Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Dark, clear, gold color. Very tiny head that goes away quickly and leaves a thin ring. Lacing is decent, clinging to the glass in small patches and sliding away quickly.

Scent: The dominant smells are of sweet malt and alcohol. There's also some hop notes as well but they are subdued, which is atypical for a DIPA.

Taste: Spices, grapefruit, pine and malt notes. There's also a very strong alcohol presence just like in the nose.

Mouthfeel: It's smooth and creamy. Medium bodied, with medium carbonation.

Overall: A bit underwhelming for a Double IPA. No big scents or flavors are present, as one would expect from the style. Instead, you get a well balanced beer with a distinct alcohol character that while aromatic and tasty, is not particularly special or noteworthy.

This was poured into a snifter and a tulip. The appearance was a nice looking hazy pale orange color with some light brown tinges running lightly around the sides of the glass. The head was about a light one fingered white foaminess sticking for a good minute before it died in a lumpy sort of way. There’s a good amount of lacing clinging all over the place (nice show!). The smell had a bitter/dank/citrusy and somewhat resinous grapefruitiness running all over my nose and pummeling it into submission as to confusing it with bitter hops. The taste had a nice citrusy sweetness running over my tastebuds. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a sessionability closing in on perhaps one or two beers of this in a night. Overall, very good DIPA that I would love to have again.
