4.28/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

P: 12 oz bottle with elephants on orange background
A: Hazy copper color (bottle cond), 1/4 inch head dissipates quickly
S: Nice, citrusy hops, some sweet malt and just a hint of alcohol
T: Sweet up front with biscuity malt, then hops everywhere, great aftertaste-like hop juice, similar to the almighty Dreadnaught
M: Perfect for style, slick but not too heavy, stays on the tongue
D: 2 or 3 max and at 10%, it's bedtime after 3

Notes: It aint Dreadnaught, but it's close enough given the cheaper cost and year round availability. Brewery is only an hour away, so it's easy to get it fresh. This is probably my "house" double IPA.

Picked up a 4 pack in DC, first week of April 2014. Poured into a snifter.

This DIPA has a cloudy haze to its copper orange color. Head is plentiful, three fingers thick, foamy and pillow-like. Lace is abundant and scattered and the head shows some great persistence.

There's a bittersweet citrus aroma on the nose, reminiscent of grapefruit. It's got that dank quality, some citrus peel, and a sweet malt presence.

Ooh, this has a pungent citrus flavor. Almost like orange juice and reminds me a bit of Deschutes Fresh Squeezed. The flavor is alternately sweet citrus and dry orange peel. Complementing these elements is a sweet maltiness about mid-palate that lends some breadiness or toast. It all works very well. I like this quite a bit.

Bitterness up front leads way to citrusy sweetness, then the thick malt middle. The beer has a long dry finish that is somewhat like biting into an orange. It's pretty easy drinking for a DIPA and isn't hot at all.

I discovered this beer through the recommendation of a Whole Foods beer-buyer and I'm glad I did. It's tasty and heavy on citrus, so I can get my vitamin C intake for the day.

A- A dark hue resembling a light black tea color. Topped with a good 2 finger head. Exceptional lacing with this beer.

S- Sweet hoppy notes. floral. Fruity notes are over the top intense. Yeasty bread.

T- Wow. Just...Wow. sweet hoppy flavor. A pale bitterness in the mix but it really softens out in the finish. Tropical fruits twisted with a bready flavor. Just awesome.

M- thicker with a smooth syrup texture from the hop sugars. Very full body.

O- This one is at the top of my DIPA scale. It is simply in a class all it's own. Very rarely do you come across a beer that packs this much flavor into 12 simple ounces. All I need is a good loaf of Italian bread and a tall glass of this and paradise is not too far off.
