A- Copper color with amber highlights. Minimal head but leaves a mountainous lacing on my pint.

S- earthy and citrus hop with faint caramel malt.

F- mild citrus hops. more earthy taste. pine and caramel malt notes round it out.

M- heavy and boozy. the pine and caramel linger in the mouth.

O- double IPA's are hit or miss usually but this one ranks right in the middle.

Looks decent. Scent is faint, subtle fruitiness and some citrus. Arg...flavor is different. The malt takes over quickly and clashes with the hops in a metallic sort of way. Decent carbonation and finish. Um...no

Poured into a custom pint glass: color is copper, transparent, head is very light tan with small bubbles, presents about 1/2 inch thick and lingers well with nice lacing.

Smell is feint, with citrus hops and light malt and caramel, that becomes more evident with warmth.

Taste is blend of citrus rind hops and pine notes, light hop spiciness, then prominent malt notes with caramel and toast. ABV is hidden well.

Mouthfeel is well carbonated and bitter, linger sharp bitter quality on the tongue.

Overall a well executed DIPA but the flavor seem to be a bit neutral - blend of hops but solid malt backbone.

3/2....pours bronze amber with a light white foam layer. Very subtle pine hoppy nose. Taste is a gritty chewy malt backed by an oily wobbly bitter. Thick mouthfeel, somewhat uneven. So so.
