On tap at the source.
Pours a cloudy murky reddish amber color with a creamy off white head that provides maximum stickage to the glass. It doesn't look great. Smells of citrus pine and resin with bits of apricot and tropical fruit. There might be some bready malt in there but its hard to tell. Taste is fruity hop goodness with citrus and pine flavors and little bits of bread every now and then. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Really nice double IPA that looks like shit but tastes like buttah.

Poured a dusty amber hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a balmy grapefruit hop with an accompanying caramel sweetness.

The taste consisted of several waves of grapefruit and pine atop a bready caramel malt.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty DIPA.

Pours a cloudy amber with a one-finger head into my glass. Usually, beers of this style should be clearer.

Mild hop aroma that has a slight citrus hue with a bit of grassiness.

Very fresh and tart like a plucked grapefruit. Explodes in the mouth with a hint of pine as well.

Lingering grapefruit notes accentuate the mouthfeel, which is reneded hot by the abv (7.8).

It could use some more coaxing to really balance out the flavor. Otherwise, I like it how it is.

On tap poured into a wine glass.

Pours a nice deep dark ruddy amber with a small light brown head. Nose is malty and sweet, with some subtle fruity notes.

Wow, this is a big beer, the flavors are almost overwhelming. It's sweet, thick, sticky, needless to say quite hoppy, rich and a bit hot. The fruitiness on the nose takes a bakery to harsh palmate crushing bitterness!

Stopped into the Burlington Hearth on both 01APR and 02APR11 with Alewife for some drinks. This was my go-to bier on both days, at $2.75 for 6oz or $4.50 for 12oz.

My snifter was filled with a clear liquid which was colored somewhere between deep, deep golden and copper-russet. It had steady carbo, and a thin, light, wispy tan head, which left decent lacing. The aroma had robust citrus, with lots of rindyness. Body was medium, with a medium smooth feel on the tongue.

Flavor was loaded with hops! It was rindy, resiny, piney, puckery - you name it! Loads of citrus were layered upon the palate, and there was even a suggestion of mint present. Solid; solid all the way! No miscommunication here.
