3.75/5 rDev -6.5%
Served in a pint glass at Miller's ale house.
A. Citrusy with just a hint of pine.
T. Typical IPA taste of citrus, piney melon flavors melding together.
M. Not too bubbly, which is welcomed. Full bodied yet light (if that makes any sense).
For a DIPA it isn't very "hoppy" as one might expect. I found it to be enjoyable. Lightly floral, lightly citrusy ale that goes down very easy despite its 8+ abv. Definitely not for "hop heads" but highly recommended for those who enjoy milder IPA's.

12oz brown bottle with pry-off cap and Best by date of Sept 2014 poured into a snifter
Appearance: Pours a hazy, golden amber with 1/2 finger of head
Smell: Citrus hops and orange zest with a little underlying malt
Taste: A whole lot of hop flavor up front and very complex; citrus up front with more earthy notes in the middle and finishes lemony and clean with some biscuit
Mouthfeel: More than moderate carbonation; feeling a little aerated
Overall: This is a very complex double IPA with hop flavors from all over the spectrum. I would imagine the wide variety of hops lends to good consistency between batches. This good example of the double IPA style and would pair excellently with any spicy or full-flavored dish.

- sampled in spiegelau ipa glass.
A: (3.5) Solid rush of macro-effervesce within a glowing orange body with a generally good clarity. Slight, milky film, oatmeal toned head has a moderate rate of retention. Fairly consistent cap coverage, speckled and spotted lacing.
S: (3.25) Nose of fresh wet pine needles, with a slight sour twang of tangerine spiciness an citrus of light to moderate proportion.
T: (3.75) Spicy orange citrus hopping, with a flowery edginess. Grassy notes with a smooth crystal malting sweetness, bready, while finishing with a orange-grassy hop leave.
M: (3.75) Crisp mouthful, tight, turning frothy with a full body on the hold. Spicy warm orange-grapefruit and alcohol glow.
O: (3.75) Overall a nice drinking ipa, crisp, bright flavor with some sweet crystal moment giving way to a lingering grassy hoppiness fade. The hopping continues to pick up deeper in the drinking experience.

Amazing beer that straddles the line between IPA and DIPA, big ABV and hops without being entirely hop-based. Malts balance things out. Nose is all kinds of hoppy, big citrus and pine. Mouth is chewy, not dry, very drinkable. Amazing beer from one of my absolute favorite breweries.
