22oz bottle into a tulip glass

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden/amber color with a finger and a half of very dense white foam. Retention is quite good.

S: Tropical fruity hoppiness mixes with some caramel and fruity sweetness. Balanced sweetness and hoppiness.

T: Tropical fruit sweetness with some dank hops. Also quite bitter. I also get a bit of citrus and piney hop flavors. Pretty straight forward and not great.

M: A bit on the thick side for a DIPA with adequate mouthfeel.

O: Not really a fan. I'm not sure if this is a bit old, but it's not very good.

This is a decent beer out of Houston Texas. I am from Houston so I enjoy St. Arnold's brewery. This beer overall simply average nothing great nothing horrible. I would drink again If I saw it but wouldn't go out of my way to find it.it is worth a try for Texas beer fans.

Bottled 12/03/12, consumed 2/8/2013...so not as fresh as I would like but should still be basically okay.

Pours a pretty standard amber color, very clear, very thick off white head.

Smells pretty bready and malty, some grass, pine cone, some bright lemon...not my kind of IPA really, and doesn't smell super fresh. Not really impressed.

Tastes bready and malty too but a little more hops here, fairly bitter, mild lemon and orange, some zesty spice. Some sweetness from the booze. Decent.

Mouthfeel is good, strong carbonation and a pretty creamy feel. Alcohol noticeable but not rely distracting.

This is okay but overall pretty disappointing. Maybe it would be better a month fresher.

6.1/10

What's the big deal? Aggressive, one-dimensional hop profile is decent, but hell, where's the body? Isn't this supposed to be a DIPA? This has the viscocity of a lighter IPA. The Saint Arnolds crew don't seem to understand that a heavy body is a essential characteristic of the style. Until they get this right, this is just another bandwagon beer…

Big thanks to Twiggamortis420 for this bottle! Totally unexpected.

A- Very puffy collar, creamy, emulsive. Its nice and sticky, very great retention, the ranges of lacing are decent, almost great. Clear goldenrod, caramel body. Well done on that.

S- Big pine needles, not pine trees... just christmas tree needles you smell after your vacuum cleaner has sucked them up and is puffing their aroma all over the room. Its paired with juniper, a very faint grapefruit, and light orange citrus sweetness that tries its best to balance out the tremendous bitterness. There is a sharpness of alcohol towards the last quarter that is almost astringently hot.

T- Bright bitterness comes at me. Pine trees and evergreen forests, mint leaf memories, some citrus sweetness, but more like a generic caramel. Its nauseatingly sweet and overwhelmingly astringent bitter. Like the alcohol is causing an exponential amount of damage in addition to it. Not a big fan of these combination of flavors.

M- Full bodied, sticky presence, long lasting biting attacks in the back pockets of my cheeks, roof of the mouth wants to crawl off and die because of the uselessly bitter imitation pine and alcohol. A nearly 9% is a tougher drink than a 15%. Color me shocked.

It started becoming a chore to drink unfortunately.

Big thanks to drabmuh for sharing this bottle. Served in a mini tulip.

Pours a clear light copper color with a thin white head and some lacing on the way down. The nose carries some tropical and citrus hops with quite a bit of malt and sweetness in the background. The flavor has some mango and other tropical fruits, but the added sweetness doesn't help. Body is too full and it's not bitter enough. Can't see a beer with this much residual sweetness being very refreshing in the Texas heat.
