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 - This beer is a beautiful translucent dark amber, with a fine, almost-white head. Very rich color!
S - I get a lot of plum, dark fruits, some grape... slight hints of chocolate or toffee. Not a strong smell, but pleasant.
T - Same as smell, but the hops are much more present. Aftertaste is fruity and hoppy, and sorta dark for a DIPA. Alcohol is masked pretty well as a 10% ABV, but there is a pretty noticeable warmth in the throat.
MF - Smooth and slightly on the heavy side. Medium hop oils on the palate. Carbonation is medium-light, just right for my liking.
Overall this DIPA is heavier and fruitier than others that I've had, it leans toward being a Belgian almost- with much more hops. It's unique for its style and much under-appreciated. Maybe this was a good batch or something. Usually I agree with BA reviews but I'm seeing much more in this beer than what I see here. It's quite enjoyable and I recommend picking it up!

3.35/5 rDev -10.4%

A- The deep color is impressive. The clarity is interesting. It pours a bit sloppy with no real head. Bottle states best by 7/8/14.
S- Very weak aroma. I can smell the hops, but it doesn't hit me very hard. There is nothing particularly off putting, but it doesn't grab my attention either.
T- The taste has some citrus flavor. It doesn't sit and stay awhile. It passes very quickly with no impressive aftertaste. It's a refreshing beer for such a high alcohol content. It's smooth, not overpowering. Doesn't leave me wanting a second.
M-It holds a cream feel in my mouth. There is a spotty feeling, doesn't fill my taste buds. It hits one corner, then leaves quickly. Gives it a mysterious undertone.
O- I would enjoy this beer in late August on a porch in northern Wisconsin. I appreciate it for what it is/wants to be. It's very non-conformist, I'm going to do what I want- kinda beer. It's just being what it wants to be, not impressing, but not unreliable either. I would drink it again, just not one after another. It's really good at hiding the high alcohol content.
