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.

Rich copper color with a silky tan head. The nose a nice hop profile balanced by some sweet malts. The taste is also quite nice. Citrusy and floral hops up front followed by some bready malt varieties. Mouthfeel is full and perfectly carbonated. A very nice Double IPA.

The brew pours a light bright orange hue which colours remind me of a nice dusk sunset with decent carbonation that leaves behind a steady one finger head that stays and leaves heaps of clingy lacing here and there,the smell is abit different to most ADII's that i have had before and strangely enough smells very similar to weed with some subtle aromas of pineapple,wet piney hops,toffee and passionfruit aswell,it has a medium bodied well carbonated mouthfeel and on first sip you can tell this brew is very fresh and the first taste that hits me is tropical fruits but mainly mango and pineapple toned down a little by some boiled candy and barley sugar which in turn is nicely hit with a good wack of piney,herbal,resiny hops which beautifully counteracts any sweetness first encountered to leave you with a semi dry finish on the palette and overall its quite nice without being overley memorable cheers.
