Hazy golden yellow with just the slightest bit of orange hue, and a small white head that sticks around. Leaves a good lacing.
Nice citrusy and floral hop aroma, with just a tad of pine and a small bready malt base if I try hard. Very hop forward, which is something I love in IPA's, especially doubles.
Complex hop combo that is much more about the flavor and aroma than bitterness. Plenty of the citrusy, fruity, floral and piney hops all meshing together perfectly in a super hop forward but not a crazy smack in the face way. Getting the bready, cracker malts which blends really nicely too.
Moderate body and carbonation with a very creamy smooth overall feel. Not heavy despite the size. Very nice.
Very nice DIPA - way more mellow than I expected from the aroma, but totally works. You'd never guess this was such a huge beer, considering how smooth and easy drinking it is, but you know it's a DIPA because of the complex hop explosion. Highly recommended.

Have had a few times since landing in Houston. Most recently from a growler purchased from Premium Draught.
A: Pours a vibrant copper/orange color with a touch of haze. A two finger creamy white head rises, with good retention initially. That eventually recedes to a ring with plenty of lace.
S: Citrus, orange rind, piny hops. Some malty sweetness for balance. That is about it, I am really not getting much.
T: Well balanced with citrus, orange, and piny hops with the biscuit and sweet malts. A slightly bitter finish, but overall not much lingers. The balance is nice, but fairly simple. Not a bad thing at all.
M/D: A medium body with moderate carbonation. Actually seems a bit thin and watery for me. Well balanced, and not much alcohol presents, so this is pretty easy to put back.
Not bad at all. I will enjoy the rest of the growler, and really like the balance here. Though I feel there are better version of the style sitting on the shelves. Double Jack and Endeavor to name two.

The beer comes in an extremely dark red orange.
The aroma has a bright floral, citrus, and piney aroma that reminds me of Centennial. A huge sugary candy sweetness. A dried sugary pineapple and mango, citrus peel.
The flavor follows with tons of similarity to Hopslam. A dried pineapple note, herbal, and floral hop note with a big candy sweetness, almost like the honey in Hopslam. There’s a light floral and green forest pine that Centennial offers, as the hop notes have similarities to Bell’s Two Hearted. The finish is quite bitter of again floral with a good amount of drying. Tinges of alcohol hint at the finish.
The beer is absolutely delicious and better than Hopslam because of the light malt and more vibrant hops. This has a best by date of 4/1/14, which makes the beer almost 100 days old. I imagine that this beer is better when fresh, but that is pure conjecture.
