A: Into my tulip, poured a deep amber/amber brown ale with three fingers of dense frothy foam.
S: brown sugared malts and herbal pine; almost medicinal; lightly floral and slightly dank
T: strong malt backbone - slightly chewy - full of deep caramel and toffee sugars, while bittered by notes of pine resin and earthly musk. At times, almost buttery, and then darkly bittersweet and smooth.
M: Left a slight coat across the tongue; medium-full bodied with modest carbonation.
O: a well-balanced DIPA - doesn't come on too strong, allows the malts and hops to express themselves equally

This poured a hazy copper orange that was murky and deep. Opaque with highlights around the edges and had bubbles coming up from the bottom . A scant head of loose bubbles that fell pretty fast to a film o'er top and a pretty thick ring. I would say this one was pretty and had great legs. Left good lace but it was fleeting. Nose is bright orange and sweet pink grapefruit. really delightful. Pine and herbal hops. A deeply sweet caramel malt base that strikes me as smooth already and with more bread that it boasts. Taste is really well done. Everything in it's place. A hop forward bitter greets the palate and then the sweet pink grapefruit with a little pith. Just like a real grapefruit. The orange is light over top of that and some catty hops. There is the very lightest pine oil and resin and a nice subtle warming from the alcohol that is leans in to a toasted nutty malt finish that's not as sweet as the nose.
What a superb and delightful IPA. Nothing loud or rambunctious. Finely crafted and everything deliberately well done to give you the finest possible experience in the drink. The abv is 10 percent but it doesn't feel like it. Smooth and satisfying. What a treat compared to all the very loud and egregiously bitter ipa's one is bound to sample. This one had class and was completely captivating. Stately and played down. What character.
