Copper murky, beige head. Smells of pine cones, honey, citrus zests, juicy fruits and malts. Medium to heavy sweet, woody and piney, oily texture. Heavy bitter, piney and zesty; lots of resins. Delicious stuff

Bottle. Pours a very cloudy brown color with a smallish white head on it. Nose is quite hop forward with some very bitter resiny hops dominating and making for a very bitter aroma. Taste is also decently bitter, though it tastes a little old, like the hops have turned a bit. Decent, but seems a little too aged.

(Bottle). I must start by saying: Fuck Napa Smith’s commercial description! Certainly this is a good beer ..! but not like their description. The hops are prominent, but not extreme, they have a nice mellow tone that fits well with the malt flavor. Bitterness is soft and subdued, in a very nice way. This is not an extreme hop bomb, but rather a well-balanced IPA. The taste is sweet malt with hints of caramel, overripe fruit and figs mixed with hops. The aftertaste is a bit oily bitterness. What I really like about this beer is the subdued tone in both the smell and the taste!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Epic Beer Festival 2013. Pour is clear orange with a small cream-colored head and decent lacing. Caramelly, grapefruity, orange, a touch of citrus, bready and biscuity aroma. Somewhat stale hoppy, grapefruity, caramel, bready, and grass with a heavy bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not really my type of DIPA.
