A decent double...I have had better...it looks great! Frothy head, beautiful lacing...was lacking in the nose department, which is very important for me. Taste was good, feel is excellent...but lacking the nose/taste that fits the looks.

A solid DIPA. Great looking pour - significant head - hazy gold - real good looking beer. Smell is what I expected - citrus -but a hint of breadiness. Taste is solid, yet not distinctive. I wanted a more bitter beer with a richer flavor that matches the hefty mouthfeel. The beer is weighty in mouthfeel. Solid and would definitely choose it over most on a beer menu.

Golden, lemon up to the light, with lots of carb rising, and 2 fingers of white foam, that lasts. The aroma is tropical, fleshy, citrus, and a bit bready. The flavor is, again, fleshy, which is new to me. Lots of citrus and tropical flavors, and bready malt. The feel is well carbonated, medium full body, and dry. Overall, it reminds me of a suped-up Racer 5 IPA, + the fleshy parts. Nice stuff.

Pours a straw yellow with thick head and sticky lacing, loads of carbonation. Smells of hops, citrus, pine. Tastes very nice, dry hoppy beer with interlacing of citrus and dry grapefruit. A very nice DIPA, light to medium feel, very tasty.

Picked up a single at Total Wine in Las Vegas. Can had a couple months on it, but was still a solid brew. Would like to try again fresh

Can from Imperial Bottleshop.

A clear orange with a dense, white head with excellent retention and lacing, this looks great! The nose is a blend of grapefruit juice, pine and a moderately tropical fruit blend - mango, papaya and peach fuzz. A mild malt sweetness is present. The palate opens with a blend of honey-like sweetness, a potent grapefruit bitterness and some pine notes. This is followed by a wave of hop flavor - peach, mango, papaya, grape, Honeydew melon and tangelos. Drying, bitter, pungent on the finish, this beer is medium-light in body and moderately carbonated. The bitterness that lingers on in the finish is vintage Pizza Port - potent, brash, unapologetic and yet thoroughly welcome. A very well-executed DIPA
