Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.
Appearance: Pours a clear copper amber orange with a moderate amount of rising bubbles. Solid two fingers of off white head with decent retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass.
Smell: A big juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with big hints of citrus and earthy hops with some backing caramel malt. Upfront scent of ripe citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, pineapple, apricot, lemon, and tangerine. Earthy hop presence with hints of dank pine resin and grass. Solid backing presence of malt with hints of caramel, grains, biscuit, yeast, and cracker. A very good hoppy aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, a very juicy and earthy hop driven IPA taste with big notes of citrus, pine, and caramel malt. Big upfront taste of ripe and juicy citrus hops with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, apricot, pineapple, tangerine, and lemon. Earthy and herbal hops with notes of dank and spicy pine resin and grass. Hops are nicely bitter and oily. Backing of sweet malt with notes of caramel, biscuit, grains, cracker, and yeast. A very good IPA taste.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Very juicy, oily, and drying. Alcohol heat is minimal.
Overall: A very good Imperial IPA. Has a West Coast style presence of tropical fruits with a solid caramel malt backing.

A pretty beer. In a snifter the beer poured a clear amber color with a small white head. There was a bit of lace.
A mostly pine aroma. Some citrus. Sweet malt.
Pine resin taste primarily. A wee bit of grapefruit. Caramel.
Sticky. Sweet and hoppy.

Poured from the tap.
The beer is a rich, amber colour. Very light nose, hoppy, citrus, and clean. The taste was not as bitter as expected, but had a citrus and hop flavour. Very clean, balanced, and not intense. Slight bitter aftertaste.
Would I buy it again? Yes.

3.81/5 rDev -2.8%
A: 3.75 Dark orange-amber with a small head.
S: 4.25 Big aroma, evident clearly when it's just sitting in front of me. Ripe fruity citrus hop scent.
T: 4 This is certainly a strong IPA, though the body is surprisingly light. Very high bitterness and a lot of grapefruit-citrus hop flavor. Malt doesn't really stand up to the hops, despite the strength. This is for hop lovers.
M: 4.25 as I mentioned, rather light for strength
O: 4 Pretty good double IPA.
Weighted 20%,20,40,5,15: 3.81.

A - Pours a clear amber with a one-finger creamy head. Very light lacing.
S - Heavy aroma of grapefruit and pine.
T - Follows the aroma with lots of grapefruit and resinous hops. There is just enough caramel sweetness to balance the bitterness.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbnation. Mouthfeel is sticky with a dry finish.
O - A nice very hop forward DIPA. Very easy drinking.
