Had Saturday evening at Iron Hill in Newark, DE. Poured into a shaped glass, it comes out a clear amber color with a smallish white head that leaves some good lacing.

Smell is intensely hoppy, nice pine and citrus here, very typical DIPA aroma. Flavor wise it is very solid, big blast of bitterness all around, this is definitely a higher IBU beverage. Hops are pretty citrusy, bitter, slight earth, decent amount of pine. Solid 9% malt backbone tries to bring in some sweetness but it's no use.

Overall I was expecting a malt bomb, but this is a really nice hop-forward DIPA from this brew pub. Recommend!

Tap at Lancaster brew pub.

Fluffy foamy 1 finger head fades semi slowly with spotty almost soapy lacing, somewhat hazy golden honey colored.

Nice fruity hops, very floral, light tropical even, very little malt, but a hint of sweet boozy malt profile.

Taste starts fairly bitter, quite hoppy with earthy spicy hop kick, nice sweet malty balance to it doesn't get astringent, light citrus and fruity hops too, faint kick of booze, mild sweet malt attempts to balance but falls a bit short, mostly just props up the hops.

Mouth is med to slightly fuller bod, bit of warming booze, decent carb.

This poured out as a very nice clear orange color with a small soapy white head on top. The retention is thin with a nice sticky lacing. The smell of the beer gives off hoppy aromas of oranges, banana, pine and some mango. The taste is sweet upfront with a nice malt profile that fades into the bitter strike of the hops that balance this out. The mouthfeel is smooth yet sharp with some strong carbonation and bitterness. Overall it's a sweet beer that transitions into a very resiny IPA. I found it enjoyable and very happy to have finally tried this.
