8 Wire honestly has not made a beer that wasn't extremely good and this is no exception.

Gorgeous cloudy dense orange ruby body with 2 finger head and wonderful shelves of foam lacing.

Somewhat light nose even right after the cap came off the aroma wasn't worthy of this double IPA. Sadly we suffer older bottles thanks to Shelton distribution and this being distributed from New Zealand.

Bready malt, grains, and a big powerful sharp citrus hop profile. I'm a bit surprised that I don't get the passion fruit flavors I normally taste in souther hemisphere IPA from this region. I'm a bit disappointed but this is still good.

Well carbonated, creamy, dense....amazing how easy it seems to be to make an IPA have wonderful mouth feel.

Overall this is another excellent beer from what is becoming one of my favorite brewers.

On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and floral flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop and earthy bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice mixture of citrus, floral, and earthy hop qualities.

Pours into an impy nonic a dull chill hazed burnt orange with a foamy half finger white head atop.Grilled tropical fruits with all their sugars coming out in the nose,alot of good fruity sweetness with only mild bitterness,caramel toffee and mild sweet alcohol round out the nose.More tropical fruit sweetness on the palate with light herbalness as well from the hops,a hefty sweet caramel malt base is there as well making for a sweeter palate,the alcohol becomes more prevelant as it warms.A big juicy DIPA,the NZ hops bring alot of tropical flavors with them.Solid.

A: Pours a relatively clear deep burnt orange in color with light amounts of visible carbonation near the edges of the glass and some amber highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy light beige head that quickly reduces to a small patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith hops and light aromas of pine and spicy hops as well as some light hints of caramel malts.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of caramel malts with a light to moderate amount of sweetness followed by the much stronger flavors of the hops - in this case, the hops start out with citrus/grapefruit pith, pine, and spicy in descending order of strength. Moderate amounts of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy with light to moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Overall the alcohol is pretty well hidden in this brew and it is relatively easy to drink - I wish I could have gotten my hands on this when it was super fresh but it has stood up pretty well.
