look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Served in a 16oz. snifter glass.
Appearance: Right off the bat is comes off a little darker than most imperials, amber but slightly dark. It is still transparent than most with a heavy head at the beginning coming off light orange tinted white...maybe 2/3" with a vigorous pour.
Smell: A light pine comes off rich but leaves the nose pretty quick.
Taste: At first taste you qill immediately notice how smooth this is. The heavy maltiness kicks in within seconds. Heavy grapefruit but not as bitter as most.
Mouth: A real nice medium carbonation, for an IPA this brew is a tad dry which i honestly don't mind. How sticky is it, very...I like it a lot.
Overall: This beer, I sampled it before filling up my growler and liked it a lot. After close to finishing my first glass I am loving it. It is smooth for an imperial but you definitely feel the effects, all i need is steak and I am happy. Salud!

Pours a clear amber color with a light brownish hue. The khaki colored head is tight and creamy looking and left some nice webby lacing on the glass.
The aroma is quite hoppy. Mixture of grapefruit, tropical fruit and grass. Nice juicy aroma. Some honey notes from the malt.
The taste is of a big bready malt with some honey and brown sugar sweetness. Grapefruit and pine is the hop profile that I am picking up. Some resin in the finish. More of an earthy hop profile than what I picked up in the aroma. Its a good hop profile but not my favorite as I prefer more citrus flavor.
Moderate body with tingly carbonation. Sweet on the palate but has plenty of hoppy bitterness to offset. Piney/resiny/asprin bitterness in the finish.
A well made DIPA. Not quite in my wheelhouse but I don't want to fault them on that too much. Its worth a purchase.

Tried this at the brewery.
A - Pours coppy with a high foam. Good lacing and despite the dark color there is clarity. Minimal carbonation visible.
S - Scents of fresh pine and oily hops is present. Has a bit of a spicy smell to it.
T - Initial flavors of citrusy sweet fruit gives way to a pure blast of hops. This is certainly hop foward, and a classic east coast DIPA.
M - Raspy, though very drinkable. This has a nice bitter bite at the end. For the style it is quite smooth.
O - A great take on the style by the local folks and I grabbed a growler for the Superbowl. I'll definitely try this again, as its likely to be the freshest IPA I can get my hands on. Try it, and Take the Oath!

Had this on tap at local watering hole. Poured with might. Off white uneven head. Heavy fruit nose. Sticky resin. Booze shining through. Heavy booze in taste. Big hop whallop. Sticky sweet malt. Heavy caramel in finish. Heat from alcohol in the end. Overall a bit too big needs more finesse.
BOOZY HOP BOMB WITH POTENTIAL

On draft at Bobbique, Patchogue, New York.
Poured a medium copper hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured a resinous citric hop with notes of pine, grapefruit and orange.
The flavor was clearly hop forward with waves of balmy citrus. The moderate round malts were detectable but clearly an afterthought for the palate.
The mouthfeel was typical of the style.
Overall a very user friendly hop bomb. Very tasty.
