COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rhizing Bines is a collaborative IPA using the best of both coasts: Carolina-grown red fife wheat and Dogfish Head’s continual-hopping from the East and Sierra Nevada’s estate-grown caramel malt and Torpedo dry-hopping from the west.

I really like this beer but it is not a double IPA or Imperial IPA. How about an Imperial ESB. It is way too malty. That said it is a great ESB, with lots of malt and hops, full mouth and marshmellow flavors. yellow golden color and fair head.

THOUGHTS: Quite underwhelming. Very interesting hop profile but it blended into the malts too much. I just thought it was an odd choice for a hop profile when you just release a glass made to showcase hop flavor and aroma. This beer has hop aroma and flavor no on is all that accustomed to. And I don’t know if the glass really makes these particular hops taste as good as more traditional hops do in this glass. Not to say you need to drink it from that glass, but the two products did come out about the same time — just sayin’. Some collaborations are incredible, but the three times these two guys got together have been disappointing to me. I guess it doesn’t help that I dislike melons. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a light, orangey amber with a large, fluffy, off-white head that mostly diminished an left good lacing. The aroma had light bread, grain, cereal and caramel; moderate floral, lemon, and melon hops; light other citrus hops; and hints of minty hops. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet and moderately bitter with an average duration. There was caramel, melon hops, hints of minty hops, lemon hops, other citrus hops, hints of resinous hops, cereal grains, berries, alcohol and pine hops. The light to medium body was oily and somewhat syrupy with soft yet tingly carbonation and a lightly metallic finish.

Suttree (5370) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Yellow, cloudy, with a ring of foam. Smells weird - cornbread and green peppers. Taste is corn, black peppers, and some woody, piney hops. Crisp finish. Not what I was expecting, but tasty.

thome50 (1176) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours a light golden with moderate white head. Aroma is lemon, grapefruit, pinesole. Taste is sweet but in a bad way for a DIPA. Pine, hay, grape come into play. Sweetness is again lingering. This is not something i’d come back to. Off. More DFH than Sierra Nevada.

(750ml bottle) hazy deep orange, soapy offwhite bubbles that are reminiscent of Sierra Nevada’s IPAs. Nose is on the malty side, candied citrus peel, caramel, bits of pine and grapefruit pulp. Taste of caramel, highly effervescent, bitter citrus peel that’s well balanced with the malt, I actually like the oily body and caramel malty finish. Nice beer but not world class.

matty (237) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2013
750 mL bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a white head. primarily a roasted/burnt caramel aroma with a slight hop background. Medium body, taste of caramel with some hop flavor. The caramel comes through on the finish. I was expecting a lot more from two outstanding breweries. Wasn’t impressed with this one.

Pours a light copper color with a small rocky beige head and nice clinging lace. Toasted malt aroma with some floral hops. Clean crisp complex bittersweet malt flavor upfront with hints of cardamom. Spicy citrus hops in mid taste. Nice dry hop finish. Nicely balanced and flavorful.

Bottle Ron shared. Dark gold. Syrupy palate. Nice look to it with an effervescence. A bit of booze. Okay.
