12oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. 2013 vintage.

A- a clear orange/gold, with a fingers worth of soapy head, with small, but dense bubbles. Nice lacing. Head dissipates fairly quickly

S- Big hit of mandarin orange and mango.

T- A very quick flash of pine which is quickly crushed by flavors of mandarin orange, mango, and very light hints of other tropical fruits. Some light white pepper on the finish. A bit warming, but I've had others that are much more boozy than this. Not very bitter at all, just a hint on the end. My wife hates IPA's, and she didn't hate this one due to this fact.

M- Slick, creamy, and a touch dry on the end.

O- The tropical flavors the hops bring to the table are great, but there's no hop "punch". An interesting brew that I think if they jacked up the bitterness, and hops just a touch, could be terrific.

3.99/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a nice cloudy orange with a cream colored two finger head that settles nicely coating the edge of the glass.

S: There is citrus and ripe melon in the nose along with some biscuit. A little dank.

T: Tastes of pine, mango, tangerine, some caramel notes.

M: Nice mouthfeel overall, resiny, a little sweetness with a light spicy bite and some mustiness on the finish.

O: An interesting brew overall, somewhat remniscent of early batches of Devils Dancer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Purchased at World Market in Hoover Alabama for $3.00 341ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Very good. Pours with a surprising amount of head for a high alcohol DIPA. Dark orange color.

S- PERFECT DIPA! Absolutely wonderful. Coriander, orange peel, musty.

T- Excellent. Lots of hops but not too bitter. Barely can tell it's over 10% alcohol. Caramel galore

M- Excellent for an IPA. Dry and tart.

O- Excellent. Watch out for the alcohol. Excellent cold but gets hot as it warms. Keep it in the bottle and pour as needed

Food Pairing

I tried this wonderful DIPA out with... T-Bone steak and baked potato. Not my cup of tea. Way overpowered the steak straight off the BBQ. This beer would go very well with sushi though.

Enjoy
