Pours a slightly hazy deep amber with a sticky looking white head.
Smells great. Piney hops, wet bread, caramel and alcohol. Great combination. The hop aroma is very strong and welcoming.
Really nice piney hop flavor. Warming alcohol. Carmel and toffee malt flavors are there, but subdued by the over-the-top hops. Really nice. Lingering oily hop flavor and malty sweetness on the lips is really nice.
Full bodied, oily mouthfeel. Substantial.
I could get into real trouble with this beer because the taste begs me to have another. Just what I'd hoped for and one of the better AIPAs I've had. Ruination, DFH 60 and 90 Minute fans would like this.

Appearance is a clear yellowish copper color. This offering is slightly effervescent with a finger of fluffy head that seemed to linger forever and left rings of lace behind reminiscent of a nitro-tapped beer. The malt profile seems solid, if not remarkable and the hoppiness is good for a single IPA.
This offering does suffer from an odd trace of booziness which makes it less drinkable than some higher ABV DIPAs that I’ve sampled in the past.
Serving type: on-tap
