22oz bomber purchased from the brewery, poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a cloudy amber/ orange color with a small amount of off-white head which quickly fades. Lots of sticky lacing noted along the side of the glass as well.

S- Great smelling beer. Lots of citrus notes, including grapefruit and mango, coupled with some piney resinous as well.

T- Starts off rather sweet for a DIPA, with nice caramel malt notes. Then comes the hop hit. The pine seems to shine through more so than the citrus notes, but I taste both sides well.

M- Medium bodied, well carbonated, nice and bitter with a dry finish. The alcohol is noted of course at 10% ABV, but it's an easy drinker.

Nice DIPA from these Solemn Oath, I'm excited to try more from this up and coming brewery.

The Death By Viking is quite nice. It poured a clear copper with thin white head that left some lacing. The scent was a piney hop. The taste had a nice full resiny finish with pine and some citrus flare. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with subtle carbonation. Overall....YUMMY.

Pours a semi-transparent, dark rusty copper orange, with a lively off-white finger of foam that dissipates rapidly. There is a noticeable amount of sediment, though not off-putting.

Dark fruit, candied malts, burnt sugar, and some subtle pine and citrus to note.

Much more citrus in the flavor, resin, fig, grapefruit, orange rind, and some caramel and brown sugar sweetness.

Medium-heavy bodied, light carbonation, citrus and pine resin bitterness, candied malt sweet bomb, and semi-chewy.
