look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle into a perfect pint glass

A - clear golden orange body with a small white head on top

S - A nice hoppy citrus/tropical fruit mix, leaning more toward the citrus. Smells pretty nice actually.

T - Big citrus notes mingle with a solid pale malt body but this definitely leans toward the hops. A bit of a lingering orange rind like bitterness at the end. A nice tropical fruit flavor up front as well. Also a bit of an alcohol flavor mixed in as well but it blends real well.

M - medium bodied, slightly sticky, fair amount of carbonation

D - pretty nice west coast style DIPA. I am surprised I hadn't heard of this one before picking it up as its a very solid beer. I would have no problem drinking more of this and would pick it up again in the future.

This is one of my favorite Double IPA's. it has a smoothe head with an absolute flavorful finish. a bit on the dark side for an IPA but thats what is great about this beer. A different turn for an IPA. I thought it went great with a steak and potatoe dinner. Not to heavy and the word light is not an option for this brew.

A: Pours red with a sticky white head that disappears quickly

S: A mix of piney and citrus hops right up front, with huge hints of sticky caramel sweetness. Slight hints of tropical fruit, mostly pineapple.

T: Huge blast of piney hops up front, quickly swallowed by a generous caramel and malt sweetness. The end offers a touch of citrus hop bite, also leaving a sticky resin feeling in the mouth with lingering sweetness from the malt. Awesome.

O: This is a fantastic double IPA. I'll definitely be grabbing more of this stuff.

Pours a deep orange in color with a small head. Had a sort retention time and leaves lacing round the glass

Smells great. Sweet and nutty.

Taste very balanced for a double ipa. Hoppy bitterness, hints of nuts and a smoky after taste. Smooth going down

Overall it's a very goo dbl ipa

A-Bright caramel color with a big frothy cream colored head. The head leaves nice lacing as it dissipates.

S-Nice starburst aroma, grapefruit, citrus, a little earthy. Very impressive.

T-starburst, citrus, pine, earthy, malty, sweet and bitterness that lingers on the finish

M-Light bodied and appropriately carbonated. I would say it's not dry.

D-I'm pretty impressed with an off the shelf IIPA, that's saying a lot. The awesome hop presence, bitterness and light sweetness from the malts hides the 9% very well. I'm pleasantly surprised.

Fresh bottle in San Diego...and what a huge difference it makes.
Appears a orange toned amber with a fluffy white head that slowly fades. Scattered bits of lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of danky weed, heavy citrus, flowers, perfume, and vibrant hop resin.
Taste is of the aromas with an herbal hop blast with sugary malt. I really like this beer. The herbal and earthiness comes through more as it warms.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, warming, bitter leaning, and mostly balanced.

Perhaps one of the best Double IPA I've had in a long while. Perfect bitterness and smooth.

Had on tap at World of Beer in Va., in a snifter

A: dark reddish brown; good carbonation and lacing; 1/2 finger head
S: bready, malty, sweet; lingers nicely
T: intense, complex, bitter, astringent; grass, piney grapefruit; medium sweetness; well balanced array of malt, hops, yeast.

Very solid DIPA.
