On tap at Fort Worth Flying Saucer, one week after Firestone Walker's DFW debut. Pours a medium amber, head and lacing average. Smells of tropical fruits, pine, and caramel. Taste is juicy blackberries, peaches, citrus and pine. Alcohol is well hidden and not overly sweet for a DIPA - well balanced. Mouthfeel is medium, sticky finish begs for the next sip. Overall a fantastic DIPA and one that is very welcome in Texas.

22 oz bottle in March, 13. Poured into a Mystic snifter..

A: a little on the light side, with a mostly amber appearance. A substantial, though thin head.

S: Surprisingly gentle for it's alcohol content. Doesn't come across as overly sharp.

T: Nicely balanced with some nutty tones. Alcohol adds to the taste without overwhelming. I didn't get the same caramel sweetness as some others, but there is a good malt running through it. Though hoppy, not a dominant flavor.

M: Medium feel. Plently smooth. Very nice balance in the carbonation.

O: If you're looking for a Double IPA, it's a fine choice. A bit dangerous in that the 9.5% is masked by very smooth flavors.
