look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Extremely light golden color. Slightly hazy but vibrant overall. One finger head with aggressive pour.

S: Beautiful, one of the best aromas I've ever gotten. Load of astringent fruity hops. Grapefruit, Papaya, Prune juice.

T: the taste matches the smell, except even more fruit. Biting bitterness all the way through, but especially on the back. It lingers on the tongue for quite a bit even thought it's not a "syrupy" hop presence. Reminds me of the same hop profile as 'sucks' except bigger and better. Hardly any malt.

M: Medium to thick-- Slick and oily at first, breaks down into slightly sticky lingering bitterness, near perfect.

O: My new favourite IPA-- severely underrated. I put this above Hopslam in a heartbeat.

Clear golden orange pour with a white head that fades down to a ring.

Huge citrus aroma. Grapefruit and orange are prominent. There is some honey and malt sweetness in there. Really nice aroma.

Taste is strong grapefruit and citrus rind. Slight herbal notes. There is subtle sweetness but the bitterness takes over, not in a bad way. Bitterness lasts.

Initially slick on the palate, but ends very dry. Slight alcohol warmth.

Really nice DIPA.

Poured into a FFF Alpha King glass. The beer its self is golden yellow and hazy with a thin white head about a finger thick. I can't say this beer is very pretty but it certainty is not ugly. The first smell is pine with citrus and grapefruit and hints of mango. This IPA is more on the piny side but there is a nice complexity to keep it from being one dimensional. The taste is earthy, sweet, piny, and fruity. One of the more complex tasting DIPAs I've had recently. I think a lot of DIPAs try to be hop bombs and pallet strippers rather then assertive and complex. The mouthfeel is a little thicker and sweeter then I prefer but it's still drinkable. Overall, this is one of the best DIPA buys out there. Its hard to turn it down when its fresh.
