12 oz bottle with no discernable date poured into a goblet.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a nice white sticky looking head.

Smell is citrus and sweet pine.

Taste is very good orangey, biscuity, and lightly bitter. The hops have more of a citrus affect than bittering. Very interesting.

Mouthfeel is good, but a very well crafted beer that is very drinkable.

Drank before a Spartan football game. Thanks to my friend D.K. for introducing me to this fine IPA. I probably would have not purchase this one on my own based on the label but now I find myself looking for it.

Pours hazy yellow-golden with a small white head. The head fades slowly. The nose has big aromas of lemon and citrus, along with a pale malts, honey and a touch of herbs. Slightly bitter. The finish is long and hoppy, with citrus, a hint of pine and a touch of herbs. Nice medium body, very drinkable.

Amber colored, just remotely hazy. Head is a few shades off of white and it's fairly thick and resilient.

Aroma is big on the grapefruit. Some malt sweetness is behind this, but nowhere near balanced IMO. I do tend to like some balance in my DIPAs huh? The taste is a bit more evened out, hops hitting first and doing so hard with a big citrus bang. Malts more subdued but present in a sweet bready form.

Bigger bodied than their regular IPA, and for sure more hoppy. Just not the malt/hop balance-bomb that I like. A nice assaulting beer that I will enjoy however.
