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.

3.71/5  rDev -9.3%
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 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Sun yellow and slightly cloudy in appearance.

Slight citrus notes, spices, and bitterness from the hops.

Taste is very hop forward and slight spiced. I don't usually enjoy spiced IPAs bit this one ain't so bad.

Mouthfeel is very carbonated and does not have a strong booze appearance though it has an 8.5% abv.

Overall a modest showing from a growing brewery, not their greatest option, but they've got plenty of great brews and it is nice being within a half drive.

Beautiful Baltic amber pour with about an aggressive one inch whitish head. Foam recedes to wisps on top and scant lacing.

Huge wafts of melon especially honeydew. Fruity bubblegum. Resiny pine and caramelized sugars. This is really something special.

Hop driven grapefruit pith then resinous pine and then lays the light caramel malt. Nicely layered for the purists pleasure. After smacking the lips, a DIPA dankness is evident.

Medium mouthfeel. Prickly carbonation aid to sensationalize the bitters on the tongue. Abv toasted just right as this all lingers well into the cranium.

Winner winner chicken dinner! I had to stand up an applause such a well done craft. Truly a pleasure to spend time with and a wonderful neighbor to have. Another great DIPA in the Chicagoland area. Let the hits keep ona rollin'. Tremendously tremendous!!!

Clear and deep golden orange. Minimal head with active carbonation.

I love the aroma. Heavy on the pineapple and mango. Sweet malt.

Tropical fruit, bubble gum, and toasty.

Really clean mouthfeel. Prickly carbonation. Dry and bitter finish.

Definitely my favorite from SO to date. They're really starting to grow on me.
