Pours a deep amber with a cream head. Aroma is a rich pine and caramel. Taste is very much the same. Am I tasting crystal malts? Feel is medium - high carbonation. Overall, I wish I had a 6 -pack of these bad boys.

On tap at Boise Brewing. Pours out a nice ruby brown, soft beige head, lots of lacing. Caramelly, nutty, peaty, exceptionally smooth. Elevated IPA plays into whole scenario, accenting aroma, flavor and finish. Nicely done.

I'm a fan of malty ipas. If you like Dale's, this tastes like a turbocharged version of Dale's. Great work, OB

12oz can into a pint glass. canned 1/8/18, so 3 1/2 months old.

very nice clear reddish amber body. big foamy off white head leaving excellent thick lacing.

clean biscuity malt aroma.

unfortunately, the hops seem to have faded. there is a nice enough sweet malty taste with the faintest hop bite at the end. pleasant drink, but not as balanced as I'd hoped for.

mouth is close to full, finish is a sweet wash and faint bitterness.

overall, though a nice enough drink, this one was a bit of a letdown. was hoping for a bit ore of a hop oomph.

I enjoyed this! Maybe the best red ipa to date for me. On the sweeter side.

subtle haze and firm head. very tasty double IPA has become a favorite with not too sweet upfront and good mouthfeel
