Possibly a bad bottle, but the pour was miserable. Extremely thick head. Doesn't really taste like a DIPA, but it's not a bad beer.

Very malty, it overwhelms the hops. So there is basically no hop taste. Tastes worst than Sierra Nevada boot camp dipa

Interesting DIPA. The thing is with this beer, it doesn't feel like a DIPA at all. Weak head on the beer, and despite an ABV of 9.7, mouth feel is very light as well as the nose. I liked the flavor: lots of citrus notes, especially lemon and bitter orange. I definitely didn't expect what i got with this beer. I'm glad i tried it, but probably wouldn't get it a second time. Interesting note: at the market where i picked this up, a tag advertised a RateBeer score of 97. Pretty drastic difference from beer advocate.....BA's rating is 77 "just OK" with user average reflecting the same. I knew there was a reason i preferred BA to RateBeer.

Aroma and taste are a bit onion like. I expected a citrusy west coast ipa. Color is copper and clear with white sticky head. I guess I don't care for the onion-vegetable hop flavor and smell.

Just okay. In a market where DIPAs are everywhere, this one does not stand out. Low aroma, body is too light. You could do better for the money.

awful upfront, awful finish--like eating ragweed and then licking a 2x4
