3.28/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a dark hazy ruby with a head that dissipates quickly, really dark for an AIPA.

Smell: Resinous and piney upfront with a big hit of sweetness following. There is some residual hoppiness in the background, might be some flavor left over front the bittering hops (slightly citrusy).

Taste: Very malt heavy on this. The big piney aroma gets a bit dominated by the maltiness and non fermented sugars. This leaves a bit more of a mix between citrus and earthy hops without much of a bitter bite.

Mouthfeel: Pretty heavy overall, has the body of a brown IMO and the smoothness of a really malt heavy IPA/DIPA.

Drinkability: This is probably the category that this beer shines, even though the beer has a whole lot of non fermented sugars. Not to sure on the ABV but whatever it is you really can't taste it. Probably could hang out on these all night long.

3.65/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the brewery. Pours amber colored with a small white head. Aroma of pine, some grass, caramel malts. Flavor follows the smell closely with light bitter, pine notes, caramel malts, light sweetness. Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not bad but not particularly impressed either.

Had this again while out at Jerome Bettis' Grille, and it tasted much better. Lots more bite and just seemed fresher than the keg at the brewery, which is strange. Anyway, worth a try and I guess I'd have it again if I were in the mood.

Serving type: on-tap
