Got this in the Secret Santa 2010 BIF. 220z bottle...

A: A light golden honey color with a small white head that fades at a decent pace. Good.

S: Some nice sugary citrus grapefruit with some earthy bitterness in the middle. Some orange citrus on the backend. Good.

T: Some bitter orange peel and coriander with some grapefruit quickly followed in the middle. Some citrus sugary malt on the backend. Good.

M: A full bodied IPA with a great carbonation. A nice clean finish. Very good.

D: Goes down very easy.

All in all, this is a solid brew. Glad I got to try it. It is a very grapefruity IPA. A very overwhelming grapefruit flavor. If that's your thing, then definitely hunt this down, otherwise, try if you have access.

Beautiful hazy, golden-orange with a big, fluffy, soapy, sticky bright white head that leaves behind tons of lacing and great retention. Gorgeous DIPA. The nose explodes with massive hop aromas. Citrus such as fresh grapefruit, orange, and apricot. This is a serious fresh hop, pine, and citrus bomb. Great body. Seriously. So creamy and smooth. Feels fantastic and the flavors are absurd. This has so much complexity for being such a hop bomb. The IBUs are off the charts but the hop character is so enjoyable. There some booze, some really dry qualities, and a bit of cloying sweetness, but outside of that it's a flawless beer. Wow.

22oz bottle courtesy of goodstrongbeer, who hooked me up with just the thing. served in a standard pint glass.

A - pours with about half an inch of frothy tight off-white colored foam. the beer is bright gold in color with some hop haze. light spotty lacing left behind.

S - very strong. fresh tropical pineapple, mango, candied oranges. joined near the end by some bittering piney hops. light layer of sweet caramel underneath, but this is all about fruity hops. cant express enough how good this smells.

T - quick flash of the fruity tropical hops before turning into a massive bittering hop bomb, focusing on fresh wet pine needles and grassy hops. mellows out with more melon and some honey malts, with a light burning alcohol. yummy.

M - thick syrupy body (almost to a fault) but nice tight active carbonation cuts through and deploys the wonderful flavors to all corners of the mouth. finishes with strong lingering piney hops and lightly sweet tropical fruits.

D - incredible beer here. excellent aroma with an attention grabbing transition from fruity hops to insanely bitter pine-monster. not much I would improve here.

Poured into my FFF pint glass of course.

Pours almost completely transparent and golden amber in color. There is an inch of white head. Spotty lace.

The nose is fresh, grassy hops, lemon zest, some sweet malt, orange peel, and a touch of heat.

The flavors are assertively hoppy and bitter with an abundance of grassy, earthy hops. There is some citrus bite that adds to the bitterness. Some sweet, biscuit-like malt.

Mouthfeel is juicy and finishes dry.

Overall, good DIPA that is one I drink regularly. Tasty as hell when fresh.
