Growler shared by Todd. Served in a DryHop taster glass.

A - White foam settles to a cap, leaving behind ample splotchy lacing. Transparent amber body. Looks like a DIPA should.

S - I was expecting a hyper-attenuated West Coast DIPA, but this is far more 'Mid-Westian' to my palate. Dank, piney, and slightly earthy hops, with notes of grapefruit and a bit of tropical fruit are balanced by caramel and icing sugar maltiness. Alcohol is well-hidden.

T - The taste a similarly enjoyable mix of grapefruit and orange peel hops, sweet tropical fruits, and sugary malts that verge to the browner end of the scale. There's an odd astringency in the finish that I don't totally enjoy mixed in with the moderate bitterness.

M - Pleasant, moderate carbonation. Chewy, medium-full body, with good heft for the listed 8.9%. Slightly dry in the finish, with some light alcohol warming that lingers.

D - A nice beer, but I can think of quite a few DIPAs I'd rather drink. Perhaps there's some batch variation to this. Eminently drinkable, other than the slightly off finish. However, I found myself reaching for the Notorious Triple throughout the evening, and it's a rarity for me to prefer a Triple IPA to a Double IPA.

Mid to high hoppy sweet aroma, low carbonation, sweet more than bitter, yum, sweet linger.

Shared a taster on-tap as past of a flight at the brewery; Boneyard Beer Company, Bend, USA. As part of a six-week West Coast beer tour. I rate to taste, not to style. See my blog for more details: carbeers.wordpress.com
