Pours that thick, dark, orangey ruddy color, that isn't all that great to look at, but often is very good. I like ales filtered or not, so, no big deal here, but really not a looker either. Anyway, smells floral, complex, somewhat boozy and sweet with little malt forwardness (a good thing). Taste is great. Mouthfeel explodes, and at the right temperature, the bitterness just sings. Great echo of the hops...really carries along. I think temperature of this one is more than key: mid-fifities and this DIPA flies. I really liked this fresh bottle. I'd buy a 4/6.

Outstanding beer . Beautiful amber color. Floral and a touch bitter. I found myself wanting another. It packs a punch but not anything irritating. Just really mellow. It almost has a creamy taste and is definitely hop forward. I plan to take this to our home "Up North" so I can sit on the deck and look at the lake and just feel great. Not an everyday six pack beer but who drinks those anyway??

A- Beautiful orange/amber color. Pures a little hazy with about two fingers of eggshell head. Pretty sticky full layer of lacing that doesn't go away. Very good looking beer.

S- Smells excellent. Very hop forward. Floral with tons of citrus. I'm really getting a creamy orange scent. I would rate a little higher if the aroma was stronger and didn't die out quite as quick.

T- Tastes awesome. Very balanced. Very creamy. Very hoppy with a nice bitter finish. Love it.

Mouthfeel- Also excellent. Sticky sweet, medium body, and creamy. Bubbles are small and lingering.

O- Highly drinkable and alcoholic. I'd like a little heavier mouthfeel and a little more depth, but still this beer is awesome. An excellent beer from and excellent brewery.
