This brew was brought over via growler for the Super Bowl. It looks superb and is one of the darkest, cloudiest DIPAs I've ever seen. The aromas are very wet, have a very floral hoppyness, and a nice sweet malt backbone. The beer features almost a 50/50 split between hops and malt. After awhile it started to smell like used mop water and the hops aren't as featured as I'd like. I don't know how this one started so well then finished in a wet and dirty manner. It drank ok, a hoppy malty blend that features both in a piny but sticky manner.This beer is VERY fresh yet doesn't have that much carbonation. It drinks very smooth for a DIPA and is is medium to light in body. It drinks pretty well but it doesn't really impress. This beer needs some work.

On "cask," which is like a cask but not really a cask. It's hand pumped but also CO2 assisted and refrigerated. So, basically it's like a flat draw from a regular keg.

Looks fine, though. And smells nice for the the style: big green hops, solid bready malt backbone, no off nodes of syrup or anything like that.

Tastes hoppy up front, bready near the middle, and then at the end there's this weird, sticky tanginess that's bizarre and lightly unpleasant. Dude behind the bar said it was because of the honey they add to the brew while oaking it(??), but even then it tasted off. Anyhow, I couldn't place it, but it damn near ruins the beer.

On cask at the brewery. Chalkboard says 7.4 abv and 92 ibu. Also says reg DIPA brewed on 10/6; not sure if that applie to the cask.
Pours a deep honey amber/brown. Hazy. Thick white head and lacing remains throughout the drink.
Smells hoppy, floral, and slight citrus notes.
Tastes pretty darn good! Smooth as butter and very drinkable. Sweet hops, honey, and floral. I'm really enjoying this one.

Pours a great deep copper color with some decent lacing, but little head. Very nice deep malt scent, huge backbone, and a good citrus/floral aroma. Great flavor! It has a wonderful deep thick malt to go with a huge amarillo hop flavor; there is a very nice additional honey sweetness in there as well (made with Hunter's Honey from Martinsville, IN). Goes down really well, with just a bit of alcohol heat. Great stuff!

poured cold from the tap at the brewpub a dark cloudy copper to a 6oz taster with a 1/2 finger off white head

subtle aroma of grassy hops and caramel(?)

subtle hops forward for the style balanced nicely with a semi sweet honey. caramel also evident.

medium bodied, big carbonation, subtle bitter.

nice take on the style, enjoyable.

Picked up a growler at the brewpub.

Pours an amber color with a small light brown, copper head. Not the norm for a DIPA-really amber looking.

Doesn't smell too hoppy, thinking Amarillo hops on this one. Malt comes through on the nose too. Nothing special

Not very bitter on the tongue. More malt than hops. It's a decent offering for their first, but I would like to see something a lot hoppier.

Overall is pretty good, and at $6 a growler, I will be drinking this quite often.

Serving type: growler
