Aroma - big caramel nature with the aggressive mix of pungent and pine hops.
Appearance - the body is a hazed orange. The head is off-white and 2+" and settles very slowly. Scattered lacing.
Taste - is rich with a carameled malt - with a slight candy corn nature. The hops are of the Pacific Northwest variety - pungent, bitter, floral, and piney is the mixture here.
Palate - medium body, oily feel with a thick texture, the carbonation is average, the finish is bitter and long in nature.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled 06/09/16 so 2 months on it. Should still be decent. Pours honey orange, big white head. Aroma is orange, booze, resin, pine, floral notes, some sweet citrus. Flavor is boozy, sweet residual sugar, orange, orange rind, and some pine. Very malt heavy. Clearly a bit past its prime. But still an excellent beer.

On tap at the Brewpub with Patty for dinner on way to south Dakota. Pours hazy golden with heavy white head/carbonation. Aroma is strong hop forward. Tastes like a malt bomb with nice balance of bitterness. Great imperial IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another one of those beers that I enjoyed a number of times thinking that I had previously reviewed it. This time on tap at Lunar Brewing Co., dispensed to a snifter displaying a clear, golden hue, with a fluffy layer of fairly persistent, soft white head foam, and clingy, wavy spray as lacing. The nose was expressive esters as tropical fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, and pit variety, with some resin, and malt sweetness. Medium+ bodied, with appropriate carbonation, the taste added a pronounced citrus & rind bitterness that lingered, decent alcohol presence, and just enough malt sweetness to smooth and take a slight edge off of both. One of the more "balanced" DIPAs that you’ll find.
