A fine beer, and for me, a little unexpected from this brewery. 1/2 bbl at my home so I have had a few days with it. Very strong grassy hop nose, a lot of body, and the sweet alcohol comes through the very fruity smell. Apricots? A very earthy taste I enjoyed, highly recommend this beer.

Cellar temperature in a tulip.
It has a pretty, transluscent golden-amber body and a soft, two-finger white head.
An inviting aroma of bready malt, spruce trees, and orange peel here. A nicely dank hop smell.
The flavor has a great initial burst of zesty citrus which gradually dries into resinous pine needles and biscuity, bready maltiness. An excellent harmony of IPA flavors presented in sufficient imperial intensity.
For feel, it has a bright carbonation which brings the hoppiness to life, and a medium to full body. Feels right.
A delightfully well-done DIPA.

A: Super clear with just a shade under amber. Fluffy beige head.
S: Earthy pine with orange peel and grapefruit. Some apricot and a bit of mango.
T: The sweetness from the apricots and mango leads the palate and leads into the earthy pine bitterness. Finish stays with you for a while before the next sip. Really solid hops, though it's not as robust as other DIPAs.
M: Really solid carbonation. Exactly where I think it should be. Medium bodied. Bit oily on the mouthfeel during the finish, but it drys up quickly.
O: Really solid DIPA. Keep hearing people comparing this to Pliny the Elder and I can see why because of the body/bitterness/carbonation, but the hops are more aggressive here and you get less of the citrus fruits. Other than that, awesome. Totally worth $8 for a four pack.
