(Served in a tulip)
A- This beer pours a hazy orange body with a thin cream head that fades to a ring after a few sips but sticks to the glass with each sip. There is a sluggish microcarbonation.

S- The new sneaker green hops turns woody and pungent as it finishes with some softer green citrus notes.

T- The green musty pine wood hops has some grass notes to it in the finish. There is a nice fresh pale malt hint and some candy grapefruit notes that show up as it warms aswell.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle carbonation but no alcohol heat.

O- This beer has a nice rich hop character with a strong malt support but it is not bitter so it is really sessionable.

One of four cans sent to me by my boy, Lumdog. Served up in a fluted mug.

A: Pours up a honey colored/amber body. held to the light, more reds push through. The body is mostly clear with just a bit of chill haze on the glass. The pour got me a perfect two fingers of off white to slightly yellowed head. Holds up very well and has incredible stick to it, notching the glass all the way down. Beautiful pour.

S: Sad to report it is a bit light in the category. With that said, it remains very appetizing. Mostly holds up with some big caramel and honey sweetness. Pine resin balances that out a bit, along with some citrus notes. Everything is light, but still very nice.

T: Once again, we start with the malts. Honey and caramel malts seem to dominate. Sweetness is rampant. The hops then make their presence known. It starts as if it will only exist in the aftertaste, but these hops have a characteristic I liken to some chilies. At first bit, they aren't hot, but as you eat they grow in heat and bring the pain. The hops do the same. That aftertaste quality slowly builds with each sip and each can put down. Then it completely takes over the palate. Strong and sticky. Great drinking experience.

M: Medium in feel with a medium carbonation. The feel is sticky and sweet, and almost dries completely out with each sip. ABV brings some heat but that gets lost a bit in the hop bite. Aftertaste is compounding pine resin and bitterness.

OA: Sure . . . this is not your West Coast DIPA that destroys the palate after just a sip. With that said, there is nothing wrong with that. This beer builds and creates its own story on the palate. It welcomes you with sweetness but keeps you coming back with increasing bitterness. Just a fantastic beer and drinking experience. Incredibly easy drinking. I am a fan of this beer.

Big up yoself, adam! Wouldn't have this beer without your generosity, so mad cheers go out to ya, BOOOYEEEEE! Poured from a 12oz tallboy can (dated best before 7/30/12, which makes it super fresh!!) which makes this beer on first glance look suspiciously like it could actually be an energy drink.

A: Pours a gorgeous medium amber/red color body that has wonderful clarity. A really puffy and frothy tan head builds to three fingers height before dissipating, leaving sticky globs of lacing all along the inside walls of my glass. JUst incredible looking stuff.

S: Pine resin, slight citrus pith, light toasted caramel/sugary sweetness, and some alcohol esters all come together really nicely to form the aroma of Resin. Just oozing freshness in the nose, has me salivating over taking a sip. Not the usual citrus bomb most DIPAs are these days.

T: Taste follows very closely in step with the smell, maybe only falling a bit short it the pine resinous intensity implied in the aroma. Nicely balanced by some of that caramely, lightly toasty maltiness mentioned above. Not much citrus to be found, only hint in there. Me likey!

M: This beer really flexes its resinous nuts in the body. Super lush, juicy, and sticky but with a moderate carbonation and balancing sweetness helping cut the bitterness down to damn near dangerously drinkable levels. It coats the tongue and lingers a bit on the finish, with some moderate (for the style) matching bitterness accompanying things. I could easily down a 4 pack without thinking twice.

OI: Impressive stuff on many levels. I find myself wishing for a touch more aroma and flavor hops (or maybe just less malt sweetness to back off on the balance a tad), but that being said, this is a wonderfully, dangerously drinkable DIPA. Definitely recommended for the Furley's among us who like some balance to their hoppy brews. Would also be a GREAT introductory DIPA for someone new to the style.
