Retired, this bottle was born 9/08/16. Enjoyed on 1/26/17 (over 4 months old). Reviewing for the record.

Pours a nice light honey yellow. 1 1/2 finger foamy head that quickly goes down. Lacing is okay, aroma is quite earthy/hoppy. Little candy in there, too.

Taste is a good solid DIPA, juicy, with pine, juice, spice (sage? no kidding), slightly spoiled mango, and moldy bread. You look like that's a bad thing. Keeping various things juggled without any throwing the whole thing out. Bitter is under control, I think malts mellow this out. A resiny finish, and a little woody.

Juice with a shoe in it. And I think I know what AdvocateFan means (below) by "catty." This might be a bit past its prime. A bit astringent, but malt and resin make this rather slick, not too sweet, could be worse. Not a home run, maybe safe on 2nd. 9% is lurking in the background but doesn't overtake.

A little different.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: Honeyed golden look, hefty off white head.

Smell: it's catty. flourishes of mint sprig. deeply resinous pine/sap. aggressively hopped.

Taste: hoppy, woody, resinous notes. Alcohol. Intense, yet pretty well integrated. Not too rambunctious, though still raucous. Faint sweet malts, but overall dry and bigly hoppy. Some tropical fruits soaked in vodka.

Finish: still catty... very bitter. Some chalk. Damn dry.

Mouthfeel: a tad thin. San Diego style... from Houston.

Overall: Double IPAs can be overly sweet, for purposes of "balance". This is not one of those. Thinner and not as refined as the Divine Reserve #11, which somehow reaches heaven rather than just shooting for the stars. Still, beer this hoppy and well made in Texas shows how far we've come in craft beer. Let us Endeavour to continue our efforts to bring better beer to the masses.
