2.91/5  rDev -22.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.

A: Clear, light amber color with over one finger of parchment-tinted foam head. Moderate lacing remains on the glass.

S: Strong resinous pine and ground spices make for a classic, if dated, West Coast hops smell. Toasted bread and caramel are also present, suggesting a balanced double IPA rather than a simple palette upon which hops are displayed. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins dry, with savory crystal malt that cultivates an umami quality not often seen in a beer of the style. Hops aromatics are simplistic, following the smell closely but struggling to display focus on any particular quality. Some fruit develops during the middle, conflicting with the hops flavors that turn medicinal. The finish is moderately bitter, with relatively little flavor or character other than some latent mint that is likely lending the medicinal qualities. No alcohol is detected.

M: Medium to thick viscosity, very resinous and sticky on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This DIPA underachieves or otherwise phones in practically every detail of its sensory profile; even the tint of the beer is a shade or two more dark than the ideal. Taken all together, it is not a train wreck so much as something that sneaks across the palate never to be contemplated again. It is hard to imagine the makers of this beer looking forward to a glass of it at the end of the day.

3.56/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Tasted On: 04-15-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Tulip glass
Purchased: Received from a friend

A: Hazy, dark amber colored beer sits under a small cream colored head. A nice sticky lace is formed on the glass although the head fades quickly.

S: Aromas consist of citrus and pine hops plus tropical fruits, but are not very strong.

T: Big bitterness up front with hop flavors that I'd describe as woody and piney. Some alcohol warming is felt too.

M: The beer has a chewy body and average amount of carbonation. The aftertaste is bitter and try and maybe a bit astringent, although it seems to smooth out as the beer warms up.

O: A pretty good DIPA here but seems to miss the mark in several areas.

Thank you Craig for the try!

3.78/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a cloudy butterscotch color with big, sticky tan head

Smell is faint smoke and grassy hops with a bit of alcohol

Taste is hop forward with smoke, alcohol, sugar and malt, with a nutty aftertaste. Very nice balance with well hidden abv

Mouth is slightly chewy, medium body with a dry finish

Overall, nicely balanced and extremely easy to drink. Definitely worthy a try.
