5/5 rDev +32.3%
Preamble - This is a 5 across the board for me. It's a grail beer for me along with Stone's IPA.
Poor - Nice frothy poor developing a good three finger head. Color is a perfect clear amber and the lacing is sticky.
Nose - Tropical fruit.
Taste - Tropical fruit, Very well balanced, nice sweet malt backbone; with a delicious cascade/centennial citrus/tropical fruit hop taste. For the ABV this is an awesome DIPA. It tastes like a 7 abv beer. The ethanol is completely masked and the mouthfeel is light; not heavy or syrupy. This isn't an overboard DIPA.
An awesome beer.

This is one of the best beers of this style that I’ve ever had and, coincidently, from this brewery, another earth shaking beer. Poured with a large, foamy, frothy, cream colored head, that very slowly settles down, and some lace. Color is a crystal clear dark amber. Aroma is hops, malt, caramel, spice, yeast. Flavor is an incredibley well balance of bitter, sweet, & tang. Body is spot on: mouth filling and perfect carbonation. Finish is like flavor and extremely drinkable

This was a real surprise when I put this beer on our tap line at my bar.
Surprising in the sense "where in the world has this beer been?" Out of Salt Lake City, Utah, really. With the low alcohol that had been the norm for Utah and then this beer comes in 9.50% ABV. WOW.
It smells great, taste great, has a great mouthfeel and by far the most unusual beer we've had up. We sell a 12 ounce pour for $6.00 and my customers love it.

Bought the Large Bottle at Whole Foods. The package was the reason I bought it on impulse at WFs. I could not resist the bottle with a cork, for a Double IPA. I was not disappointed and found it worthy of mention.
Appearance: it has a cloudy copper color, and for that is the only real disappointment for me in this beer. It's off white foam head does not set off the color of the beer. Sorry the visual was less then stellar. But the lacing was along the whole glass was great.
Smell: Citrus on the side of orange or tangerine, and alcohol come out.
Taste: Big citrusy hit up front, with a stung dry finish.
It hits your mouth, and lingers, a longing dry feel that makes you want to drink some more. This left my mouth dehydrated and I Got some water so I would not drink this great Double IPA to quickly.
It is big on alcohol as you get in some Barley Wines, but without the sweetness you can get in some high alcohol beers. But this beer has only a hint of malt sweetness.
MouthFeel:A dry and astringent bitterness.
Overall: I tasty member of the Double IPA list! I would be a repeat buyer, and would recommend it to others to try.

Even with a gentle pour, this beer produced a beautiful inch of off white head. Soft citrus and piney aroma, the beer has a very wonderful balance of hops and malt. I would say a citrusy and vanilla prominence to the taste. I enjoy double/imperial ipa's and would say this is one of the best ones I have had. Very drinkable for 9.5 abv. A thick mouthfeel but very tasty and would go well with a host of spicy foods or a bold steak. The lacing is beautiful. This seems to go in contrast with other reviewers but i really enjoy this beer. I would say give it a shot if you can find it.
