Love the simple, no frills packaging on this brew, so I decided to pick it up. DIPA's are typically not my favorite, but I'll try anything. On a side note, I went out to Paso Robles one time and had the time of my life, so I always have a spot for things from Paso. That being said, I may have grabbed this simply because the brewery was there. Whatever. Side poured with standard vigor from the bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - Two finger pure white head that hang around for a minute or two and leaves decent lacing. Pours a deep orange, maybe gold color and is almost transparent.

Aroma - You know from the jump this is going to be a big beer. Citrus and piney hops collide with tangerine and grapefruit, producing a very complex and powerful nose. Some mlaty can be sniffed in the background, but not much.

Taste - Was there a dump truck of hops somewhere in that beer? Because that's what it tasted like. Huge hoppy citrus, pine, grapefruit, tangerine, and all the other flavors that make hopheads excited are present in the taste. Hops dominate the front and middle of the drink, with a faint malt in the background. Not too bitter though, like some DIPA's.

Mouthfeel - Good carbonation level, finishes clean and dry. The big ABV is well masked.

Overall - Outstanding beer, good example of any style, but especially of the DIPA. This is the kind of beer a brewery can really hang their hat on and be proud of. Excellent work from the FW crew. Highly recommended

this one is definitely one of my favorite doubles on the market for a few reasons and here they are. yes the Hop complexion is pronounced but its even release of the malt is only noticed when enough of this great liquid is assimilated by the pallet at least for me anyway. a blast of floral and fruity notes hit the noise first before having the first sip and then the complexities abound when into the first few real mouth fulls. on draft its mouthfeel is absolute perfection not too sharp not too thin, a good melding of ibu's and sweeter characters are prevalent. definitely a stand out beer for a stand out brewery here no matter how's its served this one is gold in a glass for me!

Poured from 22oz bottle into tulip. Pours a clear golden color with thick head. Strong strong pineapple aromas...most pineapple I ever smelled in a brew. Taste is very hoppy, citrus, some sweet malts, but hops dominate. Its a bit over bitter for me, but id have over and over again. Can wait to start seeing the 12oz 4-packs!
