I agree with some others who have reviewed this. Try a couple before you decide. The first bottle was only okay and since then it is growing. I think the uniqueness throws folks. The aroma is hopping with both earthy and citrus presentation. And the citrus seems to have a clear orange quality (which is nice). But I'm sure the malt profile plays in here somehow as well, esp. in the earthy quality as there is some "grit" to the drink that is both a nice full mouthfeel and a complex flavor profile. A good stream of bitterness without excess and really not that long of a lingering. Not the best looking drink with a cloudy profile in a murky amber brown/orange. Dense tan head, though with an apparent stickiness.
It's an interesting beer that I would buy again. It is satisfying.

On tap @ Brickhouse BBQ

A: Served in a shaker pint with just the slightest surface coating of off-white head. Beer itself is deep caramel brown in color. There is minimal lacing

S: Sweet caramel malt with some pine and citrus.

T: Damn, this one has some serious caramel malt. A bit of orange and some faint hops try to cut through the malt, but sweet malt is the dominant flavor here. Moderate bitterness. Lingering malt finish.

M: On the heavier side of medium with a good dose of residual maltiness in the mouth. Lower carb level. Alcohol shows through as a bit of heat.

D: An average, rather malt centric and sweetish tasting DIPA that is not to my liking. Not necessarily difficult to drink, just not my preferred expression of the style.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Big citrus aroma, murky golden brown color small white head. The aroma is hops with some pine and citrus tossed in. The taste matches the aroma and is very good

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Loterbol tulip.

A: Pours a clear, deep, tarnished copper color with 1 1/4 fingers of extremely creamy, eggshell colored foam. Retention was excellent and whole sheets of sticky lace were left behind.

S: Typical Centennial mixture of resinous pine and juicy pineapple. A fleeting touch of mango leads into sweet caramel, brown sugar, and tangerines.

T: Freshly squeezed pine oils and pineapple (with maybe a hint of mango?) with some dry, toasted malt. Caramel, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut grass, tangy citrus, and more pine come on strong during the long finish.

M: Pretty right on mix of spicy, sticky, and peppery hops with sweet, juicy tropical fruit. Resinous pine sap and sweet fruit with a dash of white pepper during the dry finish.

D: This is a damn near sessionable DIPA. Good thing this is "only" 8.25%, because this could get you into trouble, right quick!

I got this from BeerFMAndy as part of an awesome Wisconsin monster box he sent my way. Thanks Andy!

A: Pours a beautiful cloudy caramel color, with a huge foamy head that stayed afloat throughout the session.

S: Cascady! Grapefruity! Malty! Yummy! Despite the floral smell, I detect a strong caramel malt presence. I can't wait to dig in!

T: It has a terrific ground up aspirin (or even Flintstone Vitamin) quality that I'm very fond of. It's very hop forward, with the cascade taking center stage, but fortunately, the malt is not far behind. It reminds me of a slightly smaller version of Port Brewing's Hop 15.

M: It's sweet for sure, but it is more of a "man candy" sweetness that is not cloying and can be addicting if you are a hophead. The carbonation is great, and the ABV would be undetectable even under the most powerful microscope in the galaxy.

D: I saw on their website that this is being sold in sixers for a limited time. That could be dangerous....

A- Pours a nice hazy orange liquid with a thin white head that leaves some nice lacing. Rather robust looking.

S- Steamed vegetables, butter, pine, and a touch of citrus. Not really what I look for in the style.

T- Earth, pine, citrus rind, some vegetables and butter.

M- Lightly carbonated. A slightly dry, earthy, and bitter finish.

O- A bit earthy and carmely for my taste.
