12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

A- Golden in color. Head is off white, frothy, and holds up really well. Good lacing left behind.

S- Strong citrus and pine, dry and pithy. Malt is biscuity, but faint. There is also a sense of alcohol, stinging the nose.

T- Big bitter citrus and pine bite. Pithy again. Malt backs it up though, biscuity, as the aroma suggests.

M- Body is medium full, and has a long bitter finish.

O- Not bad. I'm glad the malt flavor comes in as much as it does, otherwise this would be a palate wrecker. Scale tips to bitter, for sure.

Taste: woody, spiced resin notes with tropical hops. Dry hopped and slightly boozy nose. Orange/Amber color, mostly clear, with foamy white head and ringed lattice. Medium/full body. Dry it is. 85 IBUs

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a nice looking hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Lotsa nice foamy lacing stuck finely to the glass. The smell had a sweet sticky grapefruit-esque leading to fine subtle juicy citrus and decent underscore of pine to balance. The taste was pure bittersweet and refined to a sly subtle sticky citrusy conglomeration of pine. The aftertaste was mainly bitter that lead to a slightly dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body. 9.5% - really? Maybe closer when its fresh, not necessarily now. Still good and has a decent substantial carbonation to pound my tongue into submission. Overall, pretty good DIPA that I would have again.

Another great draft at the Capital Ale House (VA). A snifter glass

Appearance- A bright gold color with close to two fingers of off-colored head. The head slowly dissipated and a nice lacing slowly followed.

Smell- Citrus and floral notes combined with a nice malt scent. The alcohol is definitely there but nicely blended.

Taste- The citrus from the tropical fruits tries to cut the bitterness. There a sweet taste like caramel or candied fruit toward the middle of the pour. The bitter notes mixed with the fruit taste was great.

Mouthfeel- An interesting stickiness with medium carbonation. Finished with a bold fullness

Overall- The sweetness and bitterness mix for a great West Coast double IPA. The alcohol really hits toward the end but this one was extremely drinkable. My favorite beer from Firestone Walker
