecting from a signature dipa.

Overall: easy to drink, especially as a dipa. Not what I was expecting but a flavorful beer nonetheless. Probably would buy again, but not often, especially when I'm in a hophead mood.

Appearance: orange in color with a minimal head that breaks down pretty quickly.

Smell: caramel and malt sweetness, with some grassy and earthy tones.

Taste: caramel, pear, some grapefruit, grass, a nice bitterness that isn't overboard, and a milder earthy flavor arrives late. Alcohol is pretty well hidden here, but is warming.

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy in body. Light crispness to start, dry and smooth at the finish. Long lasting aftertaste as the flavors linger in the mouth a while.

Overall: a dangerously easy to drink DIPA with just the right amount of hops that compliment the beer.

Thanks to Jason (and Jennifer) for hooking me up with this. Never heard of the beer or the brewery, should be fun to try.

Pours a deep orangeish-gold with a thin white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell like earthy hops, maybe a tinge of sweetness coming through. Not much happening on the nose.

Taste is better - this does not whack you in the face with hops, but there is definitely a strong, oily, earthy hoppiness coming through. Makes me think of pine sap and forest floor. Just the barest hint of citrus occasionally peeks through. All is balanced by caramel malts. The10% ABV really shows up on the back end.

Mouthfeel is good. Nice and thick.

Overall, an interesting IPA. Not among the top tier of IIPAs, but very solid for a smaller brewery. The beer does seem slightly confused though, if it were just a touch maltier I would have guessed it was an American Barleywine. Still, fun to try.
