Pours medium dark amber, nice head, nice lacing. Nose is big, lots of pronounced hops and malt. Starts pine and grapefruit, ends up with a nice malty background. Very well balanced with hop bitterness backed up by just the right amount of sweet, toasty, caramel malt. Mouthfeel is good, medium to full bodied for an IPA. Overall I'm a fan. Enjoyed this offering more than their DIPA.

22oz, bottled on 02/05/14
L - bright amber with a frothy ivory head, excellent retention and lacing
S - huge waft of pine, grapefruit, orange pith, toasted grain, and sweet caramel fills the room
T - huge bitterness with a heavy malt backbone: bread crust, caramel, toasted grain, grapefruit and orange pith, some tropical notes, herbal, bold pine, earth
F - medium body, a bit resinous, finishes dry with lingering pine and citrus zest
O - one of my favorite American IPA's. It's been too long since I had this last, and I'm already craving another!
