I am not afraid of the dank. I just wish it was dank-er. If that is such a thing.

This poured a rich caramel-amber hue. The aroma comes off with a strong piney note, hints of what’s to come. I found the flavor to be piney and resiny with some caramel malt balancing it off. Finishes dry, and a little sticky.

Serving type: on-tap

Growler from the brewery.

A clear copper with a dense off white head with excellent retention and nice lacing, this looks great. The nose is dominated by dank, weedy hops. Intense pine resin, grapefruit pith, candied oranges, weed and dried mango are present. A mild sweetness is also perceived. Excellent.

The palate opens with a rather bracing bitterness with intense flavors of pine , grapefruit, candied orange, pine sap and a little spruce. Dank, resiny, fruity, this beer packs a mean punch. Earthy bitterness on the mid palate. Moderate malt sweetness is present on the mid palate, tempering the bitterness. A little alcohol is noticeable on the finish, which is dank, resiny and bitter. Medium in body and moderately carbonated, this beer is excellent.

Tried this at the brewpub, as well. Pours a nice bright amber. It's quite clear, transparent. Medium white head. Dissipates after a bit. Just a big orangey amber glass. The aroma is sweetly dank with big fruit flavors. Pine needles, peaches, mangoes, white grapes, pineapples, raspberries. Nice and juicy. Honeysuckle with a touch of grass. Background of simple malt with a bit of caramel, only really noticeable relative to other Cellarmaker hoppy beers. Taste is full of hop flavor with moderate bitterness for a DIPA. Grass, fruit and pine in the finish. Grape skin, pineapple, tangerine, peach, raspberry. Starts out with sweet fruit, but it's a pretty dry beer for 8.7% abv. The mouthfeel is relatively smooth, carbonation a bit lower than normal for them. Nice hop oiliness. Round full flavor coats the mouth pleasantly. Really nice DIPA. I'd take some of the smaller hoppy beers from CM over it, but that's more personal taste. It's still an excellent beer.
