You could say this really does smell like the Sierras with all the pine, sage, and juniper. Very attractive coppery orange color in the tall Belgian glass. Plenty of foam that lasts well. Quite fragrant with the woodsy and resiny smells.
This is quite malty but not overly sweet. Pungent is the word you are looking for here. Still it's sippable, if a little intense. Scratchy bitter notes with hops and that distinct juniper bitterness. Piney and resiny. It reminds me of the spruce-flavored beers, but way beyond. There is some hot orange marmalade and a very bitter aftertaste.
This is an interesting variation on the usual DIPA styles. Intense and hard to drink very much, but it's a unique flavor mix in my experience. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.
