Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice hazy orange hue with a good one finger head that fades to leave light lacing and a nice thin blanket. Quite pleasant.

S - Aromas of nice tropical fruit, pineapples and the like with great orange/tangerine peel as well. Some faint malt and some very, very faint spicy alcohol. Real good.

T - Taste is pretty good. Not nearly as much tropical notes as in the nose, which is unfortunate, nice light pine and nice tangerine notes. Lots of resin here, like gnawing on an orange peel. Solid bitter finish, again the alcohol is hidden nicely.

M - Mouthfeel is really solid. Once more, the alcohol is hidden well and its nice and clean.

O - This came from Alabama? Could have fooled me. Very well done. Quite drinkable and enjoyable.

Appearance is a golden orange color with a two finger white foamy head.
Aroma is super tropical, citrus, apricot, peach, pineapple.
Flavor is pine, citrus and tropical flavors. Bitter on the tip of the tongue.
Mouthfeel is semi dry with mild carbonation and slight lingering bitterness.
My favorite local ipa or DIPA.

Thanks to Big Mike

Enjoyed fresh out of a can in a pint glass. Orange with a little haziness and creamy full head.

Up front there is a sweetness aroma in the glass that lingers all the way down.

Taste is BIG. Big body with really strong tropical fruit and some citrus-alittle pine. No alcohol burn but you know it is there. A bit over malted. Smooth.

Lingers. Slightly on the syrupy side.

Really big big DIPA. My first and enjoyed. A little dangerous given how easy to drink. Reminded me of Oracle..

Orangy amber in color with lots or whitish creamy head. Great lacing and persistent head. Aroma is caramel and some hoP bitterness. Taste is about the same with some orangey citrus. Medium body, high carbonation. Good brew. I'd drink this again, but not go out if my way for it.
