look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

S- Poured from a 12oz bottle into a 16oz (Odell branded) snifter (bottled on date: April 14, 2013)

A- Copper/Honey/Deep Golden color with a less than one finger's worth of head.

S- Caramel sweetness, tropical fruit and piney bitterness

T- Pine and sweet caramael malt...the palate is consumed by malt and hops in equal amounts...a very malt-heavy double IPA (but those who understand who know the style), this is a solid example.
M- Enough carbonation to keep it from becoming cloying, but this is a brew that is enjoyed colder, as it becomes a bit boozy when it warms.

O- I would suggest getting this as fresh as possible to get the most out of the dry hopping aroma/flavor.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a mildly hazy copper color. The head is three fingers high and offwhite in shading, quickly receding to reveal rings of lacing on the glass. Ultimately, the head settles at one finger.

S: The hops here are rather spicy and piny, rather than (preferably) citrusy. All this hoppiness is hidden behind a ton of crystal malt - again, not my cup of tea. On the plus side, the nose has little in the way of booze.

T: Lots of sweet malt open the flavor profile, with notes of honey, caramel, and toffee. The hop profile here is a bit sneaky, building a mild piny tone on the finish and aftertaste. At the end of the day, though, it's not what I'd call hoppy by any stretch. Nor is it boozy. It doesn't really excite the taste buds, but I enjoy its balance.

M: It starts off with a medium body, but the mildly strong carbonation helps lighten it up some. The finish is dry and resiny; however, it's not overdone. This is quite easy to sip on due to the well-hidden booze and pleasant dryness.

O: It's pleasant and easy going, almost to a fault. I think this would be a good beginner DIPA due to its malty yet balanced nature and great price point. Still, it can't really compete with some of the readily available elites of the style. The booze comes out strongly when it warms up, so drink it colder.

Fortunately, I am told that this is to become a year round brew from Old Dominion.

This DIPA is a well balanced brew for a 10% ABV.

Poured into a pint glass, it had a slightly boozy aroma with a 2 finger head. For me, the beer got better as it warmed. The sweetness of the malts did not overshadow the bitterness of the hops. This brew will definitely be a permanent resident in my refrigerator.

Very toasty. A bit boozy but over all well balanced. Poured into a Sam Adams pint glass. Pours a nice dusty golden hue. With ample carbonation of small bubbles rising to the 1 finger head. @ 9% its definitely a sipper, for the price it's a pretty good DIPA. I will definitely put this in my rotation.
