Best before 7/5/14. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a burnt orange with nice clarity; fluffy off white head that leaves nice retention and solid lacing. The aromas are full of fresh citrus. Lots of orange and grapefruit. Some pine along with some caramel malts in the background. The hop flavors really come through in the taste. There's also a very solid bitterness to this one. It's slightly sweet with a solid malt backbone, but the hops still clearly shine. More fresh grapefruit and orange zest. There's a solid earthiness to this one too. Some grass along with some pine resin. There's a slight warmth in the finish and it's slightly spicy. Mouthfeel is great. It's full-bodied with a very creamy and fluffy feel to it. The carbonation is moderate and it's very smooth. It's fun to drink.
This is a pretty solid DIPA. The aromas and flavors are good, but not exactly unique or mind blowing. It's an enjoyable beer though nonetheless. It's well crafted.

4.13/5 rDev +9%

Served in a snifter. Vintage bottle, dated 05/22/13.
Appearance: A slight hazy amber body, It's hazy because of the pour which was pretty rough. Head almost two finger's length with your usual white color. Looks beautiful.
Smell:Bland citrus and yeast scent that is more potent as the brew warms up. Good but not something to roll head over heels for.
Taste: Complex and bitter. Grapefruit feel, a little sour that might feel a touch sweet. This might also be because of the age of the beer. Regardless very good.
Mouth: Medium to full bodied after-taste and very sticking.
Overall: Very good brew, wish I could bought more of these when I had the chance. If you see it and you love IPAs I can promise it will not disappoint you. Salud!
