This stands as my current favorite Imperial IPA. The hops are balanced and there’s an excellent crisp ending.

Tap Cornerstone Barre VT - Orange copper in color. Dank pine sap aroma with notes of gumminess. Smooth coating mouthfeel. Great big hop bitterness without the overpowering astringency in some diPAs. Finishes with chewy wet fresh hop dankness.

12oz bought at the brewery into a rising tide glass, classic. Pours a golden glazed honey amber orange, looks great. Head is solid, a few inches, cloud white, simmers down to a nice full coating over the liquid and hovers like lillypads, lacing is there and visible, clinging to random areas. nice. Aroma of phat tropical juices, citrus, the like. Juicy hop presence, just how i like my dipas, fells like a can squees the hops myself, just a wonderful crisp and clean dipa from Maine. excellence all around. abv is generous and well recieved but not intruding. fits the bill, just awesome. Still feeling the phat citrus hop bomb that went off in my mouth. hops on hops in deed.

Surprisingly great DIPA on tap in Bar Harbor. Tons of juicy citrus on the nose. The taste is nicely sweet and tropical with grapefruit and grass without being abrasively bitter. Great beer.

Pours a dark orange with an off white lacing. The aroma is pungently citrus and bursting with pine notes. The flavor is cuttingly bitter and the palate is crisp. Overall awesome

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2015 Sticky is the word that comes to mind - sticky hops and sticky malt. There are hops absolutely everywhere, and it comes together beautifully with what?s a pretty strong malt background. This reminds me of some of the great Vermont DIPA?s, maybe with a little less complexity, but easily available.

On tap at the Threepenny. This has a great aroma that is rich, musky, sweet, & complex. The flavor is also complex but not as impressive with grapefruit dominating, and a little metallic flavor, plus some sweetness in the background. Very good.
