Deep slightly hazy orange amber brew with a sticky foam cap leaving sheets of lace. Pungent oranges, orange peels, marmalade and grapefruit along with a substantial caramelly malt nose. Biting bitterness right away, almost hot-spicy. Grapefruit pith. Oranges. Garlicky onion. Pine resin. The intense bitterness grudgingly yields just an inch to a creamy carmelly malt backbone which must exist in principle to warehouse all this hop intensity. Powerfully hoppy excellence.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little nervous about this one. I enjoy a good IPA, but I'm anxious for this thing. Let's do this.

Look: 5 - Poured a beautiful dark orange/amber color with two fingers of fluffy white head. Absolutely gorgeous.

Smell: 4 - Mango, pineapple, (hops!). Not as strong of a scent as expected, but a nice one.

Taste: 5 - WOW. I was expecting a Mike Tyson punch to the face with hops, but what I got instead was this terrific blend of hops, malt, fruit. Outstanding. I don't know what's not to love about that.

Feel: 5 - Surprisingly easy drinking. Way smoother than expected.

Overall: 4.75 - I am incredibly impressed with this beer. The hops linger for days, but it's nice. A definite must try for any beer-lover, not just hop heads.

You literally won't taste anything else the rest of the night so just keep on drinking Palate Wreckers... So good.

This beer comes in at 149 IBU's, not for novice craft beer drinker.

The pour gave me a 1 finger head, with a reddish orange color for the beer.

The smell is intense, mango, pineapple, almost an oniony type of smell but in a good way, apricot, and much more

The Taste is quite awesome, you get pineapple, mango. This beer is so hoppy that it basically numb your tongue. But if you're a hop head you will appreciate the numbing.

This is a great beer, and if you can get it, reach out an try it. Some good stuff

Fantastic DIPA! Fruity on the nose; nice and hoppy without actually wrecking your palate.
