4.7/5  rDev +17.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

On tap at Delaney's Tap Room on a recent trip to New Haven
A- Pours a clear golden yellow hue, white creamy head mostly retains, lacing all over
S- Nose is an elegant bouquet of sweet, sugary malts and modest pine/grass/grapefruit hops, nice helping of vanilla, spices, and brown sugar, amazing aromas!
T- Initial taste is super bitter hops with a mostly citrus character, transitions to sweet bread malts, finishes with a mix of sugary molasses and dry bitter hops
M- Medium-bodied, oily texture, moderate carbonation
D- Wonderfully balanced DIPA, the hops and malts work together nicely, I was completely sold on the aroma and could drink this gem all night long, definitely the best beer at Delaney's

Bottle from Gary's
Pours a slightly hazy deep straw color with a decent sized creamy bubbly white head that slowly dissipates. Aromas of orange, earth. pine, and resin with a solid light sweet sugary maltiness to back it up. The flavor is quite sweet like the aroma suggested with sweet sugar covered oranges and apricots. The earthy pine is less prevalent in the flavor as is the bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Its got some nice flavors and I'm guessing most of the fruit flavors might be hop derived. Needs more attenuation and more bitterness.

This reveiw is based on a draft enjoyed on my birthday at Max's in Baltimore. It has an average appearance: light amber body crowned by a thin head. It offers a caramel nose and a mildy sweet molasses bite with a quick hoppy finish at the end.

Nice balance with moderate carbonation - and suprisingly smooth for a beer of this caliber. Sometime next year I gotta get up to Brooklyn and visit this place, one of America's finest craft breweries. Nuff said. Forgeddaboutit!
