A - The appearance is not too pleasing which is a shame because this is an awesome beer. Pours a finger of off white head with a yellow gold colored beer. Just to LOOK at it you'd think it was a regular domestic brew.
S - Sweet oranges, grapefruit, lots of hops, an earthy herbal note, apples and a slight caramel in the back.
T - Sweet orange and grapefruit flesh followed by extremely crisp and bitter hops. The bitterness lingers for quite some time. Definitely more a bitter IPA than a sweet one to be sure.
O - A damned fine IPA, makes it onto my top the IPAs list definitely. Not for those new to IPAs though.
V - Four pack of bottles, medium/high value.

Pours a hazy honey color, with hardly any head. Aroma is restrained hops. Taste is malty, boozy and balanced by hops. Mouthfeel feel oily for an ipa, but not bad. Overall and balanced dipa with a kick of booze.

12oz bottle (great artwork on the label) poured into a snifter (unfortunately, not fresh--a few months past its prime); golden to tan in color; very little head and not much lacing; citric aroma but not strong; fairly smooth--not much carbonation; a citric, bitter hoppiness flavor but malt backbone comes through a bit in the end. Overall: A really enjoyable DIPA, which I regret not trying when it was fresher. Hop profile not as complex, interesting or unique as many other DIPAs but solid overall beer that beats many in its category. (9.0)

This is a dank, resiny, oily slick double IPA. Big malt on the front end with a bitter, bitter finish.
