Poured on-tap at the brewery, the beer is a hazy, orange-caramel coloring, with a thin, frothy, low profile, white head. Nose of herbal spice, rich caramel, and vegetal hops notes. Flavors are bitter and resinous forward, with a blast of pineapple and melon, and a solid spiced undertone. Robust and smooth in mouth, with a bitter and resinous aftertaste. Dry, rich finish. Gets very big at the end.

On night I came in they were offering this DIPA as a beer for charity so decided to try it. Looks and smells like your typical hop heavy IPA as an auburn tinted brown body with two two finger head and lace patches, and a strong citric hop with touches of sweet malt aroma greet me. However, the beer is not balanced at all because it ends up being a dry, bitterly hop clunker that actually makes it hard to finish the whole pint. There are definite hops here but no real citric, earty, hoppy, dirty, fresh feel from them at all, more just a plain graininess. The malts are killed in this beer because I cannot get any discernible sweet or even breadlike tastes. I guess you can try it if still being offered just knowing that it is (so they say) for charity (will admit I didn't inquire about charity but I doubt they would lie about something like that).
