Pours a clear dark amber, with a massive light tan head. Incredible lacing. Aromas of fragrant flowers, and brown sugar. Taste begins with a huge caramel malt flavor, then some lemon, then a massive pine cone, resin finish. Mouthfeel is rich. Overall a good beer, though I prefer more citrus in my IPA's.

Part of the 2013 Samuel Adams LongShot Pack - Bullock's Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a rust-toned, amber body with brilliant clarity and a medium-small, brief, near white head.

Smell: Toasted breadcrusts (and touches of dark brown sugar) superimposed with hoppy notes smelling a bit spicy, woodsy, leafy, but, also a little bit fruity (grapefruit).

Taste: Breadcrusts, moderately toasted, with a mingled of caramel and brown sugar sweetness. Then, in comes the spicy, lightly resinous, woodsy, leafy hops with, again, like with the aroma, some fruitiness, citrus leaning, mainly grapefruit. Medium-high bitterness. Small snippet of garlic chives. Tangy, bitter, hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, not-quite-chewy mouthfeel.

Overall: Not a bad bitter brew.

Big off white to very light tan head that slowly settles above a super clear bronze-copper-reddish colored beer.

Big floral, citrus, and piney hops aroma that just keeps coming off this beer.

Slight bitterness from the hops with the piney and slight citrus tastes coming through.

A dryish aftertaste with some nice hops aspects lingering about with this medium bodied double IPA.

As a side note, my glass is 3/4's empty and their is still a nice little off white biscuity head floating above the last few ounces of my beer.

A pretty good beer that I would buy a six pack of now and again if it were available in 6's.

Pours copper withed head. 2 fingers of cream colored head. Great head retention & good lacing

S: Leafy hops, faint pear aroma, & apples

T: Follows the nose, caramel & bready notes & kiss of pine up front. Big time leafy hops, pears&a touch of caramel sweetness, plus woody hop drynef honey malt ss as this warms. Finishes fruitty, dry, sweet & with a bit of biscuitty malt

MF: A bit chewy, slight carbonation & nice balance, slight stickyness

An alright DIPA, not a bif fan of the hop profile
