Not sure about this one! After enjoying their White Ale, I was excited to try this one, but after the first sip, I'm not so sure. After the first swig, I'm tasting licorice???WTH? This gives way to a drier, hoppier aftertaste. The warmer it got, the licorice taste subsided a bit, but was still there. Overall, I'm not sure what St. Archer was shooting for here, but IMHO they missed the DIPA target with this one. (414 characters)

Ummm... that was good. This was my first Saint Archer and I picked a beaut. This seriously sits up there with many other DIPAs. Could make my list in the forum if anyone ever trots out one of those "top five" posts. So, a deep gold, lighter than the usual DIPA, from a 22 to a tulip. The aroma is there: pungent florals and citrus, without being overwhelming. The flavor continued that floral/tropical theme. The initial bitters are really well balanced with a subtle malt sweetness that adds pop to the tropicals. Nice citrus finish, nor harsh alcohol. This will definitely go into the rotation... and did its job of piquing my interest in other offerings by this brewer. (672 characters)

Criminally underrated DIPA, this thing burts with a pungent hop nose and equally robust palate. It's savory, with bits of pine and tropical fruit thrown in. I'll say it 'till I'm blue in the face -- Saint Archer's pale ale/IPA/DIPA lineup is as strong as anyone not just in the state but in the country. (303 characters)

On tap at Umami burger, Anaheim. Nice hazy lemon-gold with a thick white head, crazy lacing. Bright citrus fruits and floral hops on the nose. Taste has some honey and those very citrusy hops. (192 characters)
