Poured from a 12oz bottle (Batch 8779) and served in a pint glass. This beer poured a hazy, dark amber with a very thin head of tan bubbles. Some spotty lacing was left around the glass. The aroma included sugary caramel, toffee, peach, and orange zest. The flavor was slightly sweet, and full of tropical fruit, orange juice, peach, and also some earthy pine. The caramel is there, but it doesn't really stand out. A crisp, clean bitterness lingers on the tongue. The mouthfeel was full-bodied with a slight oiliness. Mild carbonation. Nice and hoppy, but not your usual DIPA. The combo of hop flavors is quite unique and really interesting.

Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.
A - Pours hazy amber orange with a nice one finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a small ring around the edge, leaving sticky webs of lace on the sides of the glass.
S - Smells of caramel, toffee, pine needles, earthy hops, dash of fresh fruit and plenty of mildly toasted sweet malt.
T - Starts off with toffee and pine resin quickly being joined by the earthy and fruity hops and finally the sweet caramel malt. Finish is a little sweet with some backing dryness, lingering long after the finish.
M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Slick, sweet feel with some dryness after each sip.
O - A decent DIPA. I am always interested in trying new to me Bell's beers but I have had better from them.

On tap in Dublin, OH
Never had this beer before, but I love a double IPA as much as the next hop head. Great beer, great flavor, bought a growler of it to send back east as part of a trade. Had it head to head next to Double Trouble, and it stood its ground. Not as much fruit as a DT, but more centerd on a straight up IIPA with a mouthful of bitter hops with flavor to go along with it.
