12oz to snifter, no freshness date
8%abv and 50 ibus

A- Dark murky orange, shades of red, brown, meeting in the middle with a solid cloudy rust color. Very dark for an ipa, Pours with mild head, however has some of the best lacing down the sides of the glass as I swirl it of any beer I've had

S- Overwhelming juniper, sage, pine, and hops. Very earthy, notes of bready malt come though the back with a spicky smell of pine resin. Grassy floral overtones. Very different, but very good

T- Strong pine and juniper mostly at the beginning, following through with hops and herbs. Solid pine after taste

M- Spicy and creamy. Pine resins and oils cover the inside of your mouth leaving it sticky. Not the smoothest, but has a solid dry finish

O- Not necessarily a bad beer, but it deviates from the style too far to be marketed as a double ipa. Very unique and something I'd recommend trying, but not as drinkable as many dipas out there. That said, I'll probably pick up another bottle someday

Bottle (2012)

Thanks for bringing this back for me, ryno09!

Dark amber and ruby with a thin off-khaki colored head, eventually leaving irregular dots and lines of lace down the glass. Pretty.

The aroma is unique, though also exactly what I expected: sage and juniper berries lead, along with some other floral notes, caramel, and a hint of alcohol.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with earth, sage, and berry flavors leading the way, along with floral notes, caramel sweetness, and a bit of alcohol presence.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

A very unique, IPA, though I couldn't drink a ton of this like I could my favorite IPAs.

Thanks to Benny for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy dark copper with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, sage, and juniper berries. Taste is much the same with a herbal hop finish. There is a medium hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some interesting herbal and spice aromas and flavors.
