A 12 ounce bottle, poured into a DFH Signature Glass.

A: The beer pours a light gold, with a one finger fizzy head that doesn't hang around too long. Nice lacing, though.

S: Sweet and citrusy hops. Nice, but a little boring to be honest.

T: Bitter hops upfront, wth a sweet maltiness present as well. Citrus notes come at you as well, but can't quite overtake the bitterness.

M: Lightly carbonated, with alcohol notes present in the finish.

O: An enjoyable, though average, DIPA, but not one I'm going to seek out again. If this was the only IPA available in a pinch though, I'd definitly go for it.

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours a rich, bubbly gold with a thick, off-white single finger head. Retention and lacing is top notch!

S - Smell is of subtle, leafy hops, orange peel, lemon, and mango. Maybe the hops are just subtle to me, being used to west-coast style IPA's, lol.

T - Taste is of moderately bitter hops up front, and is quickly overpowered by a blast of citrus goodness. Lemon and orange during the initial bitterness, and ends with a sweet, mango-like finish. Bready malt texture. Slightly on the boozy side, but the citrus dominates.

M - Medium bodied, and moderately carbonated. Drinkability is good overall.

O - Overall, it's a nice DIPA that's not quite as aggressive as the stuff that's more local to me. Great choice for those who like their IPA's with more emphasis on citrus flavor

poured from a 12 oz bottle into pint glass

A - poured a nice clear yellowy-amber colour, two finger head from my pour
S - citrusy deliciousness
T - hop explosion, citrus, and a kinda bitter aftertaste
M - smooth and creamy and full
O - overall this is in my top ten all time, and I love this beer
a really biased review, i love this beer, i love this brewing company, I named my cat after the damn beer, it is amazing, and if you like hops you will love a fresh one
