1 Pint, 6 oz bottle poured into a glass.

A: Cloudy burnt orange color. Beautiful for an IPA. Practically no head at all.

S: Nice hop aroma with a little bit of pine scent as well.

T: Love the fairly high IBU count (86). Nice hop taste with a little bit of sweetness. Unfortunately, they didn't balance the hop taste with the alcohol taste.

M: Carbonation is fine but the alcohol taste is not masked as much as it should be.

O: One of the best Double IPAs I've had. I picked this up for just $3.99. I would spend that on this any day of the week.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. There's a freshness code stamped on the bottleneck but it's smeared and unreadable.

A- Pours a hazy dark amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick bubbly ring around the edge of the glass and some small bubbly patches of surface foam. Tight clusters of semi-resilient lacing.

S- Musty, earthy hop aroma. Smells like New Zealand hops but I'm not sure.

T- Similarly earthy in the flavor with a bit of citrus on top. Zesty hop bitterness is assertive yet enjoyable. Easy drinking for the ABV.

M- Tingly and bright with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- A very smooth and flavorful DIPA. I only got a single but I should've picked up a 4- or 6-pack.
