4.16/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

22oz bomber purchased from the brewery, poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a cloudy amber/ orange color with a small amount of off-white head which quickly fades. Lots of sticky lacing noted along the side of the glass as well.

S- Great smelling beer. Lots of citrus notes, including grapefruit and mango, coupled with some piney resinous as well.

T- Starts off rather sweet for a DIPA, with nice caramel malt notes. Then comes the hop hit. The pine seems to shine through more so than the citrus notes, but I taste both sides well.

M- Medium bodied, well carbonated, nice and bitter with a dry finish. The alcohol is noted of course at 10% ABV, but it's an easy drinker.

Nice DIPA from these Solemn Oath, I'm excited to try more from this up and coming brewery.

3.13/5  rDev -22.1%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A very cloudy/hazy amber in color, barely a finger of head that dissipated quickly. Smells of sweet malty caramel with slight bit of citrusy hops. The flavor is a bit boozy up front with a bit of sweetness coming from the grain bill, slight burnt-like bitter taste, a bit of citrus, and then a lingering bitterness... Not really much of a defined flavor, this is the least hoppiest dipa I've ever had. Medium body with barely any carbonation, makes this more of a sipper.
I took a gamble with this one. Not sure when it was bottled, but it tastes like an ipa that's past it's prime. Almost barley-wine like, which is cool - but not what I was expecting. I have to say that when I'm spending $11 plus shipping on a bottle, I'd like for it to be fresh. I ant say this was the case, but I also can't guarantee it since there's no date on the bottle. Judging by the flavor and the low carbonation, it's the first thing that pops up in my head.
