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.

Top notch DIPA. Had on tap at Kaiser Tiger, Chicago. The appearance is bright, hazy burnt orange. The nose is all citrus and pungent hops. The punchy hops are backed up with a slight sweetness that balances out the bitterness. Massively drinkable.

On tap at beechwood bbq in Seal Beach. Crisp citrus hoppiness. A staple DIPA that I have enjoyed several times.
