Pours a clear, gold color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, sweet malt, alcohol, hint of earthy malt, and floral hops. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of alcohol, hops, citrus, sweet malt, and earthy malt. Overall, great appearance, good aroma, and decent body.

Great taste of an imperial without the alcohol level of most. Could almost be a session imperial, if that is actually a thing. Sweetness at first taste, pine, maple, citrus, hard candy, then not too dry and nice grapefruit finish with a slight smokey after taste. Nothing bitter lingering.
I think this beer is better than the other reviews and should be defiantly given a try.

Bottle > Bowtie Glass

A - Clear yellow light gold with a half a finger of fizzy white head, no lacing.
S - Pine, citrus, big sweet caramel candy kinda malts.
T - Tons of heat, both from a spicy piney powerful hop bite and from the alcohol, some nice grass and grapefruit juice tones to it, too bad it gets buried by ibu's.
M - Too aggressive and bitter, very abrasive, almost soapy.
O - Its a shame this is a waste of a beer, there's too much hop potency in a bad way, its filled with alcohol burn. Total palate destroyer.

12oz picked up tonight at Brewer's Haven Boise on the way home from work... Pours a fairly clear dark golden/light orangish.... decent white head... great lacing.

Nose is pretty standard/average DIPA territory... piney essence with some grapefruit pith back.... cracker malt/dry toast maltiness carries the hops... balanced, but too heavy toward the malt to really grab my attention.

Flavor doesn't have nearly big enough bitter bite to be in the DIPA category, especially in the PNW... instead almost an orange juice essence spiked with pithy zest is the hop big player... again, it seems too malty with a pretty substantial pale malt presence from front to back.

Body is right... carbonation is on the light side for the style.

Really, this is a pretty okay beer... no real flaws... but anybody calling their beer a DIPA nowadays has some benchmarks to live up to and this bottle just barely skates by.
