look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A - Hazy and dull bronze-orange brew with a flimsy dish-soap water head. Swirling brings up a thin cap that goes away pretty quickly, leaving some wet spotty lace on the glass.
S - I could smell the orange-y hop aromas when I was pouring it into the glass, and now that I'm sticking my nose into it, the grapefruit and mandarin orange notes are there in full force. This has a nice array of citrus fruit flavors...mandarin orange, halved grapefruit with sugar piled on it (the way my mom used to eat grapefruit), mango, guava, and a little kiwi. This doesn't scour your olfactory nerves with scathing hop insanity like other DIPAs do, and that's a bit disappointing. It also lacks the big biscuity malt backbone that some others have. This smells good, and I like the tropical fruit-salad aroma.
T - The hops are much more aggressive than the nose suggests. Big time grapefruit and mandarin orange. Sweet and sugary, but like the nose, it doesn't have quite the malt backbone to really support the super-hoppy citrus fruit flavors. It is damn good though, like tropical fruit salad with sugar. The alcohol is transparent, and that's saying something for such a big beer!
M - Full bodied, oily, and extremely dry on the finish. The carbonation is almost non-existent, the body is oily, sandy and gritty, and the finish is very dry, astringent, and full of bitter hop flavors with a touch of alcohol warmth. I like it!
D - A great hop-lovers brew with unique fruity aromas and flavors. Not he best DIPA out there, but it sure ain't bad. This is one of my favorite styles of beer, and I would have this again for sure.

A - 3.75 - NIce golden clear color with a big white head that sticks around forever, leaves a nice lumpy lacing too.
S - 3.5 - Smells like dirty, earthy hops, with bready, raisin-y malt in the background. It says enjoy by July 18th, 2014 so I'm assuming this is how it's supposed to smell.
T - 3.5 - Dirty, earthy hops, with overly sweet malt in the background, and alcohol - a lot of it. This is probably close to the worst IIPA I've had. I'm trying to figure out where the rank taste is coming from because I love amarillo and centennial hops. Maybe they used a bunch of sugar to increase the ABV? Maybe the wheat malt (I've never used it in an IPA)?
M - 3.5 - Alc is so present it ruins the beer. Medium mouthfeel. Aftertaste is bitter, just bitter. No definition.
O - 3.5 - With a ton of Amarillo hops this beer should taste like straight up orange juice. Instead, it's just sickeningly sweet and dry undefined bitterness.
