Fresh bomber poured into a tulip glass. Dark orange and clear beer with half a finger of loose off white head. Head dissipates quickly to the surface, leaving some small bubbles on the collar and very light lacing. Some lazy carbonation slowly rising up from the bottom of the glass.

Definitely a bit of rye on the nose, spicy and bready, light citrus hops, and some earthy bitterness in there as well.

Pretty good rye IPA. Good balance of bitter hops, orange and grapefruit citrus, light resiny pine, and earthy grassy hops as it warms up, with the spicy rye and bready malt. Not much lingering bitterness on the tongue, finishing remarkably clean for a fairly big beer.

Light to medium body with some mild carbonation that's enough to help keep the tongue fresh from the bitter hops. As you drink more of the beer, there is a bit of earthy hops and rye lingering in the back of the throat only. Nice citrusy hoppy rye DIPA from a local brewer.

Had this a couple weeks back and forget most of it but had it so many times on tap it's old hat.

Beautiful orange amber looks like a good DIPA with some color in the middle.

Smells like it tastes, big ass hops up front with some bready malts thrown in for good measure. Becomes sweeter as you drink but has that good resin coating a good DIPA should have.

Get it if you like hops. If you dont like hops, go away.

Bought @ Whole Foods, Venice. In the back. Around $8.
Color is copper, large foamy head. Candy like sweetness, like a caramel candy. Orange lollipop. Tropical fruit: mango, pineapple. Body is medium. Finishes surprisingly clean. Overall, not bad. A tad too sweet for my liking, but perhaps good to share a bottle with a couple friends.
