comparing this tonight against Sierra Nevada Hoptimum and Firestone Walker Double Jack... tought competition!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a wine goblet, the color is orange, and very clear, with at thin head. Aroma is citrus dominant with warm mouthfeel from the high alcohol content. The flavor is well balance, with a slightly bitter aftertaste, but very enjoyable.

This is a good IIPA, probably in my top 20, but against the other two I'm drinking tonight, it's in last place.

3.94/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Had on draft at Lures on 7/2/14 in a short wide mouth glass

A-Pours cloudy amber with a decent off white frothy head that lingers long and leaves excellent lacing.

S-Aroma is pine, grapefruit, sweet floral and citrus hoppiness.

T-Taste is heavy sweet, with grapefruit, honey, and pine with a light malt.

M-Average carbonation, medium body, slick texture and a long sticky finish with overtones of grapefruit and honey.

O-Overall a decent DIPA a great blend of hops and malt that hide the 10%.

Serving type: on-tap

3.61/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: deep orange/amber - darker than I would expect from a DIPA; 1 finger head that receded quickly to a thin film; nice lacing;

S: floral and tropical fruit - pineapple and grapefruit;

T: not what I expected from the nose - earthy; not a lot of bitterness, but more than what I would expect from 10% ABV; the alcohol is there, but muted;

M: on the heavy side of medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: enjoyable, but a little too boozy for my taste;

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours an amber read with minimal head. Decent lacing. Starts creamy, turns full-bodied. This is a solid beer. It goes down smooth and sweet. The maltiness serves to cover up the boziness well. This is a really decent beer. I'd give it a try if I were you.
