Pouring to a hazy orange, this double IPA offers an assertive nose of citrus, pine, caramel, and grapefruit. The head of foam is significant and it holds together for a nice long time, leaving lace on the glass as you consume.
This beer has, as expected, a taste every bit as assertive as its nose would lead you to believe. It offers a big hop taste of pine and citrus that doesn’t quit, backed by a medium malty body that emphasizes some caramel notes and then finishes with a hoppy persona that just keeps on giving.
One can find a good deal of complexity in this ale, but one thing I noticed is that the complexity becomes more pronounced if the beer is allowed to warm up just a bit. There is already a good deal of flavor at normal refrigeration temperatures, but the taste becomes even better if the beer is allowed to warm to about 50 degrees. The alcohol also becomes a little more pronounced, but the other flavors are more noticeable and more flavorful.
Some may find this beer a little over the top, but I find it just about right for a member of the double IPA family. It isn’t too extreme, but it definitely packs in the hops and is memorable and recommended to hopheads everywhere.

A: Hazy, dark copper colored-beer with a white head. I get a good amount of lace; the head dissipates pretty quickly.
S: Smells are a fabulous melding of fragrant floral and citrus hops plus rich, caramel maltiness. I could happily smell this all day long...
T: The taste has a sharp bitterness of the citrus/fruity hops, as in grapefruits, but also has the malty caramel flavors noted in the aroma.
M: Full-bodied, the beer finishes with the same themes of resinous (ha!) hops and malt undertones.
O: Bold DIPA with a great balance -- loved it!
