3.74/5 rDev +5.6%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Moderately aggressive hand. The stamp on the neck is smudged, but I can make out a -"13" at the end.
A: Classic golden yellow-orange body with a slight haze. 2 fingers of sudsy, off-white head. Good retention. Moderate lacing.
S: Juicy, fruit-forward hop with elements of grape juice, tropical fruit. Light earth. Light brown sugar, caramel. Trace grapefruit, pine.
T: Moderately aggressive bitterness followed by a subdued maltiness. Transitions slowly back into a lingering bitterness and dry finish. Light alcohol presence for the 9% ABV. Occasional floral whiffs in the nose.
M: Smooth, moderate to light carbonation with a medium body. Drinks pretty well.
O: I had high expectations after enjoying a few preemptive sniffs, but in the end, it didn't quite live up to it's own olfactory hype. That being said, it was a good beer. I enjoyed it.

S - Biscuit and caramel malt, very sweet smelling, citrus zest
T - Sweet orange candy biscuit malt, some pine, a little citrus,
M - Bitter and incredibly sticky, a little alcohol burn
O - Just ok, sure its strong, but its just an average double IPA, East Coast style.

Poured a nice amber color
Smell of citrus, hops, and pine
I enjoyed this one at FatHeads, it had a bitter bite with hints of grapefruit and pine
It left my mouth feeling dry
Overall I liked this beer, besides leaving the mouth a bit dry, I enjoyed it. It wasn't too strong, but it satisfied my needs for an IPA.

Pours a copper amber color with an off white head, leaves speckled lacing around my glass. Aroma has nearly burn grapefruit peel, big alcoholic malt layers too. Look it feels like a DIPA double fruit and bitterness, the beer is resinous and all around a let down compared to other DIPAs. The beer is medium to full bodied finishes smooth throughout my glass. Overall I'm a fan only one of the two kind bring about.
