Pours a blood orange with a thick white head. Smells piney and very citrusy. Tastes citrusy and finishes with a strong pine. Bitter initially but not terrible even for 90 ibu's. Would drink again.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 11/11/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon/orange peel, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice DIPA style. All around great complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours a copper body with a rich, frumpy white head with excellent retention. Big floral aromas blend with fresh leafiness and a hint of caramel, with the sweeter notes less pronounced than in my favorite double IPAs. Tastes good but simply lacks the sweetness of many double IPAs. Hop-dominant, with zesty orange peel and resinous flavors overwhelm the taste from start to finish. I wish it had a maltier mid-palate to make it more interesting.
