look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- A deep ruby red with a one finger off-white head.

S- Piney hops, resin, some tropical fruit.

T- Piney, resin, tropical fruit, grapefruit rind, just a great hop explosion with just enough of a malt backbone.

M- Smooth, crisp, medium body.

O- A great DIPA and I with definitely pick this up again. Alcohol is well hidden and this is very easy to drink.

A: Burnt golden orange. Nearly copper. Not a lot of head on the pour maybe half a finger. Great lacing as you drink.

S: Hops are huge up front then fade to a bit of sweet malt. Also I get some mango too.

T: Insanely drinkable. For a 9% beer this is goes down so smooth. Nice bitter hop presence but due to the single hop variety, obvisously this beer isn't as complex as other DIPAs. I'm not taking off points - it is what it is. Just a little sweetness as the beer warms. Love that kick.

M: Medium body and the beer lingers on the palate as you drink. Again, for a 9% beer it's amazingly refreshing.

O: This one will creep up on you. Whoa. Almost dangerously drinkable. I think as an example of a single hop DIPA, it's great. As a DIPA it's well above average. Excellent work here - might be my go to DIPA due to its drinkability.

Draft into a pint glass

A: Soft light brown with a reddish hue. Very murky, almost muddy. Not unlike a lake in a Stephen King movie. Fairly thin, bubbly, burnt sienna head.

S: Strong sweet floral hops. A rich but fairly generic IPA aroma.

T: More complex than the nose leads on. Bitter hops hit first and then again on the back, but in the middle, there is a very distinct sweetness that holds it all together. You can taste the alcohol, but not as much as you might. Good, but nothing truly spectacular.

MF: Nice carbonation brings out the bitter hops. Decent body, but not too clingy. Heavy, but goes down easily enough.

D: Good drinking IPA. Not too heavy, nice flavor, but nothing to write home about. Personally, I prefer Weyerbacher’s Hops Infusion.

On tap at World of Beer Raleigh. Served in a snifter.

A - dark orange with a thin lacing of white head.

S - floral, grapefruit; delicious, bold hop aromas

T - bread, mango, peach, pineapple, alcohol

M - medium bodied, thin at times, warm

This is a nicely hopped, fruity, citrusy DIPA. The presence of peaches along with the mango and pineapple was unique to me and rather enjoyable. A bit more body I think would help tremendously, but otherwise this was a decent DIPA.

A- copper-like in color with a fist-full of a tan, thick head that stays on the glass

S- aggressive hops that sting the nostrils a little. a bit of breadiness pushes through

T- thick, resiny mouthfeel that's initially all hops. some doughy flavors ease in as well as some nutty undertones from the yeast. slight fruity flavors as well

O- this is a big-time beer...a sipper. well worth the 6.50 for a 25 oz bottle
