22 oz. bottle. Great name.

Clear, clean, deep copper orange body. Think finger of dense, creamy, beige-khaki head. Great lacing. Spicy, sweet, fruity, caramel-y malt hangs out beneath some citrusy, tropical fruity, and herbal hops. Very juicy and fresh-seeming (no date on bottle to verify).

Herbal, minty bitterness right off the bat. A little spicy--almost rye-like. Fruity, somewhat caramely malt mid-palate. Tropical fruit in the finish, with rising herbal, piny bitterness. Lingering fruit and rye spice. Warming. Medium-full body with a slightly syrupy feel. Solid, aggressive DIPA.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a standard pint glass.

A - pours a very beautiful medium orange. Very clear, but not brilliant. A one finger off-white head builds quickly and falls to a quarter finger head that lingers for most of the glass. Some lacing.

S - citrus notes are aparent, but its just really fruity - almost like juicy fruit gum. Tropical. Lemon. Some booze present.

T - lots of fruity flavors with some citrus. Very smooth. Some booze, but its very mellow, adding a nice compliment to the hops. A slightly coarse/dirty hop bitterness lingers on the palate. Hop sweetness in the mid palate.

M - on the heavy end of what I would call light bodied. Surprised its this light - nice and attenuated ;)

D - fairly easy to drink. The lighter body and smoothness makes it very easy to drink for 8.8.

Overall, a super smooth IIPA that is easy to drink. Its a little odd its so smooth, which is why I think I enjoyed it so much. The booze is way more suppressed than the other two IIPAs I've reviewed in as many days (Heady and Ninja v Unicorn).

A pretty nice DIPA, though the only thing from it that really strikes me as a double ipa is the thicker sweetness from the malts. Sure, the hops are full and distinct, but not so much so when compared to what the "lesser" IPA usually presents. Certainly an easy drinker. And overall, it's a pretty nice beer. Just not really blowing me away or anything.

Pours almost neon orange with a small off-white head. Good lacing. Decent retention.

Light citrus and floral aroma with a bit of backing malt.

Citrusy up front. Not much malt to this one. Finishes with a big grapefruit and pine presence. Very nice finish.

Medium to light bodied with good carbonation.

Very solid IPA. Would prefer a touch more up front flavors, but love the bitter dry finish. Well done.
