Got a fresh growler of this DIPA at the Three Stars Brewing Co. facility in Takoma, Washington, DC, 1.24.15.

Appearance: burnt orange, nearly amber color and an off white and tightly bubbled head with very good retention

Smell: Sweet candied orange, grapefruit rind, apricot/peach; alcohol is more noticeable than other beers of its breed, but it's not too in the way. It lends a clove-like spiciness.

Taste: Huge bitter grapefruit in the foretaste collides with a sweet candied orange flavor (that was hinted at in the nose) in the middle palate, which ends of dominating. Resinous throughout, until the bone dry finish. Leans very dry and piney in the finish; the bitterness of the finish is actually quite intense, and by the end of a full glass, your palate has been crushed. I'm not fully on board with the aftertaste, which I find to have a slightly strange acidic quality. That said, this is a very good tasting beer on the whole.

Mouthfeel: Feel is slightly sticky until you hit a wall of refreshing dryness in the finish. Appropriate medium carbonation and body.

Overall, this is a very solid double IPA from the folks at Three Stars. It's intensely bitter and sports an orange-centric hop flavor profile that departs from the norm.
