A: awesome strong ale color. No haze tannish orange. Zero lacig with a very short head on a super fresh keg.
S: simcoe, cascade-ish very drinkable hops up front with super fine honey finish. Must be tons of crystal malts.
T: one of the best, only rivalled by jade in the east. Back of tongue bitter with very cool american hops and double honey but really well done. Drink cold and slow.
M: good carbonation, and maybe under carbonated in the keg, but doesn't matter.
O: this is an immense american ipa that forgoes the floral hops and is really true to the sweet american east coat style that deserves a 10 out of 10.
Serving type: on-tap

4.49/5 rDev -0.4%

12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip. This was bottled on 01/28/14 so is about a month and a half since bottling.
Appearance: Pours straight amber with a half finger of sticky white head, that slowly fades to a rim around the glass.
Smell: Resin, honey, citrus, "tropical" hops, hint of pine, malts. Big "dank" quality as well. Definitely hop forward; nice and pleasant.
Taste: Really restrained for a 10% DIPA. Honey, resin, citrus, mango, pine, pineapple, malts. Nice IPA flavors blended well together. Slight alcohol on finish.
Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium body. Finish is a bit bitter with just a dash of heat.
Overall: Very drinkable for 10%. Nice hop flavors. Very well put together. I would definitely go to this one pretty often if it were in my area.
Serving type: bottle
