Recieved as an extra from StlThrash. Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Deschutes tulip.

A - Pours a hazy copper color with a finger of a light tan head. Not too much lacing is holding on.

S - Citrus grapefruit and a combination of pineapple and appricot. On second smell, I'm also getting a little caramel and butterscotch.

T/M - More apricot than grapefruit on the tongue. Decent amount of bitterness that sticks on the edge of my tongue. I also get a slight alcohol warmth. Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation.

O - A really good DIPA. My only complaint is that this brew is a little maltier than I would prefer my DIPAs to be. I would get this one again...if I could. Thanks Todd for tossing this one in.

This pours with a warming glowing-amber color. There’s a big, resiny piney hop nose. The aroma is all hops. Might as well call it hopnose? The flavor has a nice, thick, chewy mouthfeel. It’s piney, oily almost, and coats the mouth with hoppy goodness. Dry and thick without being heavy. Mmmm.

Bottle poured into Pint glass

A - Pours a coppery-amber with a slim head that dissipates quickly and leaves a pleasantly laced surface.

S - Mostly just hops on the nose here with some very slight tropical fruit notes hidden in there.

T - Again, mostly just bitter, piney hops on the tongue as well. There's a citrusy zest in there too, but becomes unbalanced by the strong heat afterwards. Suprisingly, I don't mind the heat on this DIPA.

M - Very sticky mouthfeel with low-carbonation. Can definitely feel the heat of the alcohol after each swallow.

O - An interesting take on the DIPA. What it lacks in a balance it makes up for with uniqueness. Probably wouldn't buy again but am enjoying it at the moment.

A: Dark for an ipa. Very dark red with a weak head. Looks wattery
S: Floral smell comes through. Nothing too spectacular
T: Tastes like an average IPA. Good floral notes but the spiciness is week and the lingering bitterness is unpleasent. Alcohol has a surprisingly nice finish.
M: Sits very well. Medium body and not watery like I was expecting.

Overall not that great of a showing here. The IPA aspect of this beer is pretty weak as the spiciness is not very present. Yet somehow there is a gross lingering bitterness that leaves me looking for a sip of water.

I have had this one on cask as well as out of the bottle. Neither wowed me, but I prefer the bottle as cask IPAs just come off flat to me. Pours golden copper, slightly cloudy, with a creamy white head. Funky aroma wafting up, with grassy hops, some interesting earthiness, light toffee, and weird yeast funk. Taste is bitter pine hops, very earthy and grassy, and not much complexity here. There seem to be malts making this hefty, but they don't really enter the flavor at all and it comes off as rather one-note. Slight dry, low medium carbonation. Not particularly exciting.
