Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to SoCalBeerIdiot for sharing this one.

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thick rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but has a much better hop presence in the aroma.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ. Here's to seven years of Beachwood! On to the beer:

Orange yellow colored and topped with a frothy top. The aroma can be described as hop juice with a dose of alcohol. That hop juice described in the aroma breaks into specifics on the palate, primarily into the classic trio of orange/tangerine/citrus. This is one thick, juicy Double IPA, and despite its full body, much of the alcohol is hidden and it's a drinkable ale. Very nice!

12/18/13, drank in a glass from a bottle only 24 hours after release.

First review! Long time lurker though.

A: clear, pale color. Very nice creamy looking white head.

S: the aroma hits you right when you open the bottle. After pouring, you can smell it from a distance. Very well hopped beer, can tell it was dry hopped with care. Pineapple, grapefruit, lots of tropical fruit, citrus, a little pine, even some subtle mint notes. Also has that marijuana skunky smell which i actually like. Amazing nose on this one. Burst of hop resins.

T: everything that is in the nose can be tasted but, but with the addition of the alcohol and the warming that comes with it. IMO this one smells better than it tastes, but only because it smells so damn good. You get a prolonged bitterness, but nothing harsh or astringent.

M: you get the oily, hop resins that I personally look for in the mouthfeel of an IPA. It sticks to and coats your palate which prolongs the flavor. Good stuff.

O: wooow, what a DIPA.
