Pours a clear gold. Smells of citrus. Pours a crystal clear medium gold color. Soapy white pillowy head forms and has well above average retention. Leaves lots of lace on the pint glass. Aroma of grapefruit and zested lemon. In the flavor, herbal and citrusy. Bitterness wins out over a pale and grainy malt body. Alcohol is present and is felt halfway though the glass. Medium bodied feel. Clean with a little hi-alpha influence in the finish. Overall this is a success. I can formally recommend it.

Cask at Max's Taphouse in Baltimore.
Nice creamy foamy typical cask head, nice lacing, hazy golden honey color.
Nose musty slight resinous hop, some citrus and very light tropical fruit but a guava or papaya like fruit, some citra hop aromas, very faint malt base.
Taste nice fresh leafy hop characters, fresh musty very slightly resinous hop, tropical fruit brings papaya and guava again but little citrusy tropical fruit. Light grassy floral taste too, then nice light malty balance, good cask feel. Finish is dry and fairly bitter but it never gets too bitter, lingering nice citrus like character and grassy flavors.
Mouth is med bod, decent carb for cask, booze is hidden very well if it really is 10%.
Overall quite nice tasty, and good cask impression too.

Perfect clarity on a orange brew, foamy off-white head lingers for sometime... Spotty lacing.
Pine, apricots, pear, boozey.
Spicy, strong, nice pine hop bite, hidden heat, but you can tell it's strong due to the bite. Bitterness is very dry, oily, and mouthy. Carbonation is a bit too much. Not sweet and syrupy like some DIPAs.
A solid offering from Flying Dog, one of the first FB Brews I've had in many years...it sure surprised. I wonder what else is coming out from these guys?? Recommend @ $3/12oz

The appearance is pretty nice with the combination of the orange amber beer and ligh beige head which is substanical.
Aroma is not as hoppy as I might have been expecting. The hops have a nice freshness and I'm getting floral aromas.
Taste is big bold and sticky sweet with a small amount of cloying in the aftertaste. At 10% not getting alot of booze in the taste. Finishes dry and bitter.
Pretty good. I'm not usually a DIPA fan with them tending to be more bitter then flavorfull but this one has some good flavor which is nice.
