Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Thank you shan8454 for this one in trade.

Appearance: Cloudy darker amber with a thin off white head. Some mild lacing on the glass.

Smell: Strong pine bitter notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Rough, medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops and pine with a very mild sweetness in the background.

Overall: Good IPA, glad I got to try this one out.

Smells buttery with a bit of spice and mango. Flavor is dry with diacetyl and citrus rind hops. Okay but needs some work.

Nice imperial. Not the best I've had (Green Flash maybe), and far from the worst (no names). It is certainly a beast of a beer. It might not be atop the imperial food chain, but it is a legit contender.

A: light copper color with little transparency. Good lacing and carbonation with little head.
S: it has some inherent sweetness and yeast scent similar to what you find in Belgium beers
T: something I have found with most south eastern breweries is the impact of the water to the flavor profile. Their IPAs leave you with a muddled hop flavor instead of the piney profiles offered by Stone. Nice balance of light malt and a predominant hop/floral profile
M: medium-heavy mouth with a good amount of carbonation. Leaves an OK after taste that I do not prefer.
O: the label advertising a DIPA with Rye pulled me in to purchase this beer. In the edit doesn't deliver a good hop hit nor rye flavor but rather what I have come to expect from east coast "IPAs": a muddle shadow of their cousins west. The saving grace to this is the healthy balance of sweetness they managed to add to the norm muddled hop profile

Pours to a thick buff head and consistent lacing all the way down. Color is hazy light amber. Aroma is pine sol and biscuit malt. Flavor is a rich blend of malt and hops yet it has a soapy, funky note that detracts a bit. Good bracing bitterness. Mouthfeel medium. Overall not bad but a bit rough in some spots.
