an enjoyable ipa that has the unique feature of smelling and tasting extremely fruity up front, and finishing with a palate destroying amount of bitterness. usually its one or the other, but this is somehow both, and it really works. almost bright orange in color with a lasting thick white head like a nitro pour, and a high degree of clarity. it smells like oranges and mangoes and other tropical fruit. it also has a pretty sturdy grain base, some sweetness, and a lot of body from what i can tell. the flavor starts off with all the fruit, its juicy and fresh and definitely west coast in style with all the resins of the hops sticking up the flavors. the finish is brutally bitter, bust be well over 100 ibus, and its dry and long lasting, almost like my tongue is being pinched. the fruity flavors dry right up, and so does the grain sweetness. long long long bitter finish, punctuated by aggressive carbonation and a lot of body. a tasty glass of beer, but i was glad to be sharing the bomber. it gets even more intense with temperature. great use of hops here, and a very well disguised alcohol strength. solid double ipa.

Mmmm...great IPA. Very floral, citrusy, orange pineapple grapefruit flavors. This is a very citrusy beer. I wouldn't consider this a full double IPA as much as i would consider it a well balanced IPA. The 8.8 ABV is full front, not hidden at all. Overall, this beer is excellent.
