Thanks to KalH for sending me this one! Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a CCB pint glass.
A: Light copper color, big fluffy white head. Moderate haze and carbonation.
S: Resiny citrus, pine, tropical fruit and some dank herbal hops. Sweet cracker malt in the background, but there isn't much malt for a DIPA. Nice aroma.
T: A really enjoyable hop profile here. Dank, citrus, resin, pine...plus more of the light cracker malt than I expected from the smell. There is some malt sweetness but I don't get a big caramel flavor. Some spice plus the resin hoppiness lasts into the swallow and the hang. Not overly bitter by any stretch. EDIT - as it warms some through the drink, a bit more caramel malt flavor comes through, but not to the point of dominance.
M: Medium to a little light-bodied for the style, but it doesn't detract. Sticky mouthfeel. Medium alcohol presence. Good carbonation.
O: This is good. It's kind of a light-weight for the style in terms of OG, mouthfeel and flat-out hop dominance, but I still think it's classified appropriately. The relative paucity of caramel flavor in the malts gives it a leg up in my book compared to many (most?) other American IIPAs. Really enjoyable, and I would definitely pick a sixer up if it were available around here. Recommended.
