Bottled on date of 03/07/13
Appearance - Pours a hazy, rustic orange with an off-white finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a broken layer of microbubbles across the surface. Lacing is spotty at best with little stick.
Smell - Juicy hop aroma, with orange and stone fruit character leading the bill.
Taste - Follows the nose. Juicy fruits dominate the palate; orange zest and stonefruit. Slight nuttiness. Malts get a bit lost in the shuffle, but peak through with a ghostly bread like presence. Orange rind bitterness bites in the the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Smooth approach before a bone dry finish.
Overall - Not a bad DIPA, but not one that really stands out from the pack. It's a beautiful label on the bottle, which does stand out from the pack and is mostly the reason for why you're reading this review. Would I buy it again? Maybe, but it's not a beer I'd go and intentionally seek out.

Served on tap into a tulip glass.
A- Poured a hazy orange color with off-white soapy head with big bubbles that left webbed lacing.
S- Huge pungent grapefruit, piney, and orange citrus notes. Lots of huge juicy hop character in the aroma, very strong and aromatic.
T- Lots of sweet and juicy grapefruit, big piney hops, orange citrus, dankness, and some tropical fruit notes. Very pungent, juicy, and lots of sweetness for a DIPA, but pretty low bitterness for the style.
M-Prickly carbonation, fuller bodied, some warming, semi-dry finish, and slightly syrupy.
O- This is an intensely hoppy and enjoyable DIPA> Very concentrated hoppiness with lots of residual sweetness but not over the top.
Serving type: on-tap
