Herbal, fruity hop aroma and flavor; plus, some spicy hop flavor. Sweet, grainy malt. Too sweet--but otherwise a nice flavor.

crackedmachine (481) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottled 4/12/13. Pours a dark but transparent amber, with a foamy, long-lasting light-tan head. Aroma is sweet, dank, resinous...caramel and pine. Flavor is sweet, resinous, piny with some fruit elements in the sweetness. Moderately bitter finish lingers for a bit, with the bitterness becoming more pronounced. A really nice, resinous DIPA.

750 ml bottle pours a dark amber color with a nice white head. Aromas of pine, resin, sweet malt. Full bodied, hoppy with a nice sweet malt to balance it out, ver nice.

tmoreau (4593) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Shared 750 ml. bottle, and poured to snifters with a hazed, orange/amber hue, and some modest, off white head foam & spotty lacing. The aroma was some dank grain, citrus & resin, caramel, and malty sweetness. Medium bodied, the flavor notes were similar to the aroma’s, with still a decent hop bitterness & dryness for being approximately a year old. The alcohol presence, on the other hand, seemed to have waned a bit. Thanks, Craig!

From the corked, caged bottle dated 02/27/13. It pours a beautiful bronze-amber with a tremendous, puffy off-white head that lingers. The aroma presents itself with floral hops but in a mild, mellow way. The body is medium to bold. The taste starts out with a slight malty character and develops swiftly into a hoppy one that ends slightly dry. The alcohol is well-integrated into the flavor. An IPA I could have often.

I first have to preface everything by stating that this beer has a bottled on date of 6/11/12 and from my experience this style is best as fresh as possible. I purchased it from State Line less than two weeks ago and never expected it to be this old. I should have checked for a date but I digress. Pours a VERY cloudy almost bronze color with ample head that dissipated quickly leaving substantial lacing. When I look closely I can see thousands of tiny particles floating around. Aroma is mainly roasted and caramel malts along with a hint of pine. Taste for the most part follows the nose and has some bitterness but it is evident that this beer has seen better days. Medium bodied with a sweet finish (something I don’t expect from this style). I realize this beer would be much better fresh and I plan to try another at which time I will edit this review. Still, I don’t expect to rate it highly because I prefer the west coast style and this seems to be the opposite with the strong malt presence.

Fairly straightforward DIPA, but with a nice long finish. Quite dry, but in a good way.

3.8
RedSox2004 (1961) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours a deep reddish brown/mahogany with a thick tan head that dissipated to a solid film and left nice lacing. Pine hops were the strongest aroma with roasted malts clearly present. Big piney hops bitterness with a strong maltiness that lingered in the background. Medium body, light carbonation, smooth creamy mouthfeel, and a lingering caramel sweetness.

Great IPA! Crystal clear copper with a huge fluffy white head and some nice lacing. Very good.
