4.16/5 rDev +10.9%
On tap at 38 Degrees in Alhambra, CA.
Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight tropical fruits. Taste is much the same with citrus and tropical flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Dark amber colored beer with a tall off-white colored head. I can describe the color best as a burnt orange.
Smell is sweet and woody with a little eucalyptus and orange scents. Unfortunately that is about all not a very aromatic ale.
Starts out sweet and bitter with a woody orange aftertaste. Bittersweet describes the flavor. And that is all she wrote just bittersweet.
Mouthfeel is thick.
Overall, I don't care for this one much.

Glowing orange/amber body. Tight ivory white head. Lacing is full and comes in sheets. Aroma is solid. Resinous, dank....gritty. The flavor follows suit. Dank and resiny. Not a bright DIPA, but still decent in its own right. Bitterness is pretty clean. Also get some melon fruits too....like cantaloupe. Body is medium-full and carbonation is ramped down appropriately. Alcohol is hidden very nicely in the beer. For close to 11%, it's very minimal. Decent beer.

A-Deep gold color..minimal head..
S-Toffee like malt...sweet smelling...overripe peaches...kind of a body odor aroma as well.
T-Not a ton of hop flavor here. Sweet, sticky type of sweetish malt...hops lend an overripe sweet fruit flavor...thinking peaches, nectarines...
M-Medium full bodied....sticky sweet...just a light finishing bitterness.
O-I thought I liked this better in the hotel room in LA than I do now as I disect it. It's an OK sweetish DIPA.

Crystal clear orange hued body with a medium-large frothy bone hued head. Aromas are of floral and citrusy hops, light grapefruit pith, alcohol and malty sweet notes, light biscuit and caramel. Low ester. Flavors are medium balance, malty, low bitter, floral, citrusy. Well hidden alcohol. No fusel character, but immediately warming. Light windex/chemical flavor in the finish. Lingering citrus. Not overtly forward in its dry hop character. Medium carbonation, warming, medium bodied.

Consumed October 24th, 2013 from an undated can I obtained about a week prior. Poured from can into standard pint glass.
Beer is a fairly clear coppery orange. A two finger pale yellow head forms and provides nice, sticky sheeting.
Aroma is mild and all about hops: pine and ruby red grapefruit.
Flavor is sweet caramel, a little herbal note and lots of pine. Bitterness lingers a very long time. Very long. Not especially complex, but if it's bitter hoppiness you seek, this is it.
Mouthfeel is slightly thick, slightly oily and moderately carbonated.
Not essential, but if you're into bitter hop juice type strong IPAs, this ought to make it into your mouth at least once. No attempt at balance or winning the hearts and minds of anyone but the lupulin fiends.
