Poured on draft into a 13 oz tulip. Pours a beautiful hazy golden wih a thick head. Nose is hop heavy and loaded with citrus. Taste follows the nose closely and its solid. The mouthfeel is mad bitter but I enjoy it. Overall this is great.Definitely try it

Pours a a dark yellow with just the faintest copper color and a very nice white head. It appears to be sticky and fluffy like a cloud. As I drink more the lacing adds a nice look to the glass.

As soon as I popped off the cap it was a burst of grapefruit and fresh floral aromas. Very sweet notes and it smells more like white grapefruit than pink.

The taste is tart like a grapefruit but very delicious. There is a sweet finish that is dry and pungent. I'm getting lots of citrus and pine from the hops but that is what I expected. There is a warming feeling in my stomach but the alcohol is not overally noticable. As I drink more the tartness is making my mouth pucker.

This is a smooth drinking double ipa and it goes down well. The aftertaste is strong and bitter. More of a grapefruit finish than pine and there is an earthy tone to this beer. Very fresh and overall a solid double ipa.

I'm not sure if I'm blown away by this but I would recommend this as a great example of the style.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass.

A: Pours a nice honey color with minimal head and almost no lacing.

S: Lots of citrus and pine. Lemon, orange, and grapefruit mixed with the earthiness of the hops.

T: All hops up front with nice citrus balanced with a nice malt backbone.

M: Medium body that coats nicely. Refreshing to drink.

O: Really nice DIPA. Will add this to my list of ones to seek out.
