A - Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left thin rings of sudsy lace on the glass.

S - It smelled like a simcoe hopped beer. Lots of bubblegum, pine and citrus. Some toasty malt.

T - It tasted of tart grapefruit, bubblegum, orange, tropical fruits and toasty caramel malt.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a very tasty imperial IPA. The best Saint Arnold beer Ive had so far.

Appearance - Golden red, 1 finger heavy white head

Smell - citrus and grass clippings

Taste - lightly bready with strong grapefruit and pine

Mouthfeel - stickier. Medium carbonation. Works well with the hop intensity.

Overall - Fantastic ride. Would do again. High ABV so wear your big boy pants.

Best thing to come out of Houston since Bobby Brown. Hops make it. Challenger, centennial, oh and did i mention king Simcoe??
Bags of flavour, crisp, citrussy and no metallic aftertaste that is so common in US DIPAs.
Defo tastes best in draft, even better at the brewery, but a bottle is also great.
Only downside - i dont have one right now

Chilled 22 oz. bomber into a stemless tulip pint. Bottling date 7.18.12.

Look- Crystal clear medium amber with four solid fingers of frothy off-white head that sticks to the glass. Leaves a few irregular rings of suds.

Smell- Woah. Bold, sweet fruity scent. And I mean bold. Mango, navel orange, and lollipops. And orange squash pre-dilution. Kind of caught me off guard, but in a good way.

Taste- Mellow, very distinctive citrusy flavor that follows the nose, balanced with French bread. Starts with a bit of caramel. Clean, fresh, more balanced than anticipated, more nutty than sweet. Finishes with sun-baked split pine and yellow cake batter. Not as bitter as expected. Floury, powdery character and a bit of grassiness makes itself evident as the glass empties.

Mouthfeel- Light to medium body, juicy feel. Low carbonation. Lightly dry finish

Overall- Does a good job pretending to be lighter than it is without easing up on the flavor. I've never been impressed by St. Arnold and generally find their beers bland, but I'm quite glad I tried this one - pick it up if you can get it.

This is my favorite DIPA. Got introduced to this beauty at the Avenue Pub in New Orleans. Picked up a couple of bottles from Stein's to bring back with me. My review is based on bottles.

It pours a lovely copper color with an inch of beige head that lingers and then fades and leaves a layer on the surface.

It took me a while to place the smell. To me it smells of candied citrus peel with floral backnotes.

Taste is sweet and hoppy with the afforementioned citrus and floral notes. Initial taste is sweet and then bitter as it hits the back of the tongue. Bitterness will linger. Alcohol is present but not overpowering.

Good mouthfeel with sufficient carbonation to even out the body.

Overall this is a wonderfully balanced DIPA and a great effort from the guys in Houston. Hope I get to try this at the brewery in the near future.

Served on cask at Idle Rich Pub in a pint glass.

The beer is golden with a nice finger of white tight bubbled head. The glass was dripping with head.

The nose was basically grapefruit juice with some sweetness.

Lots of citrus character with orange and grapefruit hop flavors. There is some attempt at a balancing sweetness to the bitterness. There is still a bold bitterness akin to Deschutes Inversion. Some pine comes out in the finish.

St. Arnolds needs to tap Keith Stone for a smoothness campaign for this brew.

22oz bottle thanks to SSW117.

A- Pours a golden amber with about a head of slightly off-white head that quickly dissipates to leave almost no head. Some spotty lacing, a little bit below average carbonation.

S- Pretty malty, some hops, but definitely not a hopbomb, some spices, below average aroma strength for an IPA.

T- Malts, spices, some light hops, definitely more malts then hops. Lightly sweet, tiny bit bitter on the finish but definitely more dominated by the malts.

M- Medium bodied, below average carbonation, goes down easy, abv very well hidden.

O- Not bad but I was a little bit disappointed by this one (considering it was rated a 4.21), definitely too dominated by the malts- just not what I expect from an IPA. Abv was very well hidden and not bad too drink. Glad I got to try this, thanks again SSW117.
