Appearance is a hazy, dark orange.
The smell is a crisp bit of citrus & pine though not real strong.
The taste is sweet and bitter. It has a pleasant hoppiness and a malt sweetness. It doesn't taste like a IIPA hop bomb.
Mouthfeel is thick and oily.
Drinkability is very good for the ABV.

I like this beer a great deal. It doesn't seem like a typical West Coast IIPA but more balanced than expected. I do like the usual WC IIPAs but find this satisfying too.

A: a bottle colored deep golden bronze with a 2 finger layer of head floatin on top....leaving nice laced rings along the pint glass as it disappears...

S: Hops... Citrus hops and bready malt braided together ... Very appealing.

T: Like the smell, there's the tropical citrus fruit presence, yet balanced out nicely with the malt back-bone too..

M: Smooth, appeasing kind a creamy... not too heavy and not light, good viscosity... slightly bitter and dry at the back...

O: Love it

22oz bottle split with thebouch01 - served in a Stone Levitation glass

A - pours with half an inch of creamy, off-white foam. immediately leaves behind some sticky, spotty lacing as it settles. the beer is moderately hazy, burnt orange in color.

S - citrus heavy, with mangos and ripe melon alongside orange rinds. assertive sweet malt base full of rich caramel.

T - immediately a strong and forceful bitterness overwhelms the mouth. hop flavors of pineapple and grapefruit meld with notes of wet pine. solid sweet malts are present yet let the hops do most of the talking.

M - medium bodied with moderate carbonation. rich and creamy yet also a touch sticky during and after the swallow. lingering strong hoppy bitterness with a mild alcohol burn.

D - solid DIPA here. nothing too crazy or unique, yet just gets the job done. good amount of balance but still west coast through and through.

Somebody snagged this one in WA and brought it to our homebrew club meeting.

A - Pours copper with a 2 fingered white head. Dissipates fast and leaves no lacing.

S - Grapefruit, rose, and toffee. It smells a little bretty, it may be infected.

T - Honey, toffee, light flowers, and bittering hops.

M - Finishes dry with thinness and a good balance between hops and malts.

D - Good, but very dry and am unsure if I liked the hop combination they used.

Served on tap into a shaker glass

A- Poured a dark semi-hazy orange color with off-white ring of head and no lace

S- Some big citrusy hops, big caramel sweetness, some piney notes

T- Lots of juicy citrus notes, piney hops, lots of caramel sweetness. Lots of bitterness on the finish, balancing out a big sweetness from the malt and hop juiciness

M- Very dry, prickly carbonation, medium body, really smooth

O- Really solid DIPA with lots of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Nice pungent hop character.

Thanks to unclejedi for a generous gift.
Pours a hazy dark gold, looks like apple cider.
Smells of lush green hops, slightly sweet malts, almost candy-like.
Taste is not as hoppy as expected. There is a lot of bitterness in the finish which lingers quite a while. The malts add quite a bit of sweetness. Hops lend a slightly herbal note, not a lot of citrus. This is fairly well balanced, it's not all about the hops. Smooth and creamy with a lush feel.
