look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.

A: Fairly clear, medium amber color with less than one finger of off-white foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.

S: Mild saccharine malt, slightly herbaceous, a trace of grapefruit citrus. Very clean, but weak for the style. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins very off-dry, with heavy toasted and caramel malt that yields slightly to herbaceous hops. Pine escalates into the middle while acidity is mild. Malt continues to be featured throughout, but loses some character later on. Flavors turn earthy, almost tea-like, in the moderately bitter finish. No alcohol is detected.

M: Medium viscosity, very soft on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This is an unremarkable DIPA--nothing to see here, unless layered malt is valued above all else. It loses the interest of the drinker before too long, with no real appeal to keep one coming back. While not offensive, it doesn't do much to stand out or even keep the palate awake.

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.
