Pours out amber with a decent nose of citrus fruit, hops and sugars.

The drinking is a sweet sugar and booze bomb to the palate. A booze and bitter finish follows with more sweet malts. The mouth feel is rather heavy and sticky. Major booze bomb and not overly impressed. Bottled 9/1/14 in MA.

3 oz sample pour at AJ's Beer Warehouse in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a cloudy amber, with some haze, a one inch head, and not much lacing.

Smells include citrus fruits (grapefruit), caramel malts, and pine sap.

This is another maltier DIPA that I'm trying today. Some grainy, malty sweetness up front, reminiscent of caramel, followed by some nice piney and citrusy hop flavors. A little bit of lingering bitterness.

Light to medium body, crisp, dry finish. No alcohol present

First beer from this brewery. Not a knock your socks off DIPA, drinks more like a single IPA, really, in terms of hop flavor and alcohol. Still pretty good.

On draft at Tap and Barrel, Smithtown, NY.

The smell featured balmy tropical fruit like hop aromas coupled with a light sweetness.

The taste was hop driven, but in a softer sense. Elements of mango and pineapple dominated with a light clean caramel close behind.

The mouthfeel was full and relatively clean with no signs of ABV heat.

Overall an enjoyable and different DIPA.
