Cloudy honey colored pour with a minimal head. Big piney and citrus aroma. Taste has strong pine and resin flavors upfront that are balanced by a solid malt backbone. Can also taste light citrus, pineapple, caramel, and bread. Finishes with a juicy pineapple and resin bitterness.

Served in a tumbler.

Man, Goose Island has me programmed or somethin', 'cause I kept referring to this as "312 DIPA" all night... Anyway, this stuff pours a mostly clear sunset amber topped by a finger or so of off-white foam. The nose comprises bright melon, grapefruit zest, sweet caramel, light honey, and a twinge of pine resin. The taste brings in more of the same, with some fruit rinds tossed in, the pine taking on a more needle-y character, and the caramel drying out a bit, though still retaining its decent amount of sweetness. A vein of alcohol is perceptible, but it maintains its furtive personality. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying-ish finish. Overall, a solid DIPA, one that tries to achieve a healthy balance in there, while still hitting you with plenty of hops. Not bad.
