This is a very solid DIPA. I really enjoy the nice fruit flavor with a touch of sweetness that starts out the flavor. That is was what distinguishes if from the other. A heavy yet smooth bitterness, lingers much like the others. Also the touch of unique fruit in the aroma is also a bit of distinguishing note. Standard appearance for style - cloudy yellow and white sticky cap. Nice full feel with softness in the carbonation.
This is better than most.

12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams glass. Pours very clear golden with a fizzy 1 finger head of white foam. Faded into spotty lacing fairly quickly. Smells very nice: pine, hops, citrus, grapefruit, orange, and maybe hints of green apples strawberries. Light, crips, and creamy mouthfeel. Initial taste brings a lot of hop and pine presence. Citrus and malt more on the back end. Decent bitterness.

This beer definitely drinks like a 9.5%'er. Not a bad thing, but sometimes breweries do a good job of covering a high abv by adding this & that. Not this one. This beer has a big, piney, in-your-face taste that is all that an IPA should be. That being said, nothing really stood out to me as incredible. This beer is good, but I had to go the online route to acquire it, and while it IS good, I don't think I'll be buying it again anytime soon. If it were available to me locally, then yeah.
