look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

From the 650 ml. bottle. April 2014 batch. Sampled on May 25, 2014.

A slightly cloudy orange-copper pour under a two inch white foamy head that slowly settles back but never dissipates entirely.

Some DIPA'a can be explosive with floral and piney hops but that is not the case here. Oh, certainly I am picking up at least one of the 9 hops they use to brew this beer, but overall the toasted biscuits and yeast are just as predominant.

The body is around medium but also smooth and drinkable.

Resiny, mildly bitter flavor but also room to catch the toasted biscuit malts. Thoroughly enjoyable.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bomber into a stemmed La Fin Du Monde glass.

The color is a hazy orange with three fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is bright fruity aroma that is a little dank but brings a juicy grapefruit and a touch if passion fruit in the nose. There is a true grassy aroma there in the nose as well giving a strong summertime feel.

The taste is grassy and really brings the hops but without the bitterness at first. Juicy grapefruit again is here with some tangy lemon-like flavor that gives a bit of a zing. The grassy flavor comes back with a bitter bite at the end giving a touch of a bitterness that only holds onto you for a moment and then let's go.

The feel of this beer is smooth with a nice medium body. A really nice drinkable feel that adds to the good flavor enhances this beer.

A: hazy dark golden. Head forms quickly but fades, leaving consistent lacing.
S: Deep down, I get orange peels...but on the surface, wet dog. There is a dank, wet musty smell here. Not bad, and citrus comes behind it.
T: Very different than the smell. Malty, with a strong blend of hops coming through and solid bitterness. It says 120 IBUS, but I don't buy it. This is never harsh. The malt and alcohol blend nicely with the hops. Quite balanced.
M: rich and luscious. This is a very mouth coating IPA.
O: a terrific beer. I really appreciate a DIPA that is well made and balanced, not off the rails with bitterness or booze. Will get this again.

I believe this to be the perfect beer. It has a very similar makeup and taste to Heady, but I actually enjoy this one just a bit more. Bravo

Pours a murky amber color. This brew is extremely fresh, even though it was bottled 8 weeks ago. Aroma is strong, citrusy, piney, resiny. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a fresh taste to it. A blast of hops right from the start with a moderate bitterness.

A - Beautiful orange/peach coloring to the body, with a nice, thick head. The coloring reminds me of those Haribo Gummi peaches. After a few sips, the lacing became quite pronounced.

S - Wow. The label boasts "Hops were addd in every conceivable part of the brewing process" and it sure does smell like it. Very fruity, like mango and strawberries give the aroma a huge boost.

T - Very impressive double IPA right here... there's a sweetness here that mixes well with the hops and gives it a significant fruit flavor. Vanilla tones, too.

M - THe sugariness stays with you, but overall balance of hops is very well done.

O - Get ready for a great IPA here, and if you're on the hunt for one with a fruity edge, look no further. I really enjoyed this beer and would recommend it to any fan of double IPAs.
