4/5  rDev -7.6%

Appearance: Arrives a hazy amber with a decent cap; some lacing is left behind

Smell: Very resinous and pithy aromatics

Taste: The beer starts out resinous and pithy and gets more bitter as the liquid hits all the tastebuds; a slight bit of residual sweetness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Quite a nice DIPA though I didn't get the fruit flavors that other reviewers tasted; definitely worth a try

A - Golden body, slightly hazed, white head has some retention and little lace.

S - A little weak for the style. Some tropical fruits and caramel sweetness with a touch of pine.

T - Green, herbal, leafy, pine hops with a bready, caramel malt backdrop providing a nice balance. Light on tropical fruit notes, but has a nice bouquet while maintaining a relatively low bitterness level.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Finishes clean and dry with little lingering bitterness. Not a palate ripper by any means.

Had this on 2013-08-18 in Columbia, PA

A - Hazy golden peach with a 1-finger white head and moderate lacing.

S - Fresh and juicy pineapple, peach and orange, light malt, touch of pine and hop floral.

T - Initial pineapple and peach, some pine, light malt. Bitterness comes in pretty quickly and lingers but not too long. This is very fresh tasting. Dries nicely leaving a fresh tropical and orange zinger tea flavor to compliment the bitterness. Alcohol almost unnoticeable.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Pretty soft. Hint of prickle and resin but doesn't cling to the mouth.

O - This is a wonderful DIPA from our home state. My son-in-law turned me on to this and I'm glad he did. Ranks quite high on my list of favorite DIPAs.
