4.5/5 rDev +23.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 22 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Batch 1
Appearance: Pours a lively and clear amber orange with lots of rising bubbles. Big five finger white head with very good retention. Lots of sticky lacing around the glass.
Smell: Big aroma of citrus and piney hops. Citrus grapefruit and orange. A pretty strong aroma of pine resin. There is a pretty strong malty presence in the aroma. Bready caramel adds some sweetness to the hop bitterness. Also some good hints of honey. Smells both bold and balanced.
Taste: Like the smell leads. A big taste of fresh citrus and pine hops with a very solid malt backbone. Starts with the citrus grapefruit and orange. Big taste of danky pine resin throughout. Towards the finish emerges a big presence of sweet and bready caramel malts. Also some honey in the finish. Pretty good.
Mouthfeel: Fairly full bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Chewy, creamy, and danky with a fairly dry finish.
Overall: A very good DIPA from Sam Adams. Bold hops and a very solid malt background. Not quite on the same level of Hopslam and Abrasive but a very good take on the style.

Color- light red amber. Medium head.
Aroma- crisp winter night in the pine forest.
Taste- starts silky with a balance of butter and hops with grapefruit jolly rancher candy notes finishing with a Dogfishhead butteryness.
Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted March 2013.
