The beer comes in an amber orange.

The beer hits of grapefruit, orange upfront, along with a reasonable sweetness of caramel and breadiness. The back end hits of lingering pine and dank bitterness.

A solid West Coast DIPA, but loaded with a bit much malty sweetness.

I'd like to state first that the head on this thing is ridiculous. I can barely pour it with any pace.

Alright. This is good. Solid fruit flavors with a good biscuity backing to it. Very solid beer. Would get again.

Bottled November 12th 2014, so this is old for a DIPA. But it was on sale cheap, and it's well-thought of, so I took a chance that it would be an IPA that does not suffer too much with age.

Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a: Translucent Orange with an inch thick white head which receded to thick surface foam and dense lacing.

s; Fairly strong pine and citrus.

t: Pine and citrus with orange notes over a solid bready malt base. Bitterness lingers somewhat on an otherwise dry finish.

m: Medium, very good body, lots of carbonation tingle.

o: A potent DIPA whichm, perhaps due to the age of the bottle reviewed, becomes a little harsh, but mellows out later.

On tap at at the Publick House in Boston, MA.

This one pours a golden yellow-ish/orange, with a tight, bubbly half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

This one smells pretty fragrant, with some orange and grapefruit hop flavors, with a pretty significant herbal aroma, too.

This one tastes pretty good, but has a slightly disconcerting watery, almost flat finish. It doesn't finish as fully as I would've liked it. Up front, the flavor is great, though, tons of juicy fruit, a little bit of dankness, etc, but the finish is a bit too flat, unfortunately.

This is medium bodied, with a well-carbonated, juicy mouthfeel. This is pretty drinkable, but a little watery on the finish.

This is a fantastic double IPA. On tap at liberty taproom in Exeter . Not overly bitter for a double. Goes down real clean, drank another. I'm more into the grapefruity doubles like victory's hop ranch but I am happy to spend on this.
