On-tap at City O' City in Denver. Served in a snifter.

A: Deep amber with a slight haze. The cream head is small and dense. Head retention is marginal, but a nice amount of lace is left behind.

S: Pine and anise scents dominate the experience, plus a hint of grapefruit citrus. There is also a light toffee sweetness that's along for the ride.

T: Bitterness dominates the experience, but isn't over the top. The theme from the nose continues with intense hop flavors. Sweet malts are subdued, but can be found without too much effort. The alcohol is very well masked. Finishes with lingering pine and anise flavors.

M: The medium body feels oily. Carbonation level is just right.

D: This is a nice, if not outstanding DIPA. It doesn't stray far from the style's blueprint, but I was impressed with how well the beer's alcohol is masked. A quality pickup overall.
