Thanks to lnashsig for this one

App- More of an amber mixed with orange on this one with a very tight bound 1/2-1 finger white colored head with amazing cling and slide on this one. One of the best looking DIPA I have seen.

Smell- A nice smelling DIPA. Has a large hoppy beginning and then transitions to a nice malt backing note. Note overly tropical but does have some good citrus notes with some orange and lemon poking through. A small grapefruit and sticky sweet note on the back.

Taste- As I tweeted to lee since we were talking about this I will stand by what I said. The blend of 3 hops give a damp earthy citrus. Spicy, hoppy blend. Not overly bright but well balanced and clean. A nice DIPA but not overly wowing to me.

Mouth- A large medium body with a medium carbonation. A certain creamy note comes in on the finish with some good simple hop bitter and a little bit or citrus remaining.

Drink- A good DIPA from TX. Clean, to the point and well layered. It was for what this is a good rep of the style. The centenial and columbus doing a good job of layering bitter and citrus with the simcoe adding some pine in the finish. I'd like to have this on draught to compare. One day!

Pours a beautiful, hazy, dark orange color. Dark off-white head of about 2 fingers, leaving lots of sticky lace behind. Aroma has a lot of citrus, sweetness, slight grapefruit and tropical fruits, but there's also a nice level of pinyness to it. Pleasant bitterness without being Over the top. Plenty citrus fruits and tropical fruits and a touch of pine. Nice creamy feel, good carbonation, good body.

Still an excellent IPA... I think I actually like this better than 11...

A: This beer pours a nice golden body with a thick white head that quickly fades to nothing more than a ring around the glass. There is also a lot of lace too.

S: This has a FANTASTIC pepper( the pepper you sprinkle on food, not the kind of pepper you make salsa with)hop smell. There is also a little bit of sweet grain with a tiny bit of bitterness.

T: This seriously tastes a lot like Sculpin too me. The hop bitterness is perfect for the style.. some breweries go a little overboard with the bitterness..anyways, the beer lingers for a long time and has just an amazing amount of sweetness once the bitterness fades.

M: This beer has a very nice body and mouthfeel. The body is very full and has a nice bit of carbonation. As I drink this, the carbonation tingles the tip of the tongue and the back of the throat.

O: This is for sure one of the best beers I have ever had from Saint Arnold's. They have always been hit and miss for me, but this one is a home run. Just an awesome beer and cant wait to get this again.

Aroma was all hops. Grapefruit, resin and a little soapy. Pour was a nice clear burnt orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was OK. A little watery. The grapefruit and resin were very strong. A nice but slight malt backbone weaves in and out. This beer is fitting that it is made in the middle of the country. Has a nice west coast hoppiness, but a noticeable chewy maltiness as well. Turns to water in the finish which was disappointing. Nice carbonation round this beer out.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Bottleneck says 032013.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before making its way down to an 1/8 inch head. Fluffy, resilient lacing clings to the glass.

S- Piney/citrusy hop aroma with some cereal grain sweetness to round it out. Slight alcohol fume.

T- Restrained bitterness makes for a balanced flavor profile with the hops and malt equally contributing. Alcohol is subdued which ups the drinkability.

M- A bit dry with moderate carbonation and a medium body.

O- Pretty solid throughout. Nothing to write home about, but I would definitely visit this one again given the chance.

Drank it straight from the brewery taps.
Amber color with a thick off-white head with decent retention.
Very nice aroma with tropical notes of coconut, passion fruit, pineapples and mild pine.
Flavor of peaches, grapefruit, sweet caramels, toasted malts, tea bags, grass, cola and pine. Dry aftertaste with a good bitterness (it has 76 IBUs).
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 8.9% abv is very well hidden.
Nice DIPA with good complexity, still as most DIPA could be less sweet.

Looks like it says 051713 on the bottle so almost 2 months old.

A: Pours a clear amber with a big fizzy tan head. Head fades slowly with great retention. Nice thin splotchy lacing everywhere.

S: Lots of resinous and grapefruity hops in the nose. Noticeable Simcoe. Decent pine too. Yummy.

T: Oh yeah. Big grapefruit up front with quite a bit of pine and resin backing it up. Kind of a dry crackery malt in the finish. Decent hop bitterness on the back end with mostly pine here. Drying resinous and sticky aftertaste.

M: Nice medium body, smooth. Quite dry, almost unusually so with that crackery malt lending to the perception. Like the malt is comprised of saltines, basically.

O: Tasty DIPA for sure. Nice blend of hops with pretty equal footing, though the grapefruit definitely stands out initially. Very dry crackery malt leaves it dry and bitter. Clearly well attenuated which accentuates this effect. I enjoyed it a lot.
