3.6/5 rDev -14.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
On tap at Apex in Portland, OR on 2/20/12.
Appearance: Pours a deep orange, almost red color with a big and frothy head. Tons of lacing on the sides of the snifter it was poured into.
Smell: Orange and citrus nose. Very sweet scent.
Taste: Initially citrus and then overcome by some malt and grain flavor. I expected more pronounced, flavorful hops, but the grainy flavor detracted somewhat from the hops.
Mouthfeel: Heavy and oily on the tongue. Medium carbonation with almost no alcohol taste. Well-masked for 10%.
Overall: A solid DIPA, but the grainy malts and heavy traits detracted a bit from the overall rating.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours golden, dark amber with finger width foamy head that quickly dissipates. Lacing dissipates quickly as well. Boozy, citrus odor. Can detect hints of apple as well. There is a mild hoppy tastes up front with a strong, malty, boozy aftertaste. It goes down very smooth. Definitely a beer for cold weather. Will warm you up like a Brandy or Congac. Very little hoppy aftertaste. Definitely a beer you want to sip by a warm fire.
Serving type: bottle
