Pours a five-finger+ cream head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Hazy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Serious pine hop nose and flavor is pine hops with caramel balancing the 80 IBUs. The higher ABV, 9.0%, is hidden. Decent DIPA. Not cheap at $9.95 for a 22oz bottle from Bert's Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

A: A deep copper/rust color, hazy with fine suspended particles. A quarter-finger of head after a fairly aggressive pour. Minimal lacing.

S: Pine, resin with hints of citrus. Also, some very sweet caramel maltiness with notes of brown sugar rounding out a solid aroma.

T: A bit subdued compared to the aroma. Sweet up front with a resinous finish, maybe a bit of the citrus popping through mid-palate. Lingering, bitter aftertaste.

M: Syrupy and sticky with low carbonation.

O: I think I was expecting much more from this given its Bronze Medal in the US Open Beer Championship. Aroma was on point, but I found the appearance, taste and especially the mouthfeel to be lacking.

Serving type: bottle
