Strong amber color; fine fluffy, creamy head. Good spicy aroma; some Vienna and caramel malt; spicy and bitter; some alcohol. Heavy body; biting; residual sugars; somewhat hot.

A fair DIPA yet rather coarse and heavy-handed.

Aroma is citrus, floral and sweetish malts. The flavor is fruit/citrus, earthy malts a mild nutty hint and a mix of mix of mild sweetness and increasingly spicy hops finish.

3.68/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours with an impressive head pillowing the hazy amber liquid; excellent retention and splotchy lace

Smell: Dank and sappy, with an orange marmalade character; smells caramel sweet and bitter

Taste: A lot of malt forward, with butterscotch tones prominent; growing bitterness, through the middle, with orange marmalade and grapefruit pith building into a dank character; the finish has elements of both the bitterness and the malts but the malts predominate in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and sticky, with moderate carbonation

Overall: Back in the day, I tried the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Anniversaries and didn't care for a one of them; thought I would check this out as IPAs have come along way since 2010; unfortunately, this one hasn't changed with the times; a well brewed beer if you like this sort of thing

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Simple orange label

L : Cloudy golden copper pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head. Outstanding lacing.

S: Dank and hoppy. Citrus/grapefruit... mango and fruit.

T/F: A rich malt backbone sets the palate up. Big bigger hops... lots of tropicals... grapefruit and mango. Pine sap.... and then more bitterness. Medium in body.... oily on the tongue. The finish is bitter grapefruit rind. Warming and slightly boozy.

O: This is a powerhouse of a DIPA. Great bitterness... slightly boozy... but balanced enough to be dangerously drinkable. Really enjoyed this. Glad I have another bottle.

650 mL bottle. Slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Smells of grapefruit, soap, alcohol, and sweet oranges. Tastes of orange, grapefruit, heavy alcohol presence. Pretty sweet, but dries out significantly. Very boozy. Decent, but way too big to be very enjoyable.

22oz bottle $7.49. Orange color, short head but a ton of lacing on the glass. Aroma is hoppy and boozy. Flavor is boozy, kind of syrupy mouthfeel with a great dose of hops. The syrupy sweetness is too much for me however.

This lovely brew kicks you where you can feel it. It begins with a decent head and an inviting aroma. It's taste is a bit on the bitter side, but I mean that in a good way. The bitterness does not linger too long. I probably hold grudges longer, which technically makes me more bitter than this delicious beer.

Nice creamy head, tons of lacing, clear tan color

Nose big dank hops, spicy pine sap resin, big sweet malts, syrupy, oniony, grassy, very spicy chewy hops.

Taste sweet syrupy, super dank resinous, pine sap, oniony, but also tastes like weed, very bitter spicy, sticky sweet finish, more warming booze.

Mouth is med bod syrupy warming booze

Overall eh, hops are very strange.
