Pours very dark. Very resonus, piney all the things you look for in a DIPA. Really solid double / imperial IPA. I cant think of anything i dont like about this beer. Currently waiting for them to provide this on-tap at local bars. hope they keep making it and it is available at my local bar.

- Consumed in a speigelau ipa glass.
A: Dense ice-tea coloring with a thin, skim walnut toned head that quickly gave way to a whispy surface. Small rise of carbonation within of micro-effervesce rising at a moderate pace.
S: Aroma of scotchy caramel, more alcohol then hops, with a fade of earthy soil and pine.
T: Boozy scotchy caramel for flavor, peat and pine with a fade of boozy bitterness. Again as with the nose, more alcohol dominated, bitterness is more earthy as in line with a english ipa, but with much more boozy content and scotch ale influence. Some warming of pine on the hold.
M: Mouthful was thick and viscose malt, warming piney alcohol, light carbonation with a heavy feel and syrupy content.
O: Overall while the flavor wasn't at all bad, this drank more like a boozy scotch ale with a touch more hoppiness then a ipa. Maybe an english style-scotch ale mixture. Some booziness factors in, creamy malt based, hops were more subtle, soft then forefront. Not one i would drink on a rotating basis or bother to recommend.

Wegmans in Mechanicsburg, PA
A- dark caramel look to it that is somewhat hard to see through. Had is less than half finger but the lacing is like a base molding. very succinct and intact.
S- sweet toasted caramel malts. molasses and dark candied fruit.
F- dark candied grapefruit. like grapefruit dipped in molasses. Sweet caramel malts with a toasted flavor of toffee almost.
M- chewy and fairly thick. the alcohol definitely lingers on the palate longer than I would like. Warmth all the way down the gullet.
O- not a bad brew. Different and just above average. would have another but wont buy a six of it.
