On-tap @ Brewers Haven, Boise ID. Served in a pint nonic.

A: Body is mostly clear pale gold, with lots of carbonation rising. Head is off-white and pretty minimal, as is lacing.

S: Very floral and 'dry' smelling...citrus pith and pine are both pretty big in this one...dank, lots of ripe orange, peach, and tropical fruit/pineapple to a lesser extent.

T: Very high bitterness, pretty dry...lots of floral, sweet tropical fruits, peach, orange, dank resiny character, dried papaya...hint of spice? Malt character is really buried...alcohol is really in check.

MF: Medium bodied with good carbonation, pretty dry finish.

O: A good DIPA, though more dry and bitter than I remember it being. The sweet floral tropical fruit character is there, though it is buried and I would prefer more.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A – Pours a very hazy and opaque orange with hints of straw yellow. The pour yielded a 2 finger off-white head which fell very quickly forming little islands of foam. The lacing that it left behind was rather impressive. A nice thick sheet of lacing that was almost unbroken covered the entire perimeter of the glass.

S – Huge citrus and tropical fruits dominate the aroma profile of this beer, with hints of pine resinous hops and a light sweet bready malt backbone. This smells fruity and nice, albeit a bit faint compared to some of the usual West Coast offerings in the same category.

T – The taste follows the nose very closely. Grapefruit, pineapple and mango are nicely balanced out by a nice hop bite and bitterness. Slightly bready malts linger on the tongue as the aggressive bitterness recedes. Pretty delicious.

M – Meduim bodied with medium carbonation. This beer is very resinous from all the piney hops and does a wonderful job coating the entire area of your mouth with a nice oily, hopy yet sweet film.

O - A very strong DIPA from Colorado. This is a very easy drinking imperial IPA with an amazing balance of sweetness, bitterness and citrusness (I dont think thats a real word yet). Im very impressed with this beer and wish it was available in California.

Sampled at 1702, Tucson; August 2011
The beer arrives from the tap with a frothy, pale tan tinged head that leaves quite a bit of lacing on the sides of my glass as I work my way through this beer. The beer is a copper-amber hue that shows a brilliantly clear, rich gold hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells richly laden with hop tropical fruit notes; lychee, ripe tangelo, bright floral apricot and sticky, slightly dank grapefruit zest are backed by softer, but still present, more herbal notes of pine and pepper hemp that is really a sort of dank herbaceous, slightly green character that helps to temper the more prominent hop fruit notes. If you really dig, after the beer warms up a bit, a touch of cracker like malt character becomes noticeable in the finish of the aroma. The aroma of this is just so enjoyable and hoppy, I can’t get enough.

The taste has enough sweetness to carry the ample hop fruitiness found up front through to the finish. It is tempered in the finish by a pine like and dank herbaceous quality as well as a biting, though not overpowering bitterness and a green, hop astringency; this last speaks to ample hops and likely dry hops used in the making of this beer. The finish hop notes also contribute a distinct, woody peppery note to the flavor. The dominant fruit character tastes of lychee, apricot, huge flower-nectar like notes as well as a mélange of fruity citrus-zest notes. As the beer warms up the bitterness becomes a bit more present, and it is accentuated a bit by a hint of warm alcohol that is just perceptible. This is very quaffable, well at least for a hophead, especially considering that this is 9% abv (I never would have guessed how strong this was). The malt character plays purely a supporting role here

This was certainly a nice treat for my tastebuds after the two other duds that I just had. I really like the juicy, hop fruitiness that is in this beer and it is made even better that this is supported by an almost rough, raw, herbaceous hop character. I wasn’t expecting this to be nearly so good, but damn am I enjoying this beer.

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a finger of off white head. Decent retention and some lacing.

Smell: The smell on this one is really mild. Citrus peel hops along with some sweet malt. Perhaps some faint citrus fruit notes.

Taste: What it was lacking in smell, it makes up for with taste. Sweet citrus peel hops along with some pine notes. Malt sweetness balance it out well. The finish is bitter and sweet.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with fluffy carbonation and a very dry finish.

Overall: I'm not sure why the smell was so mild. It smells good, but not enough. Overall I enjoyed this beer thoroughly and would have another.
