Pours a bright golden yellow, hazy with moderate cap of bubbles, some sticky lacing. Scent brings tropical and citrus fruits, floral hops, biscuity malts and suggary sweetness. Big bitter grapefruit rind and juice on the tongue, some muted tropical and floral notes, biscuity sweet malt backbone. Medium bodied, a touch bubbly. A decent, full flavored and bittered IPA, not very complex, but enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - almost clear, golden with some orange tint. lacy head

S - bready with a slight citrus twinge.

T - earthy, piny, boozy, and bitterly sweet, malt flavor had a sweet bready taste

M - medium body, medium carbonation. Smooth and classic bitter finish.

O - I thought it was a good imperial. or "double IPA". There are many others I favor more, but this wasn't a bad buy. For almost 10%, it is a good beer. Smooth to drink, but for the Hop Heads!

One of my favorite DIPA's, here it goes:

Look is a clear orange-amber with no rising bubbles and a small sticky white head. Smell is pungent pine, lemon, some saltine crackers, and a whiff of alcohol. Taste is more pine and lemon, slightly woody, bready, with a spicy kick of alcohol and spice in the finish. Feel is slightly slick, but pleasantly so. Low carbonation, and the alcohol is there but not offensive in any way.

Superb, I've been waiting all summer to try this again. Would love to sample this on-tap.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - translucent golden orange, with a large cap of soft, dense, white head

S - bready, maybe some cake batter, little hop aroma

T - bready malts, a little sweetness, bitter hops, piny, oak, earthy

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

For the ABV, this is incredibly smooth and drinkable. The malt/hop balance is superb. The oak comes through but adds complexity and doesn't detract from the other flavors. Overall, a really solid, DIPA. I really enjoyed this one.
