A - Pours a hazy golden color. A bit surprised by the color given the smell and taste.

S - Caramel malts followed by citrus and pine, herbs. Not incredibly complex on the smell.

T - Lots of orange followed by pine, lemongrass and some floral/herbal qualities. Finishes with some really great caramel malts to keep everything balanced. Just a bit of alcohol lingers, but nothing that I wouldn't expect at this level. I probably overuse the word "balance," but this is just really well done and the flavors are very enjoyable.

M - Moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Good thickness. There's a slick, oily feel to this as well.

O - Over time I've really started to appreciate IPAs with malts that I feel balance the hops well and don't completely destroy your palette. This goes in as one of the top tier DIPAs out there.

Myrcenary pours a hazy golden color with a small lacing head. There is a harsh sweet malty aroma, with hints of an oily hoppy kick. Taste is more balanced, harsher malty backbone, with bold hoppy flavors. The hoppy flavor is more oily then it is floral. While its well carbonated, there is a "flat" feel. Overall in my opinion its quite overrated, too sweet but too harsh.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Golden and peach colored with a single finger of head. Lacing on the side of glass is healthy.

The smell is complex, presenting citrus, specifically lemon and other sweet fruit aromas, some piney hops, and mellow malt hints. The taste is sweet and fruity initially but then gives away to a powerful bitterness and resinous, piney hops.

The mouthfeel is pleasant, mildly dry with only subtle hints of alcohol. It's quite easy to drink despite being a double.

Overall, a great DIPA and certainly on par with many of the best in the business. The only difference is it's easier to obtain.
