Sweet yet spicey. Citrus and pines. Good balance. Yellow to brown blouse when held up to a window. Very fine carbonation. The lacing on the glass is unique - doesn't fall off but also not webbed. Nose is orange and pine sap. Some malt syrup is present via the pine sap. Taste is sweet at first with a grade A maple syrup and the. Quickly spices with the hops.

A - Clear, golden tangerine color. Medium to large, thick, sticky, creamy, tight, white head. Great retention and lacing.

S - A lot of citrus aroma, in particular grapefruit. Some orange and pine hop aromas. A fairly strong sweet caramel and toffee note backing up the big hoppiness.

T - Loads of hop flavor with citrus (grapefruit) being very strong and upfront. Some resinous, oily pine taste along with a bitter flavor. There is a significant caramel malt backbone. Some ethanol/vodka alcohol flavors start to creep in. Slight burn on the finish with sweet caramel, bitterness, and a touch of alcohol lingering.

M - Medium body with average carbonation. A bit sticky and cloying (particularly on the finish).

D - Nice DIPA for sipping, but not one I'd drink quick. Big flavors, a lot of hoppiness, and some sweet and alcohol flavors with that stickiness made me want some water along side this.

Notes: Nice DIPA. Loads of hops and big flavors. Alcohol and sweetness were a bit much for me, and when combined with that slight cloying aspect, it was a little much. Very nice DIPA to sip on though. For the price it is a nice treat but not an elite DIPA.

22oz bomber poured in in to a SA perfect pint glass. Bottled on 4/13/2012. Picked up for 8.49 a bottle.

Pours a golden yellow with brownish tint. Pour left about three fingers worth of head the slowly faded leaving no lacing. Smells is of pine and hops. Taste is of hoppy pine with a little spice,on the aftertaste. Also taste is not overly bitter like other DIPAs. Mouthful is moderately carbonate with a dry finish.

Overall this is a solid DIPA that I would go for again.
