Enjoyed on tap at Coles. A very good IPA. Some hop aroma. Dark cola colour with edges of light, and a big bubbly white head. Big hoppiness, DIPA level, yet still gentle on the palate. Lace dots. Malting in the secondary make it very drinkable, a little chocolate malt.

Growler generously shared at BCTC09. Further enjoyed & fully consumed once all the first-timers went to bed. ;)

Poured into my baby Duvel glass. A deep, somewhat filtered, caramel amber colored body, with a light, meringue-sort of head.

Smell was of stiff pine needles, fumy meditation incense, bitter orange rind, & alcohol.

Taste was largely pine sap, wood resins, & sticky sweet spilt beer residuals. A big IPA. Quite sturdy & thick, despite the strong carbonation.

A healthy blended ipa, though I couldn't drink too much of it with or without all the other temptations lying around the campsite.
