This one is extra smooth... as if you werenít to notice. Color: copper. Head: Thin and white, but who cares? Its a smooth, dangerous beer with little aroma. Itís an imperial made sessionable. Floral and cool. Watch your back. Itís dangerous to drink beers this good.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a high, fine-grained, smooth lacy white head. Nose is very perfumey; lime, some grapefruit, amber incense, and frankincense. Round and oddly smoky on the tongue; there is hops present, but not as intense as I expect, nor is there malty sweetness present to balance it out. Itís bitter, but itís an acrid, aromatic bitterness. Very odd.

rougeau13 (2424) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Clear amber with a thin, bubbly, eggshell head. Nice citrusy aroma with some caramel and pineapple. The taste is a little thin and a touch harsh; fruity sweetness and some bitterness that would probably be very subtle if this beer had a little more backbone. Medium bodied and slick, finishing a little bit off. Not bad, itís just a bit thin.

deyholla (9638) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a clear gold with a slight amber hue and tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a lot of bitter pine and resin with backing notes of grass and grain. Flavor has a nice combination of bitter, resin, sweet grains and grass.

IndianaRed (3430) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 14, 2014
On tap at the River Room, Boise. Clear deep orange amber with a full lasting light tan head. Chunky thick lacing. Moderate fresh hop flavor and plenty bitter. Fully attenuated and somewhat dry. Pleasant late bitter bite. A pretty easy double

On tap at whole foods. Nice amber brown with no haze. Nice off white head with a slight citrus aroma. Sturdy malt backbone that carries a solid hop profile. Nice bitter finish with a medium smooth palate.

12oz 4-pack picked up at the COOP over the weekend... Glad to FINALLY have this one in Boise. Enjoyed for the first time tonight in my slim tulip... 1" off white head.. goes away fairly fast... the brew is light amber. Nose doesnít have as much hoppy punch as I expect from a PNW DIPA... still no faults, it is nicely balanced and shows a respectable amount of tropical fruity hops that are carried nicely by a generous pale malt presence. Flavor has a good bitter backbone... surprisingly dry throughout and has light pale malty notes that die back quickly.. hops are tropical fruits with hints of pithy grapefruit... Really, this is a shortlived and very drinkable DIPA... I never would have guessed this +8% and I never would have pegged this as a serious contender DIPA, instead it is in the incredibly drinkable realm.. I appreciate it a bunch, but I personally like a little more fun in the flavor spectrum.

3fourths (8962) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Pine sap and grapefruit and orange jelly hop-forward nose with a rye / seed / spice character. Full body, rich mouthfeel, C-note resin and bitterness. Sweet and bitter and a little savory. Green leaf / spinach finish. Amber body. From bottle.

Absolutely great brew! Top heavy head. Hoppy. Boozy. It is full-bodied. Smooth washdown. Begins as it ends, strong. Enduring, lingering flavor for the palate. Definitely keeping in step with their Barleywine, which is another solid beer.
