This beer poured a light amber color with about a half inch of head. It receded to a film of foam on the top replenished consistently but the visible carbonation. As the beer poured I slowly started to smell the citrus hops, which smelled like opening a bag of hop pellets. The taste matched the smell, with grapefruit in the forefront and some clementine or tangerine citrus in there as well. Super smooth, and drank pretty well for a DIPA, though with the high IBUs drinkability was not this beers strongest point. Very nice DIPA.

Served from a 22oz. bottle purchased at The Wine Source in Baltimore, MD (12/01/09) into my Great Divide snifter at an appropriate temperature.

A: Pours a golden yellow with an amber hue with a 1.5 finger head that dissipates leaving a little lacing.

S: A mild aroma of citrus hops, apple, and a sugary-sweet caramel malt. Not as strong as I was expecting, but nice

T: Citrus hops bring up the front of the flavor profile adding a dose of a sweet caramel malt that is almost apple juice like. Mild bitterness in the finish and very well balanced, but it lacks a fresh robust flavor (perhaps not the freshest bottle).

M: slick medium-body with a slight oiliness and moderate carbonation with no real hint of the 8% abv.

D: Decent drinkability, but 22oz. was enough for me and it became a little one dimensional.

Overall this is a pretty nice DIPA with a great price point ($4.99/bomber), but there are many others that I would prefer over this. I am interested to see if my bottle was fresh or not, but I will not necessarily seek it out. Worth a Look.

A: Light orange color with finger-width egg shell head.

S: Pine, grass/earth over top of faint tropical fruit (mango)

T: Nice hop bitterness across palate interacts with a surprising level of sweetness for a west coast IIPA. Nutty, fruity. Flavorful but not aggressive.

M: Hop bitterness tingles across tongue. Clean, hoppy finish, but feels almost a bit syrupy at the front.

Earns a solid spot just below the top tier of IIPAs. Good value.

Served on draft at Barleys in Greenville, SC.

Arrived to the bar a dark orange color. Nice white head with an unbelievable amount of lacing; like a sheer curtain on the sides of the glass.

Aroma was fully hoppy and very citrusy. Very nice caramel malt backbone to lend a bit of balance in the aroma.

Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Quite bitter when the beer first hits the tongue. A real hop smack! Bitterness lingers on the palate for a while.

A nice double IPA.

Serving type: on-tap
