New release...less than a week old.

Dull caramel orange color. Not much in the nose department. Decent body, not too thick....just right.

Bitter up front of course. All pine/citrus. Not much of the floral/tropical I'm looking for in a DIPA.

Solid attempt though all around. I'd drink it again.

I was looking forward to this beer. All I can is that making your beer less accessible does not automatically put it on the scale of Heady Topper. I love supporting local breweries; in fact, I would prefer to drink local. It amazes me that local purveyors already have this on an "invite only" e-mail distribution. Brewed with 3 different hops and balanced by a dry malt characteristic, I'm not feeling the balance at all on this one. It subdues the citrus-like hops that are trying to break through. It finishes peppery, just like their single IPA and I think that it takes from the overall experience. In a market watered down by the next great IPA, this one misses the mark due to its failure to marry the hop/malt profile. It's not a bad beer by any stretch, but being my favorite style, it misses the mark.
