A- 12oz bottle split to ways with a fairly hazy, chalky apricot amber body. A small head rises to slightly below one finger with foamy, frothy textures and decent retention. A bubbly ring deposits a thin but large sheet of lace with spots surrounding that.

S- Hoppy up front but a fair amount of caramel and malt right there with it. Hops have a citrus feel with oranges and stone fruits in there too. Not much distinctive going on here for me.

T- Things open up more here with notes of stone fruit yet not juicy, bitter orange peel, grapefruit, pine and earthy hops. Somewhat dank. Lightly malty and just a bit of yeast fruits.

MF- Medium bodied with a silky, slightly creamy consistency. Carbonation is at a moderate level and fairly smooth. Finishes with a medium bitterness lingering. Comes off just a bit thin when it is all combined.

The aroma left me a bit disappointed but thing improved in the flavor with more distinct notes of hops coming out. A decent Double IPA but nothing truly shines and that takes it down a notch from the best of the bunch.

Surprising coal-brown color. Intensely bitter and multifaceted, but the flavors come rather muddled. Or, not muddled, but with distinctions drowned out by the blaring intensity of the overall, in-your-face flavor profile. The two most prominent being a lemon-peel bitterness and the roasty bitter of a schwarzbier. Malt sweetness? Not that I can detect.
