Appearance - Pours a hazy golden orange with an off-white, near 3 finger head. Fair retention, resulting in a chunky, broken layer of bubbles across the surface. Leaves a thick, sticky lacing all-around the glass.

Smell - Equal parts citrus/orange aroma and caramel and bready malt. Very much in line with a lot of West Coast DIPA's.

Taste - Follows the nose. Juicy orange upfront with underlying grapefruit pith bitterness. Bread and caramel malt hit mid-taste and balance things out. Finishes with a nice balance, then a touch of orange peel in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full in body with moderate carbonation. Silky smooth on the finish. Very nice body.

Overall - A very good Imperial IPA, though it doesn't do much to distinguish itself from the rest of the pack. It's a beer I'd buy if it were on California shelves, but not necessarily one I'd trade for again, as comparable DIPAs are readily available.

The beer comes in a hazy orange yellow color with a fluffy 2 finger head.

The aroma has orange, mango, pine, apricot, grass.

The flavor is huge on this malty mouthfeel, which is immediately noticeable, then there’s some grapefruit, apricot, tropical fruits, and pineapple. The hop fruit profile is actually a bit hard to put a finger one. A huge strong pine bitterness just smacks you though after a few seconds. It really is strong, but also enjoyable.

The mouthfeel is so big that it is almost stout like. It’s a very big feel, but also drinkable because of the bitterness that cleans up the beer.

This is a really strong and fantastic DIPA.
