Really just about everything about this beer was a surprise, and a good one at that. For one, I thought I had picked a barleywine out of my beer fridge, but upon popping the bottle it was clear this was no barleywine! Hops everywhere. Great aroma, flavor, perfect bitterness (which was high, but good for this beer), everything just said "tasty."

Mostly what stood out for me was citric and pine-forest hops. Not much malt comes through, so I wouldn't call it balanced, but then IPAs aren't really a balanced style anyway.

Body was medium and pretty dry, overall the beer was very tasty and I'll have to stop by the place where I found it again and see if they have some more.

Pours a deep Amber. Not much head. Smells like grapefruit, mango, and pine. Tastes initially sweet like pineapple and nice malt. Immediately taken over by hops. Good mouth feel with sticky resinous quality that finishes dry. Good brew.

The more of these I drink, the more I like them. Super enjoyable/ drinkable brew at 8.9%. You barely notice the ABV. The hop/ malt balance is excellent, each distinguishable, but in perfect harmony, not opposition.

Not that Saint Arnie is known for being IPA innovators, but as a Texan, I can say this is probably their best IPA offering to date. So good, and a bang-for-buck winner at $6 a bomber.

Served in a tall tulip on tap at BJ's Willowbrook in Houston. Really pretty coppery amber hue with a nice , white head that lasted well. The aroma was of tropical fruits and citrus. Nice bitterness on entry which deepened on the palate. Plenty of malt to balance all those IBU's. A very well-balanced DIPA, for sure. I actually prefer the hop profile of Art Car (yes, I know that's a bit of "apples to oranges" comparison since Art Car isn't an Imperial) but this is certainly a very well made beer that I'll bet would gain some complexity with a little bottle age.
