This beer pours a crystal amber color with a kaki head that leaves a lot of lacing as it dissipates.
I smell a lot of citrus and pinapple in the aroma. This beer has a huge hop aroma. So much that I can't smell anything else.
I get the pinapple, citrus, and cherry in the flavor. Sweet malty and huge hops but not overly bitter.
Thick resiny mouthfeel but tha does not hinder the drinkability. This is possibly the smoothest double IPA that I have ever drank.
Serving type: growler

Served in a 9oz snifter for $5.25. Sampled 10/1/10.
A: A small white foamy head provides decent retention. The body has an 80% opacity that provides a color range from rustic orange through auburn, then dark copper at the core. There is a light smathering of lace in broken sedimentary fashion.
S: The nose absolutely bursts with orange, peach and pineapple plus a caramel component that is more than adequate. The crust of dark bread adds depth to the malt foundation.
T: Summer and tropical fruits combine for good flavor duration. Moderate caramelly sweetness and restrained bitterness add a bit of east coast flare to a west coast style. Alcohol comes through meagerly to no real surprise.
M: Medium body with a perfectly lively carbonation.
D: [DRINKABILITY] Detonation is a top echelon DIPA - but only by east coast standards. Easy to drink with enough complexity to add intrigue. Well done Oliver.
Serving type: on-tap
