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.
