Nice copper orange color with a thick off-white head with great retention.
Aroma with notes of pine-naphthalin, condiments, caramels, flowers and grapefruit citrusy.
Flavor with notes of grapefruit, pine-naphthalene, lots of spices, orange marmalade, resin, garlic, ginger, caramel syrup, berries and white fruits. Dry aftertaste with a long bitterness. Potent 89 IBUs.
Full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 10% is well disguised, although it has a warm feeling.
Quite bitter DIPA with lots of condiments and piney-grapefruit forward hops. Good complexity, though I didn’t like the sort of dank pine-chemical profile. I found this more of an American Barley Wine given its solid malty caramel backbone.

From a can, pours a hazy gold with a one-finger frothy off-white head. Aroma is a fulsome floral hops. Taste is heavily boozy with bitter hops and caramel / malty sweetness. Really well developed flavors, but overwhelmed with alcohol boozyness. In this case, less is more.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a slim finger’s worth of white foaminess that quickly dissipated leaving some stringy lacing roaming here and there. The smell had a decent sweet grapefruit with a slight grassiness and a decent caramel malt backbone. The taste copied the smell and brought in a slight extra citrus to give off a slight bittersweet appeal. A bitter citrus aftertaste leads to a quick dry caramel/citrus finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a more sipping quality about it. The carbonation seemed fairly rounded out, slightly smooth and didn’t have the expected punch that I wanted in a DIPA. Overall, at 10% and lack of harshness, I’m wondering if this was old. I didn’t see any date on the bottle, probably only have again if I knew it was fresh.

A: A deep brown color, hazy. With a decent sized tan head.

S: Grapefruit orange peel, and some nice sweet caramel.

T: Orange peel, grapefruit, a touch of pine, with a caramel and honey finish. Decently bitter with a definite booze finish.

M: Medium in body with fairly active carbonation.

O: Overall a pretty tasty brew. Not the greatest of the style, but a very passable IIPA
