Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a branded St. Arnold Brewing Company stange (I believe they use it for their tasting glass)

Pours a deep copper with orangish hues. Slightly off-white one and half finger head. Great retention, significant amount of sticky lacing. Big, dank, earthy hops, pine sap, with an light undercurrent of citrus rises from the glass. Opens with earthy hops, mixed herbal notes, and pine sap joined midpalate by birch syrup, hints of honey, and slight accents of pineapple. More dank earthiness and spruce-like bitterness with accents of grapefruit rind and a dry finish. At the very heaviest end of medium bodied, slick and silky with moderate carbonation that provides perfect balance. This really is an outstanding DIPA. So many newer DIPA's are "citrus bombs" that trend fruity and are sometimes just a bit too sweet for my tastes. This brew thankfully trends toward the other end of the spectrum.

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.
