12 oz picked up today at the Brewforia Eagle tonight poured into my Funk Fest goblet... 1" head with decent honey gold brew. Aroma is nose hair coating citrus hops.. sorta thick pale malt Big body out of the gate.. thick for sure.. tons of grapefruit hoppiness with a more than enough malt.. piney hoppiness and a surprising amount of fruity hoppiness mid palate combines with grainy slightly sweet pale malts.. very rich.. with a finish that sorta drops off quickly.. the fruity hops linger for a bit.. but not nearly as long as I would expect for a brew of this thickness.. Despite my above negatives, this is a pretty nice DIPA right now... I prefer a little drier take on the style.. but this is a good beer.. cough... cough.. cough.. lower the mash temp... cough cough.

12 oz bottle poured. Pours a clear copper color with a thin foam head. Wet grain, malty aroma with some citrus. Very nice citrus sweet flavor. Juicy, though finishes on a bready note. Lingering grapefruit. Very nice IIPA here. Very enjoyable.

From the 750 ml golden foil covered bottle. The bottling date looks like 02/20/12 (!) Not sure how I missed that when I bought it or why it would still be on the shelf. Murky reddish-amber pour with lingering off-white head. Yeah, stale hops with a more m alt forward character and something akin to pipe tobacco. Medium. Same malty and muted hop flavor. Too bad I didnít get a fresh bottle. It became a drain pour.

Sampled from the tap at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Pours a hazy orange gold with an off-white head hat dissipates to the edges. Aroma has resinous earthy pine with a bit of bread and grain underlying. Flavor combines bread and resin with a growing earthy pine note.

A 12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip, the beer presents a dark apricot hue, strikingly clear, and with a porous and almost soapy looking off-white foam. Its depth is short-lived, the head settling, not disappearing but leaving a dignified blanket on the surface of the beer. The aroma is grapefruit with a hint of lemon, heavy spruce and some very grassy notes. Sharp, grasping. I canít say that this is my favorite aromatic experience with a dipa, but it certainly isnít unpleasant. I take my first sip, and the experience is a very dry bitter, the grapefruit and spruce coming alive in my mouth. The edginess of the spruce crawls up the sides of my tongue, dries the tip with a bite, and lays the groundwork for a long, drawn out finish. The medium body is creamy rather than an expected sticky, and is well carbonated without being too buzzy, carrying the flavors through to a very resiny afterward. I think that I would want to try this beer on tap. I wonder what itís gone through in the bottle, and believe that I would have a much better experience with this fresh from the brewery. All in all, a pretty darn good beer.

Pours a half finger of head on a hazy straw body. The aroma is big orange and lemon. The taste has a big malt backbone, moderate bitterness throughout but balanced. Finishes a little spicy. The texture is thicker. Nice.
