22oz bottle dated 4/29/14 and purchased the very next day at City Beer Store for $6.99, wow that's fresh! Orange, slightly hazy with minute particulate, good lace and short head. Aroma of peach, alcohol, malts. Flavor is fruity hops, peach, alcohol, a little too astringent though. Overall a nice beer, super fresh but doesn't knock my socks off. Solid tho.

Bottled 1/21/14.

Pours a hazy dark honey orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, candied citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that leans more towards the herbal side of the hop spectrum in my opinion.

Very dark clear amber color with a white foam, not too abundant, poured in the Affligem chalice. A little lacing adds to the attractiveness. Filtered; no sediment. Lovely flowery aroma with some piney resins. Spritzy on the tongue with a medium malty body.

This is a darker, less sweet sort of DIPA. The taste of bark and herbs comes through the roasted malt. More grainy than most big IPAs. Some candied grapefruit peel, but not overly bitter. Hints of chestnuts and a whiff of fermenting pineapple. A little woody with some orange in the finish.

This gets better as it warms. An interesting mix of dark, yet flowery flavors. A surprisingly tasty brew that provides a lot of fruit and aromatics. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.
