I'm clearly an outlier compared to the community, but I thought this was a fantastic beer. Cutting to my biggest complaint, which is just stylistic, is that this was too dark and the malt character/flavor was too noticeable on the finish for a DIPA. IMHO :-) Other than that, this was a winner. Nice, resin-y notes, quite rich, good balance. I would drink this one again in a heartbeat. (386 characters)

Aside from the malt overpowering hops a bit for being a double IPA, it is overall it a pleasant beer and might serve as a good entry level beer into the double IPA style. (170 characters)

750 into imperial pint. A dark orange, copper with a quick fade light beige head. The aromas were of some tropicals, but mainly floral with pine undertones. The bottle spoke of crushed grapes and citrus. I did not get that. Shortly after my first sip my wife leaned in for a kiss and said "you taste like grape juice." Girl's got a stellar palate.

Taste varied only slightly from the aromas. Floral, pine hops up front (and plenty tasty mind you, not a critique) with some sweet maltiness across the palate. Finish had the advertised grapefruit. This was interesting as DIPAs go. It had the "balance" of big hop and malt, but the flavor left your tongue pretty quickly and did not linger as long as expected with the medium-plus mouth feel.. Still, a good DIPA but tough luck being from a part of the country where great DIPA's flow. Still worth a taste. (856 characters)

Pours a deep amber color. Not very well balanced. Very malt forward but still a decent beer. The Nelson hops were what caught my attention, so I was disappointed when I couldn't distinguish them over the malt (208 characters)

Poured into a pint glass.

3.75 A: Moderately hazed amber orange color. Three fingers of pillowy beige head. Retention is about average and lots of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Big citrusy component in this - tons of mango, orange, papaya. Rich caramel and toffee maltiness. Grapefruit and some pine.

3.5 T: Like the nose, big citrus with a strong malt backbone. Fruit trio mentioned above, caramel and toffee. Unfortunately this has some cooked vegetables in there, which their IPA also had.

3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Slightly creamy and smooth enough.

3.25 D: It tastes pretty good overall, but I have to dock it some points due to the off flavors. (692 characters)
