Very Good

Notes: Rich caramel malt sweetness is beaten over the head with bright, fresh American hop flavors of grapefruit citrus, pine and tropical fruit in our double IPA. This beer is the bigger, more successful brother of Kidnapped by Vikings.

A - Poured a burnt, chill hazed orange into a pint glass with an inch and a half of off-white head. Lots of lacing left on the glass while you drink the beer.

S - Big, imperial IPA nose of resinous pine, followed by some citrus and a hint of starfruit. The nose is bringing tropical fruit notes to my attention along with a bit of pine and resin. If there's malt in the nose I missed it.

T - Pine, resin, blood orange, and other citrus dominate the tongue. Lots of

M - Appropriate carbonation for a medium bodied beer. Lots of hop oil on the tongue.

O - Another great beer from Solemn Oath. Excellent example of an Imperial IPA.

The only other beer I've had from these guys is Butterfly Flashmob ( on tap ) which I enjoyed. They just started bottling so I had to pick this up when I saw it at Binnys.
Poured from 22oz bottle ( no date ) into snifter.

look - white head, settled with some decent lacing. Color of the beer is a sunburst orange with a slight haze

smell - citrus dominates. grapefruit, tangerine, piney, hops

taste - a bit of malty sweetness is nicely balanced with some citrus flavors and a hop bite

mouthfeel - medium body, on the lower carb side, a bit oily, but finishes dry

overall - nice balanced DIPA - very drinkable - I really liked it! . I usually don't buy bombers too often, but at $7.99 it's not as bad as buying an FFF DIPA bomber at 50% higher cost and almost as good.
