Lemongrass/earthy notes throughout, with a well-balanced malt base. Citrus is there but muted compared to most DIPAs. Nice change of pace and a great double.

[Tap] Light orange in color with a soapy white head. Pungent hop aromas include lots of citrus and pine. Flavors of sweet malts, bitter resinous hops, candi sugar, fruit rinds and honey. Too sweet overall. The honey also made the beer relatively light in body and exposed some harsh fusel alcohol notes. I was not very impressed by this particular beer. Tasting notes from Big Blue Craft Beer Festival in Sheboygan on 10/18/14.

12 ounce bottle from Binny’s. Bit orange pour. Lots of malt and honey. Some pine. Bit malty and sweet for me. Still, nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Alpine in Madison. Pours reddish amber with an off-white head leaving a lot of streaky lacing. Aroma has heavy pine and citrus, plus some caramelly sweetness with a kiss of honey. Taste is of grapefruit rind, honey, tangy pine and resin. There is a malty presence, but it is subtle. Medium bodied, somewhat peppery and a bit rough. FInishes pure bitterness, with just the light honey touch. Solid, quite bitter "rougher, but with tones of Hopslam" brew. 14.3

Very good IPA. Poured with the huge fluffy thick creamy long-lasting cream colored head, good lacing and a clear honey amber color. Aroma is hops and malt. Each swallow is very bitter upfront with some carbonic tang and then some sweetness at the end. Good body. Great drinking beer.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear dark amber gold with a thin white head and lacing in the glass, aroma is hop forward with a little bit of sweetness that comes through as well, not bad, flavor has a floral and citrus front end with a smooth finish, abv is well hidden, nice $8 4 pack if you ask me, well done.
