[Best served in a Snifter]

The pour was a hazy golden yellow with an average sized white creamy head that reduced down to some puddled residue, which clung onto the edges of the glass and lasted throughout creating some excellent streaky lacing.

The aroma was strong of a floral hop, a grain malt and a soapy yeast with notes of grapefruit, orange and a bit of honey.

The taste was bitter and mildly sweet with a nice fruity citrus note (orange) and a hint of honey in the beginning, and then became much bitterer and had a nice hoppy grapefruit finish. The flavor lasted a good longtime letting the taste of bitter hops and a light sweet citrus flavor combine on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just a shade beyond light in body with a bold dry texture and a lively carbonation.

Overall a very flavorful DIPA with a nice sweet fruity twist and the perfect balance of hops, which totally concealed the high alcohol content.

12oz bottled received in trade with SalukiAlum--big thanks, have been wanting to try this brew for awhile.
Best by date of 3/2/2012.

Pours a pale honey color into pint glass. Nice one finger white head, small, tight bubbles, plenty of lacing.

Citrus, lemon, honey, flowery aroma. Not over powering.

Smooth hop bitterness, alcohol well hidden. Minimal malt.

This is a nice brew, alcohol pushes it into the DIPA category, but the flavor is mainly IPA.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Ithaca glass. It poured a hazy amber color with a thick, frothy white head to it. Nice lacing as I drank it as well. Great looking beer

The aroma has a very juicy hoppiness to it. I get a lot of grapefruit to it with some sweeter notes of pineapple and mango. A little bit of the pale, bready malts peek through. Very appealing hoppiness to it.

The taste also shows a very juicy hoppiness to it. I get more of the bitter grapefruit coming through with some citrus rind like qualities to it in the finish. Like in the aroma, I get some sweeter tropical fruit like notes to it as well.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being moderate. Overall it was a really good hoppy beer. I loved the juiciness and the resiny bitterness it brought. Very flavorful and drinkable beer of the style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from brown 12 oz bottle to pint glass. Reviewed after numerous bottles.

A - The beer pours a translucent gold color with a nice 2 finger white head with good retention and excellent lacing.

S - Hops! Lots of fruity hops! Behind the hops is a good toasted malt profile but the nose is dominated by the tropical fruit, slightly earthy hop character. Awesome. No alcohol detected.

T - The beer starts with a nice bitterness, not overwhelming but pleasant and strong. The hop character dominates throughout: tropical fruit, citrus, pine, and earthy tones. The middle of the beer brings a balance with toasted barley and fills the palette. Chewy. The beer finishes crisp and full. Very good.

M - Well carbonated, creamy, crisp.

D - Absolutely. Hides the alcohol well. Dangerously easy to drink.

Overall, I had high expectations for this beer and was not let down, it's great. In a side by side to Pliny the Elder this beer has more fruit character and more crisp bitterness. Pliny is smoother. I would like to do a side by side with Seven Seas and Maharaja as I think they would be more similar.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Pours a crisp golden with a full white head, bubbles continually rising to surface and decent lacing. Aroma is fruity (good dose of peacbes, some citrus and its rind), oily, and a touch toasty. Flavor followed suit. A creamy, medium bodied active mouthfeel. Overall, fantastic beer. My favorite IIPA.

*From notes

-- Thanks, Siege --

A: Setting sun golden. Unfiltered. A good pour yields a one finger white head and decent lacing.

S: Intense tree sap and pine resin. A bit unfresh, maybe? Getting in there a bit deeper, I get a touch of mango.

T: Extremely piney. Too much, in fact. It's prickly, unjuicy and not all that pleasant of a beverage. It's also not the freshest DIPA I've had (from what I can tell, anyway).

M: Meh. It's alright, and utterly unspectacular.

O: This reminded me a lot of Short's Huma-Lupa-Licious: overtly pine forward, with little complexity or drinkability. Not something I'd recommend, and one I'll be avoiding in the future.
