Nice to taste a tasty (and delicious) DIPA that is native to New England. I had this one on tap in a snifter glass at The People's Pint in Greenfield, MA, and had to go back for a second.

Appearance-
An attractive orange-amber that is typical for the style, though this one is relatively hazy. Medium foam at the start that dissipates quickly, but then a ring encircles the inside of glass throughout the drinking experience.

Smell-
A pleasant, sweet malt and alcohol dominate when the beer is cold. If you are an aromaphile, I recommend letting this one warm up, as the malt stands out more and citrus steps in to add a new dimension. In my experience, this is typical for a DIPA, but particularly for this one.

Taste-
That sweet malt and a new note--perhaps black tea---come first. Hops later, but not overpowering. Some citrus, but this is in the background. My favorite DIPAs are more assertive on the citrus and pine front, but this beer is still quite yummy and above all, very nicely balanced between the sweetness and hops.

Mouthfeel-
Smooth, smooth and smooth, without a break in the nice balance of flavors. It's sometimes cool when you get a new flavor well after swallowing, but in this case, I like that the sweet malt : tea : hops balance is not disrupted.

If you are a DIPA fan, go for it, but because of its balance and smoothness, I'd also recommend this one for those with a more subtle palette who are feeling adventurous. Cheers.

Had at the People's Pint served in a tulip. The beer had a murky, dark orange appearance and a medium sized head that dissipated into a thin ring around the glass. Aromas were loaded with a sharp citrus mixed with earthy pine. Taste follows the nose to make for a citrus sweet drink that paired extremely well with my dinner. Mouthfeel had medium carbonation to add some crispness to this medium body drink. Overall, I thought this was a great imperial IPA from this restaurant/brewery.

A: The beer is relatively clear amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down a bit, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar of large bobbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts are present in the nose along with notes of pine resin hops.
T: Like the smell, the taste starts out with flavors of caramel alts (and hints of malty sweetness) that is followed by notes of pine resin hops and hints of citrus vt here is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a very good IPA but there's nothing distinctive to make this stand out compared to some of the other top beers in the style.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from somewhere localish.

Poured into an imperial pint, formed a 1/4" light beige head over the cloudy amber brew. Head is a film pretty quick, it didn't have far to go, with sticky lace. Aroma is pine and sweet and pine and light smokiness.

Taste is sweet to start, citrus in the middle, switching to pine bitterness through the close, with a sticky alcohol linger. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is good. Seems more than 7% abv, for what it's worth. Nice.

A: Pours a clear medium amber in color with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation and some golden yellow + copper highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy light beige head that reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a couple of small to medium slightly thicker patches of medium sized bubbles and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit rind hops and lighter notes of caramel malts.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of caramel malts with just a touch of sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit rind hops that contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades after a short amount of time.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Overall this is a pretty easy drinking example of the style (DIPA) but there is just nothing that really stands out about this one. I enjoyed it but did not think it was exceptional.
