look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

pours a dark orange syrup sunset colour ... great foam ... lacing is ample and creamy ... has a very clean hop bite ... with a nice after hop lacquer ... very upfront ...''book of the dead'' ... you can taste and feel the 101 IBU's ... system check : lots of sticky pine needles left in the mouth, big tasty shoulder shuddering (msCoop) ...

Received this as an extra from nugganooch; thanks Dane! Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into my Bell's tulip.

a - Pours a somewhat transparent orange-golden color with two fingers of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Head leaves a ton of lacing on the glass and lasts for several minutes. Looks pretty nice.

s - Smells of citrus hops, tropical fruits, fruity malts, light pine hops, and some light floral hops. Very hoppy and fruity, pretty nice.

t - Tastes of oranges, citrus hops, lemons, fruity malts, tropical fruitys, bready malts, some light caramel malts, and light alcohol. Not as hoppy as the nose and more malts, a slight step down for me.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Light bitter bite up front.

o - Overall a very good DIPA. Nose is great and chock full of fresh hops and fruits. Taste is a little bitter and more malts come out, but it's a very good beer. Something I'd certainbly have again.
