Had this both straight from the brewery and then took a growler home to have a week later.
A - Poured a great orange/copper color with nice fluffy white head and tight bubbles. Some nice lacing as well.
S - Great fruity tropical notes. Slight malt/bready aroma as well. No hint of any alcohol/booziness.
T - Following the smell, a nice pop of tropical flavors. A little bit of the malt backbone, but the hops just take over. Juicy is the first thing that comes to mind
M - Very nice. Dry feeling afterwards as expected. Nice amount of carbonation, even after a week in the growler. No real warming from the alcohol either.
O - For a local DIPA, this one is great. It's flavorfull, it's aromatic, and it's easy for me to get. I had to go back last weekend to refill the growler. If you are in the DC area, do not pass this one up.

On tap. Pours an orange-hued copper, with a thin head of bright-white foam. This retains well, leaving back some frothy lacing that sticks to the sides of the glass. The aroma smells floral and piney, with a touch of medicinal character. Grapefruit is standing out, along with some sweeter notes of fruit and malt. The alcohol gives this a certain amount of heaviness in the nose. The taste has a zesty bitterness with resins mixed in. Softer notes of herbs, tropical fruit, bread and a touch of sweeter caramel malts help balance this. This ends dry, bitter and resinous on the finish. The feel is medium with a sharp creaminess that spreads out. The higher alcohol gives this a boozy edge. This was certainly drinkable “enough” for a bigger DIPA but the pronounced alcohol presence does hold this down with unnecessary booze and sweetness that I’m afraid wrecks the party a bit.

Had it at the brewery. It had a orange copper color with 2 finger head.
Smell: Grapefruit and Citrus all the way. Big hop bomb
Taste: More grapefruit and more hops. Just enough malt but the hops steal the show.
Superb beer and one of the best IPA's that I have had. It is almost like bear republic racer 5 but with more hop character since it is a DIPA.

Had this one on tap at the brewery. Served in a tulip glass this beer has a nice amber to orange color. Head was medium and stayed for a little bit.
Smell was of citrus fruit as well as a little malt. Some minor grassy notes as well.
Taste is pretty citrus heavy from beginning to end. Some pine near the end. Grapefruit is what I would say dominates with small malt background
Mouth feel is pretty standard. Not too carbonated and not too heavy on the tongue.
Overall either the best port city beer I have tried or very near the top. Very good overall.

white creamy head and a hazy bright orange colored beer. smells srrongly of oranges and pine resin. taste the same as the smell. a slight malt presence that makes itself known. feel is heavy and a little thick and syrupy. a pretty good beer worth getting
