Re-review. Original is below, and one of the first beers I ever reviewed. Obvious when you read it...
Anyways, I was very pleased to see this on tap at the local Alehouse!
Pours a nice dark orange/amber color with a nice white head.
Aromas are wonderful, dank, resiny hops, with a sugary maltiness, and a blast of more hops, there is citrus, mostly of apricots and oranges.
Taste is sticky, sweet, and dank up front. Beer then settles into some creamy caramel malt flavors. Finish is pine like, with sweet and bitter citrus flavors.
Mouthfeel is excellent. Very nice full smooth body, with spot on carbonation.
Drinkability is great. This is a top notch DIPA, as good as I remember. My original ranking of 4.9 was a little misguided, but my second seating with this one showed me that this is still a superb example of the style.
A knock you on your a$$ beer. Boy... this is easily one of my favorite beers, let alone IPAs. I have only seen this at the brewery, and just had one there a few months ago. Has a great hop aroma and flavor. It has that piney fruity smell/taste of fresh hops through and through. A very tasty beer for sure.
Serving type: on-tap
