Picked up a 4-pack in a trade with a buddy in Maryland. Poured into an Odell's branded tulip glass.

Pours a hazed apricot hue with a fat white head, good retention and lacing coats the glass. Smell is super danky up front, grapefruit, carmel malt. Taste is super danky in the hop department (as expected from the nose), apricot, lemon with a mild malt back that balances this one nicely while letting the hops run the show, and not a trace of the 8.5% ABV. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lightly carbonated, finishes extremely dry with lingering bitterness from all those hops! Overall an outstanding Double IPA and I live in the "Land of IPA's". A perfect balance of sweet malt and resinous hops, with hops winning out in the end. Wish I could get these out on the West!

Tulip

A: Very hazy muted orange color. Full finger of off white head. Probably from tulip glass. Well carbed though. Sticky lacing.

S: Nose is awesome. Dripping tropical fruits: grapefruit, pineapple, overripe peach, etc. Pine. Sweetness.

T: Good bitterness right up front on the tip of the tongue. Really getting those fruity hops. Lots of grapefruit and mango. Sweetness. Malt bill really makes this smooth an cuts through that bitterness. Dangerously easy to drink. Finish is clean and dry. Some lingering fruity hops.

M: Medium bodied.

Bursts of tangerine jump out of the glass. Golden, slightly orange hue with a nice one inch foamy white head. Inviting to drink for certain. When agitated, still get the tangerine specific scent. Really enjoyable. Body is well balanced with no hint of that ABV. Bright citrus and limited bitterness for a DIPA. I could drink this all night. Only minimally fading at this point, so seek out and drink now. Great beer.
