I tried this one on recommendation of my beer guy. It Pours a hazy copper brown with a one finger off white head that lasts substantially longer than most and gives way to an off white lacing. The aroma on this beer is surprising for an ipa. More malt than hops. The flavor is consistent with that assessment, being sweeter and maltier than your typical double ipa. It is still a very enjoyable offering but not packing the hoppy bitter punch that one expects from a double ipa. This is a well crafted beer but seems more Apa than ipa. I'm not sure if it is one that I would return to often...If at all.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus fruit and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice citrus hop presence that comes through better in the aroma.

You would think that Raul would only be into California beach bunnies, but let me tell you: no way, no how! The main man loves all the girlies from all the regions of the world. And that's where Mr. Delicious comes in; this isn't a SoCal, West Coast IPA that Raul is used to. Uh huh. No way! This thang is dark and almost copper in color. It's a bit syrupy, a bit creamy, and a bit good!

Yeah buddy! Not the best, but Raul likes it quite well.

Poured this undated 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams glass. (reviewed from notes). The body was a hazy orange/amber. The dense yellowy head settled to a thick cap leaving rings of lace in the glass. Impressive.

The smell was of hard candy. Bready.

The taste was citrus and pine. Some alcohol was evident. Orange rind. Pretty malty sweet, but it does dry out in the finish.

The mouthfeel was somewhat slick. Oily. Medium to full bodied. Modest carbonation. A pleasant surprise.
