1.3/5 rDev -64.8%
Deep amber color with about 1 finger of white head. Pretty good lacing. Sweet toffee and malt nose. Lots of caramel, touch of earthy hop.
Tons of malt, sweet toffee and dark fruits up front with just a touch of earthy bitterness. Lingering sweetness. Feels like a Double IPA without any thought and not enough hops. Full mouthfeel, semi-syrup like on the finish. Balance isn't there and it tastes tastes like homebrew. Bleh, glad I didnt bring this into my shop.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy copper orange with a medium creamy off-white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is subdued - some resiny hops and alcohol.
The flavor is a little sweet malt with a ton of sharp bitter alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, I remember this being much better on tap. All I get is bland bitter alcohol.

Ehhhh this is a below average DIPA. Its on the hot side. Smooth is an accolade I'd shove under the rug. Alcohol is up front and personal. The hop profile is watered and the malts are stale.
For the price this is out of its league.
Yikes. I'm 0 for 2 from this brewery.

Hazy orange with a scant single finger of slightly off-white head. A few rings of lace.
Weak grapefruit and slight cattiness. Some esters and slight alcohol, no real malt, though, and something reminds me of blue cheese.
Bitter, boozy, blah malts, and not much in the way of hops. Some grapefruit, but not much else.
Could use some more carbonation, a little syrupy.
There are any number of better, readily available DIPAs on the market.

Bottle from JohnCoctsin. Served in a tulip.
Pours a clear light amber color with a single-finger white head that leaves some nice spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries plenty of bready malt and some light caramel. Hops? Nope. The flavor is bread and some very light caramel and sweetness. Bread crust is the most apt description. Hops? Nope. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation. Bitterness? Nope. Three strikes.

Bought this with moderate expectations. Made this account just to write this review. The beer might be a lot better if it was packaged more properly. Like a lot of people, I nearly refuse to drink a craft beer straight from the can. Likewise, I felt the need to pour this brew into my Russian River nonic pint glass. I lost about a quarter of the beer by simply trying to pour the damn thing. I created a second air hole in the can and all and I could not get a proper pour without most the beer trailing down the can and making a damn mess everywhere. I finally got enough poured out so I could properly pour the rest of the damn beer and because it wouldn't pour properly, the beer foamed up obnoxiously. In the end, I got a hoppy, and clean flavor with a flat carbonation. Probably never going to revisit. Most terrible can design I have ever seen, hands down. It affects my experience with the beer, so yes, I feel like it ruined the quality of my beer. Would have had a decent score if I could have managed a good crisp sip or two, but even the taste isn't anything to die for and doesn't stand out amongst the other DIPAs available. Couldn't even get that from the first three sips from the can. If you don't have a problem drinking a beast of a brew from an insanely big can, then give it a shot. If you wish to pour this beer, find something better. The beer wasn't even worth the price in the first place.

A-Hazy orange with white lacing around the edges
S-Slight hops and something I cant quite put my finger on.
T-tastes kind of metalic. No idea where it is coming from. Now I know what I was smelling
D-not very good, metalic taste and all
M-lightly carbonated, light bodied
Dont know if this is a bad bottle or what is going on with it.

Poured from a bottle into a Chimay goblet
A- pours dark orange with a one finger slightly offwhite head. Head doesn't stick around for too long, but laces pretty nicely
S- strong citrus aroma. Smells damn lovely, and is pretty pungent...not really searching around for the scent in this one
T- and unfortunately, this is where the goodness of the beer ends. I am tasting next to no hops at all. Just pure nothingness. Wait, there's a very slight bitter finish. That's it. Tastes like water
M- it's THICK, which makes no sense given the lack of hoppiness to it. Thick water = very offputting
O- I thought this was going to be a star after the pour and first whiff of it. Then it really hit the fan. No dating on the bottle, so I have no idea how old this is. A shame, really

Three fingers of big bubbly white head arise above a dull copper, slightly hazy, body. Very good dense lacing.
Assertive citrus aroma features plenty of orange, backed by pine.
Sweet beginning, sweeter than expected, and the sweetness lasts throughout. Hops rise and crest, and battle to take a fruity hold for awhile. Not for long though. No alcohol burn, but a definite sense that its there.
Thick, heavy almost syrupy mouthfeel.
Sweet and sluggish dampens drinkability.
Not really what I'm looking for in a IIPA, and a bit high at $8.35/bomber.

This is an okay beer, but, relative to other DIPAs, it's just mediocre. It pours a color that's right about average for the style, a transparent amber-orange. The head is sudsy with lots of fine, foamy bubbles. The aroma is fairly weak, mostly pine resin hops with some grapefruit rind and a touch of tropical fruit. There's very little bright, fresh hoppiness, though this bottle should be fresh, judging by when it arrived in local stores. Some caramel malt. The flavor has some good bitterness, but, otherwise, it's fairly disappointing. It's a touch too malt sweet at first and altogether too little complexity. The aftertaste is blandly bitter with a note of stale grain. Mouthfeel has nice hop oiliness but is fairly thin and maybe a bit overcarbonated. I rather liked Mission's IPA, but this one just can't compete in the already overcrowded style.
