I tried this on tap at Quencher's Saloon in Chicago. $6 for a 10oz serving, served in a brandy snifter.

The beer poured an orange/rust color with a 1-finger white head that seemed to last forever. It also left a good amount of lacing.

Huge hop nose, and when I say huge, I mean huge. I didn't know whether to drink it or clean the floor with it - it was that piny.

The smell didn't lie - this was an overpowering hop bomb. While there is some caramel malt sweetness underneath, the pine and grapefdruit hops dominate everything. There's a whopping 115 IBU's worth of bitterness in here too. Too much of a good thing if you ask me.

Thick, creamy, and full bodied, with higher than average carbonation, which keeps the hops dancing around on your tongue.

Too one dimensional for me, but if you're a hop hound, you have to give this one a try.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours with a finger and a half of clean white head. The color with a bright orange with a murky body. Rings of lacing left behind at each level. Active carbonation is extremely low for the style.

Smell: Caramelized sugars pop out on the front with accents of grapefruit, caramel, and saturated citrus. Some lighter tropical fruits shine through on the body with heavy accents of bubblegum sweetness.

Taste: The front is caramelized sugars that follows the aroma very closely. Potent grapefruits with some slight vegetal tones are the highlight of the front. Caramel sweetness with accents of tropical fruits linger into the body. The finish somewhat bland with some pine bitterness and heavy saturated fruits.

Mouthfeel: Syrupy texture with evident throughout due to the lower carbonation.

Overall: Pretty decent DIPA but doesn't really have any areas it blows the drinker away. Always nice to support a local brewery and having it turn out to be a decent brew is always nice too.

Decent gold see-through color. No clouds. Not much lacing and a little less carbonation than your run of the mill DIPA. Almost no head, that was gone in a minute.

Lots of acidic caramel or molasses on the nose. Reminds me of GI Pierre Jacques.

Tastes much juicer than the smell, with some spice. I can't place the flavor, maybe it's like a really heavy Akari Shogun. Finishes pretty bitter.

Feels more carbonated than it looked and 10 minutes later I can still tell I drank it.

Overall just not my thing. Caramel malty DIPAs aren't my favorite, but this'd be good to try if you like 'em

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

22oz bomber poured into a snifter.

A- Nice DIPA look. A cloudy oranger/ amber with a half fingers worth of off-white head which fades to the side of the glass.

S- Citrus, acidic, with some pine notes as well. Lots of orange and mango on the smell primarily.

T- Initially comes some citrusy hops with some caramel malt. The hops carry to the back of the taste with orange and mango continuing.

M- Medium bodied, well carbonated, bitter with dry finish. Nice and refreshing also.

Another nice DIPA from Solemn Oath. They definitely do hops well.
