look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Amber, somewhat rusty body with a one inch head leaving nice lacing as the beer goes down.

S - Pine and citrus hops with a vociferous malt backbone and an unfortunate rubbing alcohol nose that much is much too apparent.

T - Malty piney hops. Alcohol again makes its presence known, unfortunately.

M - Smooth and oily and with a dry finish. Alcohol is apparent on the finish as well.

O - A nice DIPA, but the alcohol is too noticeable, detracting from the hop presence. Thanks to the wife for bringing a bottle back from San Clemente!

There is too much going on. And due to the ABV this comes in a smaller glass and never on Happy Hour...why, this is an overated beer there and one to avoid if possible.
A: Slight gold/light brown color.
S: Hoppy hits the notes with citrus notes that just jump out.
T: Too sweet and hard for an IPA to enjoy.
M: Milky and alcohol kill this one
O: Have had it several times...it is okay

From old notes.

A: Pours a copper color with a big head, about two (or more) fingers tall and white in color.

S: Smells like a pine tree all the way. Intensely piney, resinous, and oily with some moderate citrus tones to it. Very green and very intense. A bit of tropical fruits in there too.

T: Amazingly bitter and just as heavy on the pine as the nose was. Quite a bit of grapefruit and perhaps some pineapple and apricot. No real room for malt flavor on this one.

M: Medium in body with a moderate to high level of carbonation.

O: I could easily see this being "too much" for somebody but I really enjoyed it.

A - Orange golden clear with slight head & lacing.

S - Lightly juice like, but definitely hops and alcohol, maybe sage, maybe not?

T - Taste is medium/heavy of hops and citrus, not long after tste, alcohol'ish but I like that.

M - Not too carbonated, but has a good medium of drink-ability, slightly "hot" alcoholish.

D - good drink-ability, but might be little "hot" and over the top for some, but still the after taste is not much, very light aftertaste. Pretty good brew, I can tell its got a high alcohol content (9.4).

Poured from a 22oz bomber

A= It poured a very nice Golden Orange with some golden coloring. Very nice head on this beer some lacing.

S= To me the smell was Hoppie to me a little bit of citrus with a hint of pine.

T= To me the tasted was deffently one of a strong beer which is fine with me they really didn't try to hide it. Left a little after taste.

M= Was a Heavy mouthful kind of coated my mouth.

D= To me it was really drinkable didn't have any problems would try it again. It was on the strong side but still a good choice would try it again.

On tap at TDR in Exton

A- Bright copper with some orange hints beneath and a flimsy off white cap with no lacing.

S- Smell is on the piney side with some residual sugar and some alcohol, bordering on nail polish in the minimal

T- An interesting DIPA, it's a very bitter one also, the pine overshadows the glimmers of pineapple and grapefruit that is underneath. Reminds me of a extremely light version of devil dancer with the teeth enamel taking off capabilities.

M- medium in build, slightly carbed alcohol on the mouth but not extremely hot. Bitter on the tounge that does not quit.

D- I am glad I tried it on tap no less but I don't think I will be going for it again. The alcohol is a bit high for my liking.
