Received in a very nice box today from JxExM.. Thanks a bunch Justin!! Best by July 9th, 2013... I would guess that is pretty damn fresh. Poured into my HotD goblet... 2 finger sorta yellowish head has great retention and lacing... the brew is hop-hazed orange.

Huge piney/grapefruit zest hoppiness is sorta muted by a seemingly IMO too big malt profile... plenty of pale malt and lesser toasty maltiness.

Bejeezus... bitter, but still pretty inviting... again big piney hoppiness with pithy grapefruit.. finish is sorta lingering floral hoppiness... There is still plenty of malt on the palate, but it is in the background and only helps carry the hops... Somehow this never really becomes a palate ripper, instead it is honestly pretty balanced.

Thicker than many DIPA's but a good carbonation asks for another sip.

Thanks again Justin, my tasting group has had these a few times, but I always wanted to give one a proper review.

Picked up this guy after (finally) seeing it on the shelf. Tall 12oz skinny Red Bull-like can, feel alittle self-conscious like I'm not "hip" enough to open it but I proceed and pour into a glass

Appearance- Nice 2 finger white head (slightly rough pour) with good retention and nice lacing on a hazy yellow-orange body...looks very intriguing

Smell- Sweet malts, citrus and a twinge of alcohol at the end, all accompanying an ever-present grass/pine...extremely inviting

Taste- Follows like the nose, strong caramel malt profile, abit of citrus, abit of alcohol but a strong piney bitterness that lingers (little too long for my liking)

Mouthfeel- Think it could benefit from a slightly more sticky sweet body but nevertheless smooth as hell and with alcohol well hidden (too hidden?? I just semi-succesfully tried to stand up after downing a few)

Overall- Very good brew but not great...lacks the balance and/or flavor to put it over the top but at $9.99 for a 4-pack very reasonable and certainly worth a try

A-Golden yellow color with a faint haziness. Two finger head that leaves a nice cap.

S-Pine and earthy hop aroma with a slight spice.

T-Light malted flavor with a nicely balanced hop flavor. Nice sweet punch with the hoppy bitterness of pine and resin.

M-Medium body with moderate carbonation.

O-Solid double IPA, I like the subtle sweetness that helps balance the beer out. Very drinkable for 9.1%

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

5 months outside of the best by so I don’t know where that falls, but seems reasonable enough to drink.

Poured fairly aggressively into a Struise glass giving way to a big white head and a orange/coppery colored beer that is clear and has lots of carbonation going on.

You get the namesake deep dank and resinous piney hop smell but there is also some big sweeter orange fruit with orange, peach, cantaloupe, and grapefruit going on. Herbal, a little spicy, and a little biscuity as well.

The taste is wonderful. It follows the nose with a big resinous pine and sweeter fruit character of peach and orange. It gets herbally as well. Some crackery biscuit type of malt character. Interesting.

Drinks fairly smooth and the bitterness isn’t too great. This is an interesting DIPA.
