This beer I believe is only available in NYC. An interesting and different take on an American style double IPA.
The look is not great, it's a super pale almost unfiltered apple juice sort of look, no real head or lacing, looks really thin and honestly I would never call it as a double ipa if I didn't know it was.
The smell is good, it has a super raw hop and apricot nose. Fresh grass, some honey, not a lot of malt but pretty good. Clean nice hop aroma. The taste is raw hops almost exclusively. No real malt which and even though I'm a hop head, this really detracts from the overall flavor of the brew to me. Has that little bit of home brew taste to what must be the malt, decent earthy slightly bitter finish. Straw.
Feel is a touch thin, very dry finish, super dry for a DIPA.
Overall not too bad but not great, certainly a unique beer in the style.

A: Looks just like orange juice minus the pulp. Head is modest. Lace is sparse and spotty. He orange juice look makes me think refreshing and delicious....
S: Aroma is a dank party of stinky tropical funk. Sweet bready malts blanketed by a hoppy forest. Light crisp pine over deep dark pungent goodness. It's so aromatics it cleans out the nostrils. It's like a whiff of fresh hop pellets.
T: Super brisk, almost peppery, pine to the head. Mouthwatering juicy fruit.
M: Each sip leaves the mouth feeling encrusted with hop resins. Carbonation is pointy initially and gradually smooths out. Very juicy and very dry.

Bottle purchased at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY. This bottle retails for 16.99 at local stores around here- how is it $10 at Acme?
Pours an opaque hazy orange. Lots of residue in this one. 1 inch head, really good lacing down the glass.
Smells incredible. Stuck my nose in the bottle first, then the glass- pungent aromas of orange, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon.
Similar flavor. Unbelievably juicy. All of the fruits mentioned above, with some nice herbal piney qualities that leave a nice, but not lingering, bitterness on the palate at the end of each sip. When I smelled and tasted this one, it honestly reminded me of Heady Topper- this is the first time that's happened since I had HT.
Medium bodied, crisp, low-to medium carbonation. Very drinkable, the 22 oz went down too easy.
Amazing find here, this was one of the best IPAs I've ever had.

Pours a murky peach colored body, much like grapefruit juice, with a decent head that doesn't last too long. Aroma isn't quite to the level I remember it being on tap, but is still a thick, pungent, fruity melange of hoppy goodness. Grapefruit, peach, lemon, apricot, and flowers with a fair amount of dough to smooth it all out. More deliciously juicy fruit in the flavor...tons of grapefruit pulp, ripe tropical fruit sweetness, and some added piney, grassy greenness. Fresh and zesty. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a suitable resinous bitterness. Just a little bit different than others in this category. Very juicy with lots of fruity sweetness, but at the same time quite soft and dry. Very nice.
