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

This brew is 8.5% ABV and pours a hazy orange/guava hue with nice carbonation that leaves behind a two finger head and some clingy lacing,the smell is very nice with aromas of sweet piney,resinous hops being dominant on the forefront followed by some boiled candy and citrus zest,it has a nice light-medium bodied mouthfeel which is perfectly carbonated to allow the flavours of sweet honeysuckle,passionfruit,candied oranges and marmalade to make themself known and finishes with a sticky grapefruit bitterness and overall its definately a pleasant brew to drink which makes this competition that this brewery promotes well worthwhile and i will buy this again without doubt.

On-tap at Taco Mac Metropolis in Atlanta.

Pours a hazy orange-copper color with a half-finger cream-colored head. The head recedes into a patchy layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of a combination of pale and caramel malts with good amounts of herbal and earthy hop aromas. Also present are lighter amounts of pine.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Robust pale and caramel malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by mildly spicy and herbal hop flavors. Shortly thereafter the hop flavors turn more toward pine as the flavor profile dries out a bit. Pine hop flavors carry through to a solidly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is very good. It's got a nice thickness with grainy carbonation.

Drinkability is good. I had no problems finishing my glass and could have another.

Overall this beer represents a lot of Scandanavian IPA's for me, well-balanced malt influence that dries out a bit midway through the sip with earthy and herbal hops. Worth a shot.

On tap at Max's today.

The beer pours a slightly hazy, orange amber color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is attractive in this beer, showcasing earth, considerable orange citrus and light ice tea. The flavor profile replicates the nose, but with a considerable amount of sweet malt, and a bitter, somewhat piney finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a fairly long bitter finish. Drinkability is OK, though the sweet malt and noticeable alcohol wear me out after a bit.

This isn't a style of DIPA that I'm a huge fan of, but nevertheless, there's no denying that this is a well crafted beer.

I had this on tap at Max's in Fell's Point, Md.

A deep golden hued brew with semi-hazy appearance and thick cap of pale cream. The nose has a lot of piney smelling hops which are pungent and full in the nose. The feel is thick resinous and strong with a strong bitter quality and semi-dry finish with light astringency.

The flavor is focused on the hops which have a very intense bitter quality that gives you sharp pine and slightly grassy notes with an undercurrent of citrus. The flavor of the malt gives a slight sweet accent to the hops, but really just anchors the beer. I found this to fit the style well and even though high abv -9% plus I am sure, it is one you want to have again so get it if it is available. It satisfied the hop-head in me.
