Thanks to wethorseblanket for sharing this one at jmgrub’s tasting.

Pours a slightly murky dark orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots and streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of herbal hops, citrus zest, and citrus fruit. Taste is the same but the hop flavors are very earthy and there is a malt presence in the flavor as well. A medium amount of bitterness lingers on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a better smell than taste in my opinion.

Pours a golden orange color with ample amounts of chalk white head. The smell is floral with a bit of pine and citrus. The taste is sweet at first but then you get hit with a huge pine flavor but not overpowering, very easy to drink. The mouthfeel is medium with less carbonation than one might think looking at the beer. It works though. Overall this is a very enjoyable Imperial IPA.

I really like this DIPA. Very well balanced, just a touch of citrus. Very drinkable in spite of its 9.00 ABV.

review #600

pours a deep copper, fairly clear, with about an inch or so of thick creamy head. tons of lacing and nice retention.

nice citrus bomb, with a domination of orange and sweet grapefruit. lighter hints of tangerine and pine resin.

still heavy on the citrus with more of an emphasis on the tangerine and pine resin. pungent and bitter with a faint sweetness. nice malty body. ABV is hidden well.

very full and thick. a bit of a mild carbonation but with a hint of bite.

quite good, a great DIPA. love everything about it
