look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
grabbed a couple 12 oz bottles from the Beer Junction in West Seattle, poured into pint glass.
pours a 1/2" off-white head with moderate, slippery lacing. gorgeous, sparkling copper-amber hue with a peach tint.
damn smoky and oaky for an IPA, citrus and clovey aroma meets cherry and piney overtones with a big bang of herbal to floral hops.
tastes goes back to oak, cloves, and citrus hops. sort of a tingling, almost schnapps aftertaste.
subtle and mellow on-bringing for such a high alc./vol. level. crisp, dry finish. pretty elegant, does its thing and moves along quickly.
a bold and charismatic IPA, I just wish it looked a little better... a fun and dangerous beer. the after sensation in your throat is the only way your body warns you of this high alcohol content beer. I'd imagine after about three anybody will be good.

4.1/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 5/14/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, bread, oak, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops, oak, and dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, floral, grass, light pine, oak, light vanilla, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, bread, floral, grass, light pine, oak, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops, oak, and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a smooth, creamy, and lightly slick/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent oak aged DIPA. All around great complexity and balance of citrus/floral hops, oak, and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
