Pours a clear orange/yellow honey color. Lots of creamy off white head. Big aroma with lots of pine, citrus, and grapefruit. Get some astringent notes and some caramel/biscuit malty aroma as well. Taste is a big hoppy DIPA. Taste follows the nose with pine, grapefruit and caramel malt. Significant bitterness. Finishs dry and not sticky which makes it easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel which is surprising for 10%+ beer.

Overall good DIPA that's has a big piney, citrus hop flavor and very bitter. easy to drink and not syrupy or too sweet. I'll be picking this up fairly often at $11 for 4, 16 oz cans.

This is definitely a double ipa, but maybe for the wrong reasons.

Aroma - very little aroma hops, mostly there is a strong alcohol smell
Appearance - good, looks clear and clean
Taste - There is a piney hop forward taste followed by a hot alcohol blast. It almost tastes like Jim Bean was added to a regular IPA. So if you're in to getting hammered fast then this is the beer for you. If you are in to complex, hoppy, malty balanced DIPAs then this is not the beer for you. Plenty other local LA brews (Wolf Among the Weeds) that fit this bill much better.

don't get me wrong, this is an enjoyable brew but one is enough otherwise you'll be on your donkey in seconds flat.

Tastes like a sick cross between Colt 45 and that one Safeway-brand IPA (Green Something). Smells sweet and gross. Tastes strongly of alcohol.

There's no reason this should be commercially available.

I'm as qualified to call myself a surgeon as this company is a brewery.
