2.5/5  rDev -27.5%

Pours a very nice dark golden amber color, nice carbonation, with a very nice thick one-finger plus creamy off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. This is where the DIPA stops. The nose is malty sweet, but no hints of hops, pine, or citrus. The taste basically follows the nose, but drinkable. Medium body, with some bitterness in the finish. Overall a very bad brew following the style. This does not even give the masses what a DIPA could even be like.

BBD of 03-31-14

Pours an effervescent copper with 2+ fingers of cream colored head. Good head retention with alright lacing

S: Pears & faint medicinal notes, some brown sugar as well.

T: Pineyness & leafy, plus peppery hops up front. Some medicinal notes & pears as this warms, leafy hops as well. Finishes fruity with muted leafy hops

MF: Medium bodied with slight carbonation, okay balance

Drinks okay, but not in love with the hops being used. One & done. Not sure I buy any more of this series, not very interesting

From the 650 ml. bottle stamped on the neck with MAR3114-C210011342. Sampled on November 20, 2013.

It begins with a deep mahogany brown pour with a modest off-white head that erupts at the very end but eventually settles down.

The nose is vibrant with pine trees in a forest and juniper berries. Bready malts too.

The body is medium and quite smooth.

The flavor has a juicy juniper start with a mildly bitter pine and floral finish. Although it is only 7.5% ABV any alcohol is well hidden. Don't write this one off entirely.
