look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into standard pint
Weak aroma of pine
Head average (4 cm), white, creamy with rocks, slowly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing excellent, semi-continuous of primarily small bubbles coating the glass
Body medium orange, hazy
Flavor begins with a sweet alcoholic pineyness, which fades quickly to nothing. No diacetyl.
Palate medium, slightly oily, lively carbonation.

A mediocre DIPA, worth trying once. Possibly, like Fat Dog, better on tap than in bottles.

Picked up a 4 pack in DC, first week of April 2014. Poured into a snifter.

This DIPA has a cloudy haze to its copper orange color. Head is plentiful, three fingers thick, foamy and pillow-like. Lace is abundant and scattered and the head shows some great persistence.

There's a bittersweet citrus aroma on the nose, reminiscent of grapefruit. It's got that dank quality, some citrus peel, and a sweet malt presence.

Ooh, this has a pungent citrus flavor. Almost like orange juice and reminds me a bit of Deschutes Fresh Squeezed. The flavor is alternately sweet citrus and dry orange peel. Complementing these elements is a sweet maltiness about mid-palate that lends some breadiness or toast. It all works very well. I like this quite a bit.

Bitterness up front leads way to citrusy sweetness, then the thick malt middle. The beer has a long dry finish that is somewhat like biting into an orange. It's pretty easy drinking for a DIPA and isn't hot at all.

I discovered this beer through the recommendation of a Whole Foods beer-buyer and I'm glad I did. It's tasty and heavy on citrus, so I can get my vitamin C intake for the day.
