22oz bierkraft 'growler'. Pours a hazy coppery orange in color with a good sized cream colored head, laces nicely as consumed. Aroma is some nice piney and peppery hoppiness along with some citrusy hop aromas of orange rind, tangerine, grapefruit. Taste shows a nice caramel malty body that blends well with some orange and tangerine, before a crisp turn to pepperiness and bitterness mixed with a piney flavor in the finish. Mouthfeel is outstanding, medium in body, nice malty body is perfectly proportionate in that it never takes the front seat but is big enough to balance the beer without becoming too sweet or syrupy. Some tingling pepperiness on the tongue is followed by a very nice rush of drying and puckery bitterness. abv is well hidden. Overall a very good beer, this particular examples mouthfeel stood out most for me and is what helped to make it a highly drinkable dipa. Thanks to one of my favorite traders for this sample, thanks G!

A - Orange Gold with one finger of foamy white head, medium lacing.
S - Orange a little mango, big caramel malts, pine.
T - Caramel malt takes the for then you get some orange and dank pine, a little of that mango comes in, some grassy notes.
M - Sweet chewy, a little cloyingly sweet.
O - Good Double IPA, just a lot of malt, which they boast balance, but its a little off. Good flavor and aroma.

A: Deep orange color with a nice white head that quickly dissipates.
S: Pine, Hops, Floral scents.
T: A perfect balance of hops-to-malt. Super smooth drink-ability. Such a good blend. Very "west coast". Hop bomb up front with a pretty nice malt back bone.
M: Good lingering bitterness, not overwhelming, but just right for a double IPA.
Overall: This is a really good one. Will definitely be enjoying again in the near future.
