Appearance: pours with a very large beige head that settles into a nice dense pillow, the beer is a very slightly hazy average gold color, very good head retention
Aroma: very strong grass and pine hits you right away, hints of alcohol, possibly even chocolate, smells good
Taste: bitter citrus and pine, some alcohol, malty backbone,
Palate: average carbonation, heavy mouthfeel, strong bitter backbone
Overall: drinks like an imperial ipa, very bitter with a strong malt presence as well, very strong Aroma, works well in the cold weather

Bottle shared with northropfrye. Colour of cognac or whiskey or something. Lacing is appealing. Luminous and entrancing colour like a jewel. Flavour is filled with sweet bitterness that keeps me coming back for more. I’d like to have more of it.

Tap at New Bohemia. Truly a great representation of the style. A visually appealing beer with an orange color and well-clinged lacing. Incredibly smooth and easy to drink. Malt driven sweetness but that presence of hop throughout. This is a very solid brewery and I would put this double IPA up as their best effort.

Bottle pours a nice amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is amazing with resinous hops taking the profile. Taste is more IPA than American Strong with pine resin and some citrus notes. Very well balanced, but quite bitter. Body is medium to light and the beer is super well blended with all the malts. A very good complement to the pungent hops. Overall, I am pleasantly surprised by this one. Love it.
