I'm clearly an outlier compared to the community, but I thought this was a fantastic beer. Cutting to my biggest complaint, which is just stylistic, is that this was too dark and the malt character/flavor was too noticeable on the finish for a DIPA. IMHO :-) Other than that, this was a winner. Nice, resin-y notes, quite rich, good balance. I would drink this one again in a heartbeat.

On tap at the TapRoom in PB. Color is way too dark, a very dark orange, almost brown. Neither the smell or the taste of this beer would ever lead to me to believe it's formulated in the IPA or DIPA style. WAY too much use of darker malts here, completely overshadows any hops that are used in this. This beer, for the style, definitely does not fit in around this region whose lighter, hoppier, more fragrant DIPA's just taste a lot better.

Now coined "Dammed" - 22oz bottle with my FW Snifter glass
Notes taken on 01/30/14

A: Dark amber with some orange and reddish hues. Considerable hop haze lessens the visibility of some lightly streaming carbonation. Thin layer of khaki tan suds forms over top with some minimal retention. Light dots and ribbons of lace stiock to the glass after every sip.

S: Smells of pungent pine hops with spiced grapefruit, gooseberry, and some musky white wine grapes. Sweetened bread and some sugary malts lend a candied citrus note. Alcohol is rather apparent. Pretty solid nose overall. Like fresh hop pellets soaked in alcohol.

T: Tastes a bit more malt forward than the nose leads on with some lightly toasted breads and a soft caramel-honeyed sweetness. Touch of dried stone fruit there even. Remains light and dry however with a big and resinous hoppy bitterness. Great combo of gooseberry, white grape, citrus, and some dank herbal weed. Less pine than the nose but it is not really missed. The alcohol is not very shy here and mixes in a touch of earthy spice. Minimally sweet which is a saving grace. Pretty big DIPA and nicely hopped.

M: A touch on the heavier side with the filling malt body and some sappy oils that really coat the palate. Moderately high level of constricting bitterness and some warming alcohol. Lightly dry on the finish with a long lasting linger affect.

D: A pretty decent DIPA. Firm malt bill with a nice dank tropical and resinous hop schedule. Would have again.
