Mostly clear copper in color, with light carbonatin and a thinnish off-white head that lingers and laces the glass. This beer is dominated by a juicy, orangey hop aroma w/ hints of pine, accompanied bysome light caramel notes struggling to make themselves noticed. Firtst thing noticed in the mouth -- wow, this is pretty damn hot in terms of the alcohol. The hops are very piney, with some sharp grapefruit character as well.
Sweetness is big also, and swells in sugary presence as the beer warms. Eventually, the alcohol cools off (though perhaps its just my taste buds getting numb) but never drops completely off the radar. Fairly heavy in the mouth, and the sparse carbonation doesnt help. Overall, this is an alright beer, though it could definitely do with a little "time-out" before drinking.

Served on tap at Spinoza's in Beavercreek, Ohio. The appearance is unremarkable, but with a solid head and fairly sticky lacing. The smell is tropical fruit--not as pronounced and appealing as, say, White Rajah, but still quite good. The taste consists of mango, orange, and lemon flavors, and the bitterness from the hops just isn't here--imagine, a DIPA without bitterness--instead is sweetness from the citrus hops. The mouthfeel is unusual, but not bad at all--this beer is on the thin side (it could pass for a session beer if not for the high ABV) and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a DIPA well worth trying.

Great beer! There is a serious complexity to this beer. While it has the hop forward properties of any other DIPA's its smooth, and without a lingering bitter finish. There is a bitterness to it, but there is a malt complexity that changes the finish to make it smooth with a hint of sweetness. This beverage got better with every sip.
