Poured from a fresh can; from brewery to the bottle shop 1 week ago.

Deep amber, clear pour with fine lacing.

Aroma of big, sweet malts, honey, orange citrus, floral and pine.

The big malts lead the way, more akin to a barleywine than an IPA. The malts are dominant and sweet but mitigated by the big dose of hops which lend a pleasant bitterness. The citrus flavors are a bit overpowered in the flavor but the pine shines through. The alcohols are present - slightly astringent and hot.

The mouthfeel is oily and resinous. The fine carbonation goes well with this heavier bodied beer.

Overall this is a very well crafted beer that more closely resembles a hoppy barleywine than an IPA. Maybe that's just what an Industrial IPA is. The fresh hop profile, featuring orange citrus, floral and pine is wonderful, but is overshadowed by the strong malt profile.

APPEARANCE - Pours coppery red, with a one-finger head that dissipates quickly. Just a bit of lacing.

SMELL/AROMA - Herbaceous, sweet, a little piney. Hoppy.

TASTE - Strong piney, herbaceous, resiny kick that stays with you. A bracing ale, with a tinge of sweet. ABV is well-hidden. Great ale aftertaste.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE - Not much carbonation, light, not syrupy.

OVERALL - The cans of this beer are ABV 10% -- NOT 11.5%. Still, it has a nice kick to it. A very quaffable beer, almost chuggable. The strongest point is the resiny aftertaste.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Good looking brew that has a bit of sexy built into it, body is hazy amber with a slight thin white head maybe 1/4" off the body.

Smell: Strong piney/floral scent but not as sticking as you would like.

Taste: complex, had a caramel feel behind all the bitterness that accompanies it. Love the citrus, love the smooth strength that goes along.

Mouth: Baked bitter bread, feels a notch chewy. Almost like a meal with a touch of a sourness to it.

Overall: Finally a real good f'n beer tonight...An absolute luxury have here at the Republic in Farmingdale, NY. Will definitely have again and again as long as it's there ;-) Grab a glass on my and enjoy...salud!!!

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: translucent medium amber with orange highlights; big-bubbled off-white head a few fingers high; slick sheen left behind

S: deep citrus pith - dark and musty; caramelized grains; some floral notes

T: wet, rich grains hit up front, malty caramels; then bitter hops, drier and woodsier reclaim your malt drenched palate and elevate the flavor profile with their tight bitterness - hop and malt vie for your attention, alternating currents of wet and dry, rich and airy

M: dense up front, full-bodied; palate clamping hop bitterness airs out the mouth with woody vapors

O: epic DIPA action - not for the timid - the malts and hops are equally aggressive, and more-or-less balance out - great flavor profile, powerful nose, and massive body. Get yourself crushed. I rank it up there with the big boys of the DIPA set.

Serving type: growler
