Had this one on tap at Lakecreek Alamo Drafthouse.

Served in an 11 oz tulip. Very pretty orange/copper color with a white head that left pretty decent lacing.

Got a lot of caramel malt and a good bit of citrus hops in the scent. OK, but certainly not nearly on the same scent level as the likes of Maharaja or Hercules.

Taste followed the nose with orange hops and a caramel base. I felt the combo was pretty spot on, but it was pulled back a bit...was hoping for more wallop! Had a medium body, not as sticky as I like most of my DIPAs; a little more carbonation than I expected as well. It certainly did a good job of masking the 9% abv.

Overall, an enjoyable beer, but not on par with the many other DIPAs one can get there hands on around here. I prefer the 512 IPA to this one.

(from notes)

On tap at the Alamo Draft house. Served in a 12 oz. tulip.

Look- Tangerine amber, opaque, but not particularly hazy. Ring of suds persists until the glass empties. Good lacing for 9%.

Smell- Biscuit, lemon candy, grass. Clean, but nothing special.

Taste- Follows the nose. Moderately bitter, mild tangerine, resin, dry pine finish. Not boozy at all. Again, it's clean and pleasant, but nothing special for a DIPA. +.5 for masking the above-average ABV. Too much bittering without substance for my liking.

Mouthfeel- Sharp carb, medium body, light feel. Moderate astringency.

Overall- Pleasant enough, but nothing special, and not easy drinking enough for a "subtle" beer. Feels like a few tweaks and a later hop addition would take this one over the top. Worth trying.
