I cannot say enough good things about this DIPA.
It is beautiful in coloring. A burnt orange almost, but still very bright. The head starts off thick and shortly gives way to a tiny ivory ring with nice lacing. Starts off tasting mildly sweet, an obvious strong hop presence and an after notes of spice and citrus. Extremely drinkable and enjoyable.

A - Nice big frothy near white head, tons of cling lace. Murky apricot body.

S - Big citrus nose, malt present as a back up. I think I detect a little pine in there too.

T - Nice big caramel center wrapped well in citrusy hops.

M - Medium body, nice balance, well carbed.

D - I like this one. Not a whale, but a solid tasty IPA.

Pours a reddish amber, into a snifter. The head is very small, barely half a finger, retention is nil. Leaves behind a trail of wispy lacing as you drink though.

Best part of the beer, blasts of dank pine and lemony herbs, strong citrus backing with slight tropical notes of mango, pear and a bit of green onion. Bready caramel base with a bit of grain husk.

Malts lay down a solid foundation of rye bread, whole grains and a hint of cereal. Pine, orange citrus and bright herbal hops. Unlike any other hop profile I've had, pine and darker citrus notes resonate with tobacco, wild flowers, lemon grass and sweet onion. Both floral and earthy. Finish is lightly bittering with some alcohol punch and a raw pine and light grain aftertaste, rather clean.

Alcohol is well hidden and the bitterness is kept to a low knell. The body is perfect, as is the carbonation.

Only good things to say here, a true sensory experience. The silk screened bottle art is amazing just like all the Mother Earth brews, aroma is great and the flavor is unique in that it manages to have both floral and earth tones in the hop flavor.

Clear dark orange, nearly amber, with a thin off-white head that eventually leaves spots of lace down the glass.

Very hop-forward aroma, with the aroma exploding with grapefruit and pine aromas combining together nicely.There's a bit of sweetness but it doesn't come off as a major component of the beer's nose.

The flavor is moderately bitter, with big notes of grapefruit and orange, along with some sticky pine. The malt profile is a touch sweet, with a hint of caramel.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, though crisp and incredibly drinkable.

Better than Primordial--this stuff is awesome!
