Poured into a belgian beer glass. Coppery in color with a 1 1/2 inch thick head that faded fairly quickly. Moderate lacing. Smells faintly of pine. Taste is very malty which carries over to feel as it coats the tongue, very much like caramel. A very resinous beer indeed. Tastiness betrays the abv. Overall a fine DIPA.

Aroma was noticed from the crack of the can. In fact, my sister commented on how good this beer smelled from across the room. This beer is not afraid of hops, but not as hop-forward as my West Cost brews. Still, a great IPA and well worth a go if you see it.

Aftertaste is a bit sticky, but the high ABV will soon have you forgetting about that.
