12oz, poured into snifter after sitting out of the fridge 15 min.

A- Deep blood orange with nice one and a half finger off white head that leaves good lacing.

S- Interesting mix of citrus and pine. Strange as it sounds it reminds me a bit of pine-sol, but with some cantaloupe and honeydew thrown in. There is a little alcohol on the end that is reminiscent of a sparkling wine.

T- Sweet, fruity, juicy, dry hop bitterness kicks in and washes it all down. Grapefruit, melon, lemon, and grassy hops.

M- As other reviews have said, the mouth is fairly creamy. Starts out with prickly carbonation which fades into a thicker (medium) body feel and finishes fairly crisp with a dry bitterness lingering on.

O- I got the chance to try this fresh from the brewery last summer and grabbed a growler. That was tasty! Although Weyerbacher does not distribute to Illinois, Wisconsin isn't far enough away to deter me from grabbing a four pack every now and then, and it is pretty darn good from the bottle too!

Had this on tap a while back at MacGrady's in Bethlehem. Served in a pint glass, not much head when it arrived.

It was dark, but I've also had this from the bottle so I recall the appearance. On the darker side of pale, possibly indicative of the use of more malts. Smells of grapefruit and a little pine. Creamier for a DIPA, but this adds to the experience for me. It is a DIPA I go to when I want an IPA that's more malt balanced. Overall, not my favorite DIPA, but I'm never sad to see it and I do buy it pretty often. For me, a go to beer when I want something with a lot of hops but don't want a ton of bitterness and want a creamier mouthfeel.
