22oz brown bomber.

LOOK: Cloudy amber hue, thin sticky lace

SMELL: Mandarin oranges, caramel, rose water, grassy, estery

TASTE: Creamy, slick, fullish body, very bitter, faintly astringent, citrus overload, rind, pith, zest, warming alcohol, bittersweet finish

A bit off kilter, could be considered a hoppy Barleywine. Regardless, flavorful enough and fun enough to make me want to take another sip.

Served: straight out of the bottle...I know...wasn't expecting much.

Appearance: I can't rate this. I drank it from the bottle. Kudos for using a brown bottle though.

Aroma: quite nice. Unexpected from a beer with a screw top. It's defiantly all hops. Lets see if the taste matches.

Taste: wonderful. Fresh hops, citrus and some malts. The high gravity is masked. Always a plus.

Mouthfeel: it is a bit too carbonated, but that's ok. One should take their time savoring this one.

Overall: good double IPA. Very true to the name. Nice label. Don't underestimate the screw top.

This is a deep, richly honeyed sort of amber color, fairly thick in the middle and opaque, for the most part, with some cloudiness to it. The head is a creamy yellow-tinted one, almost a full finger's height with adequate lace sticking to the glass.
Lots of citrus and a boozy note hit the nostrils, an impression of triple sec before some candied orange peel and powdered sugar sweetness transitions to more of a floral and perfume note.
Hops show up a little more strongly in the flavor; it's not an exceptionally hoppy beer, particularly for the style, but it isn't weak. It works in such a way that it does find balance without being overly malty. Oddly, it's a beer that someone who doesn't like hoppy beers may actually like, but it doesn't give up the bitterness. There's a ton of overall citrus character, but the zest (rind) and pith show quite a bit.
The body is medium, fairly creamy and plenty crisp, going ever so slightly astringent just on the end.

Had on tap at Brews by the Bay.

A: Pours a copper/amber color with a small fizzy head with decent retention. Little whisps of lacing form on the glass.

S: Some grapefruit, caramel, brown sguar, and some faint pine. Slightly sweet, not as hoppy as I thought it might be.

T: More grapefruit and citrus with some pine coming during the middle. There is some more caramelized malt, a touch more than I was hoping for.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Abv was well hidden for 10%.

O: A pretty good effort, a little sweeter than I usually go for in a DIPA, would have liked to have been a bit more bitter. Will grab a bottle when I see it and give another shot and update if needed.

Pours dark orange with a minimal head. The smell has a very nice cirrus and hop blend which instantly gave me high hopes this was a Damond in the rough. BUT, the smell unfortunately was the best part of the beer. Not all that much citrus or hops present. I kept smelling and tasting cause it almost seems impossible for something to smell this hoppy and citrusy to have such a bland taste. Nothing great here , but to be fair, nothing really bad either. Just sort of middle of the road double IPA that I would only get if the beer menu lacked any other kind of crafts. Not worth seeking out.
