Truly one of my favorite DIPA's and it's about time I got around to reviewing it....
A-Pours a pleasant golden-orange color with a fine creamy eggshell-white colored head.
S-Amazing smell to this beer with hints of pineapple, apricot, brown sugar and grapefruit.
T-Faint notes of buttery brown sugar and honey-caramel that are quickly and absolutely crushed by a wave of pineapple, pine resin, mango, apricot and a finishing assault of dry grapefruit pith.
M-Nicely carbonated with a medium body that coats the mouth but isn't too thick.
D-When something is this delicious, it's all too easy to drink a couple but with this ABV you'd pay the price...
A great seasonal DIPA that I eagerly look forward to every year. Worth the wait!!

12oz bottle bottled on 1/16/14 poured into a tulip glass.

A: Pours a translucent golden orange body, with an off-white 2 finger head. Decent lacing and retention.

S: CItrus and floral hops, some boozy sweetness.

T: Honey and citrus hops dominate. Along with some dank hops when i burp.

M: Crisp and bitter. Alcohol is fairly well hidden for the ABV.

O: Its alright I honestly don't see the reason for all the hype. I may get it on draft if i see it, but for $20+ a six pack its a bit steep.

AS far as an over hyped IPA goes this is the tops.

Everyone wants it and no owns has it. That is retarded. This beer is available. Bell's just chooses to limit how it comes out. Good for them, bag for all of us.

This is a good IOA. Two Hearted with a good finish. Then add in that the Honey really finished the deal.

Great Beer!

IOver hyped...
