A - Pours a deep burnt orange with a one-finger white head. Heavy sticky lacing.

S - Heavy citrus - pineapple & orange and some malty sweetness.

T - Taste follows the aroma. A nice burst of citrus and sweet malt upfront. The finish has a nice amount of resinous hops.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Sticky & dry mouthfeel.

O - This is an above average DIPA. Deinetly worth trying.

The beer is dark orange and hazy with a thick, soapy white head. The aroma brings sweet citrus, candied fruits. The flavor confirms that this is a sweet beer. sweet breads and sugary pineapple and mango. Some alcohol warmth in the finish. Bitter hops gain strength as I progress through the beer. There is a nice balance here that shouldn't be overlooked. While a bit sweet and malty for my personal tastes, this is a decent beer. Elegant bready, malty body supports sweet resinous hops. Worth a try.

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - Copper, orange, slight amber, 1 finger white head.

Smell - Orange and pineapple, malt, not a lot of alcohol.

Taste - Pineapple, orange, tangerine, some oily resin at first, moves on to character from the malt backing, roasty, biscuity, and then finally I get some more resin, pine, bitter flavors and then it settles.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, medium carbonation, refreshing

Overall - Good beer. Definitely not dissipointed and having said that this is also not one that will be breaking into the favorite category. Enjoyable, might buy again next year.

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.
