Orange amber with a whisp of white suds. Standing tall in a shaker pint.

Pine, orange, white grapefruit, lemon peel. Herby and citrusy with a piney foundation. Malts are almost English in style, like an Imperial English IPA. Some booze.

Pine and booze first, with an orange-y citrus middle. Finishes with leafy hops and some malt sweetness. Green and herbal toward the end, but not grassy. Packs a punch with the alcohol where it is.

Medium-bodied. Feels lighter with crackles of carb. Almost unravels in the mouth.

This one's pretty good, and I'd totally have it again, but it just doesn't stand apart from the pack.

Serving type: on-tap

On-tap at Oblivion in Orlando. Pours a light golden amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is a lot of citrusy hops with some malt as well. The taste is sweet malt up front with a lot of bitter citrusy hops and warmth from the alcohol lingering well into the finish. Overall, a pretty solid DIPA.

Served in a snifter at Firkin.

I remember trying a sample of this down at McGee's almost a year ago and not being all that impressed, but I figured I'd give it a full shot while I'm here at Firkin. It pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-cream-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, orange zest, light lemon peel, and a backbone of light toffee. Everything is bright and happy and expressive. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a few flowers tossed in for good measure. Now everything comes through a touch rindier than before, but not by very much. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a tasty little DIPA, one that doesn't overdo the hops, creating a generally pleasant drinking experience.

Poured on tap into a tulip glass.

A murky apricot and brown body color, some lemon hues towards the bottom. Head is light soapy prsented with a finger tall size. Carbonation rises slowly and very pin head small. Faint streaky lacing whioe drinking.

Nose is malt sweet and thick juicy. Hop angle gives a thick mushy fruit tropical with a mild sweetness. A little bit of spritzy character hides in the back. Very nice.

Light bodied and a real nice lingering hop finish. Soft orange fruits and tropical juices finish on the end. Quick lingering pine needles in the mid palate. Stomach warming but without a boozy taste. Good carbonation on this also, malts show up with a warming mix of bread and honey after some time. Pineapple really seems to come out after some time.

Real solid brew, glad to be having it.
