This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a ruddy burnt orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Lacing was fairly clingy with ringy foaminess gracing the sides of the tulip. The smell started off with dried pine, dried mango, bitter orange rind, light honey, and a sticky sweet papaya to balance. The taste had a pure bittersweet bliss running into the previously mentioned flavors and slapping around the hops creating the flavor on into the aftertaste in a fairly sticky sweet to bitter fashion. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice semi-sticky bittersweet hoppiness clinging nicely to my tongue. Overall, this was a really nice DIPA that I would definitely have again.

2016 release.

Pours orange with a thin white head that dissipates steadily. Sticky white lacing and some spotty white foam is left on the top of the beer. Beer is full of floating chinky particles suspended in the beer. It looks pretty gross.

Beer aroma is very dank, lots of pine, sap and grapefruit. Malty backbone. There is a soapy character to the aroma.

Taste has some notes of grapefruit and pine - very bitter. Tons of dank grass, sap and pine on the backend. Not much malt is noted in the taste.

Feel is standard for the style. Medium carbonation. nothing special.

Overall this is just an odd beer. I really can't get past the fact that the beer is full of chunky particles. It just looks gross. The taste is extremely bitter - up there with the most bitter of west coast style IPAs. To me, this is an ok beer - certainly nothing world class. But hey, its got the name recognition going (covering) for it.

From the growler purchased at the WRJ Co-Op, it pours a moderately dark amber with a nice head. Lots of floral notes in the nose. Malt and a slight bitterness in the mouth. Good IPA!
