3.79/5 rDev -0.8%
Reviewed from notes. Had at the Independent. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
A: Deep hazy copper, with a good white head and moderate visible carbonation.
S: Caramel and sweet malts, pine and citrus rind hops.
T: Follows the nose, with the addition of grapefruit and bitter pine hop profile to the mix. The caramel malts come to the front of the palate more than I would like.
M: Medium to slightly heavy bodied, alcohol well-hidden given the ABV. Adequate carbonation sensation.
O: This is a decent offering, but I'm not overly impressed with it. The caramel malt flavors clash with the hop profile. That said - I did follow it up with a black and tan (Yin & Yang), and the flavors meshed very well with the stout and were more enjoyable. But on its own Yang fell a little short.

Poured into a small tulip glass a deep copper/bronze with a nicely formed 1/2 finger head that left a few broken chunks of lace as it settled.Big pine notes in the nose,quite resiny,sweet honey and sweet alcohol stand out as well.A big sweet DIPA like way to many out there on the palate,brown sugar,alcohol, and drunken fruit mixed with underlying resiny hops,the alcohol really hits after the beer warms.It's a DIPA like many it's sweet and alcoholic,par for the course.

Best by 2015 on the label.
Red/orange color, very pretty. Spotty head.
Sweet malt aroma predominately. Citrus hops, and a little bit of herbal hops.
Strong sweet malt taste. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple. Some late piney hops.
This was a very smooth and drinkable DIPA.
A little bit on the expensive side ($6.99 for the bottle).

Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Bronze color. Cleer.
Balanced malt and hop notes blend well. Nothing overpowering.
The taste is balanced up front with a mild citrus aftertaste.
A delicious beer that I enjoyed very much.
A nice clean IPA that is very enjoyable.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy reddish gold with a big rocky off white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is piney grapefruity hops with sweet caramel malt.
The flavor is sweet sugary caramel malts with fruity hops that have a pretty harsh bitter aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and a bit watery.
Overall, an OK sweet and fruity DIPA, but it's a bit watery with a harsh aftertaste.

On-tap at the Brick Store.
Pours a clear deep copper color with a cream-colored head leaving solid lacing.
Smells of pale and heavier caramel malts with large amounts of bright hops, herbal, citrus, and hints of pine.
Tastes similar to how it smells. Grainy pale and caramel malts up front that are quickly overtaken by loads of hops, more herbal and pine than anything else. The ending is solidly bitter. Mouthfeel is very good with grainy carbonation.
Overall this is far from a balanced beer however I thought the hop choices played well off of each other. Worth a shot.
