The beer had a very profound aroma of pine resin in the nose (along with secondary floral notes) due to the overwhelming use of hops. The beer poured a crystal clear copper color. The creamy carbonation was nice along with good head retention. This beer definitely fit into the Double IPA category, as it had the necessary malt, hops and alcohol to back this claim. Again, flavors of pine needles and resin from the hops featured nicely. The beer was pretty straightforward in its flavor: there were no roasted malts and/or bread-like flavors. The beer was medium in body and mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and slight creaminess in the palate. It also had a nice, smooth and noticeable alcohol warmth in the aftertaste. The overall flavors were sharp and clean from beginning to end – a standard and tasty Double IPA.
