Enjoy by 3-12-15, so kind of near the end of desired time...

Pours a chill-hazed amber with 2 fingers cream colored head. Super lacing & above average head retention

S: Some breadiness & floral hops, then pineapple kicks in as this warms

T: Follows the nose, grapefruit rind as well up front, slight malty sweetness up front. Some pineapple, a little honey malt, grapefruit with a little lime & grassiness as this warms. Finishes, piney a little tropical & cakey, a little grassy

MF: Medium bodied, lively carbonation, great balance

Drinks so easy, would love to try this fresher, but I enjoyed it as it is. Would certainly buy again...

Very drinkable and affordable double IPA with a good value. Alcohol is detectable in taste and aroma. Taste is piney, citrusy, boozey, bitter, then sweet malt on the finish although a little less bitter than I would expect. Nice head thick (I gave a bit hard of a pour) which held a miniscule ring throughout with moderate lacing. My favorite things about this beer are the upfront citrus notes, the mouthfeel, and abv. This isn't the most complex DIPA by no means but it gets the job done and is an excellent beer for the price.

The hops come out more intense than the 72 IBU's it claims. A hop lovers dream!

Not my favorite DIPA but good enough I keep buying more.It tastes good, but very safe, it doesn't challenge my palate the way my favorites do.
L: Pours a fairly clear clean copper/orange color, with a very thin head that dissipates very fast leaving lacing.
S: Very faint citrus hop aroma.
T: Not a lot of taste going on. A little too malty for my taste. Initial bitterness quickly overrun by malty sweetness, but a very dry bitter finish which I like.Pine dominates the hop impression.
F: This may sound strange, there is a fairly heavy mouth coating sensation, low carbonation and noticeable alcohol burn that numbs the gums.
Although not my favorite DIPA, it is in my rotation because it is affordable, available, and boozy. It may fall out of the rotation in the summer but I want it on these cold winter nights.

Great Hoppy bear for non Hop Heads. Initial citrus burst with smooth hop flavor with a nice bitter aftertaste. Beer is very hazy; look does not do justice for the taste. Overall a great beer.

A sweet grapefruit like aroma. . Orange and ruby clear body. Head thins out a laces the glass nicely. Strong bitterness upfront. Has a light fruit and caramel malt balance. Finishes clean and refreshing for something this strong. I’ll be happy to have this one anytime.

Malty, boozy with some grapefruit hop bitterness. Not much sweetness or flavor. Not terrible, but there are a ton of better DIPAs out there.

Shocking how drinkable this Double IPA is. Job well done. Definitely going to pick up a few cases in the future.
