Poured into a pint glass from he bottle

Very average looking beer light off amber with a nice head that disapates quickly leaveing a nice laceing down the glass

Smell is supurb big hop nose with some sweeter fruit notes and come more lemon citrus

Flavor is amazing as well the hops are huge in the front and middle that gives way to a nice bitter finish and a small hint of sweetness at the very back end. very complex beer the bitterness of the hops blends seamless to the sweeter flavors.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin for a double IPA but not to bad flavors are amazing.

This is one of the most drinkable DIPA's i have ever drank it goes down alot smoother than most and might even be a good one for people to come from bigger standards to doubles

12oz single bottled 12/6/10, reviewed on 2/16/11.

Pours a very cloudy gold. Not translucent at all. Lots of nice lacing on the glass.

Smells like sweet citrus fruit.

Taste is full of bitter grapefruit and some pine. No real malt bill noticeable here. Neither too sweet not too bitter, which makes this one a really nice DIPA. Finishes with some lasting bitterness. Surprisingly, the ABV is nowhere to be found despite being high.

Mouthfeel is medium, thinner than expected for the robust flavor.

This is a very good DIPA--it's not sweet and cloying or enamel-destroying bitter. Probably the most drinkable 9% ABV-plus beer I've had.

Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a nice white head that lingers and laces.

Smells of tropical fruit, some caty-ness, and pine. A nice mix of hop character and a big aroma.

Up front bitter fruit, stone fruit that goes into more of the same in the middle with a citric/orange character that ends with notes of pine and grapefruit and lingering bitterness. Has lighter fruit notes and a heavy/pine bitterness with just enough malt to balance.

Medium to heavy body with medium carbonation work well enough. It is noticeably warm and bitter...making it seem not as refined as some of the better DIPAs.

A good DIPA that hits a lot of the great hop flavors, minus citra overload, but it is heavy and highly drinkable. Not that that is a bad thing, but it is different from a lot of more quaffable DIPAs. I like it and would get it again.

(12oz bottle courtesy of jcnd9803!). Pours hazy golden with white head. Aroma is huge grapefruit, mango and tropical fruits. Love it! Taste is sweet with big bright hops adding a pleasant layer of bitterness. Lighter bodied with slick texture and bitter finish. This is one great DIPA.
