Poured into a 12 oz tulipish glass Game of Thrones glass and best before August 20 Pours a very attractive orange, with a very nice 2 finger sticky white head that leaves plenty of streaks of thin lace behind.

Smell is apricot, mango, guava, pine resin, and grapefruit.

Taste follows kind of tropical upfront, before it assaults your entire palate with ripe grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is pretty large, plenty of carbonation, maybe a touch dry, almost sticky on the tongue from all the fresh hops, and assaults the palate, but for a hops junky like myself goes down very easy.

Overall this is old school West Coast, but has some nice tropical notes that really add a lot. Thanks @jzeilinger for excellent DIPA.

pours golden with a thick head

smell is fruity and sweet, nothing special

taste is very bitter, finishes bitter and dry. leaves a lingering bitterness. body is somewhat thin. sharp taste yet is still a good beer.

Appearance - Pours clear deep orange color with thick soapy white head.

Aroma - Lots of tropical fruit mango, orange, pineapple and pine. Slight malt presence as well.

Taste - Excellent balance of mango, orange and grapefruit along with super pine bitterness. Just a touch of sweet malts at the end.

Feel - Medium bodied well carbonated nice bite and slightly dry.

Overall - A great DIPA, very balanced flavors and the alcohol is well hidden.

Citrus, bitter, smooth. BB Date of July, four pack of tall boys. I'm an old school West Coast IPA guy living in the new jungle of NE IPAs. More often than not, I find myself eschewing those big, fruit-forward and low IBU ales for something with the description of "citrus, pine, resin, bitter" popping up in most BA reviews....and this baby is one of them. A true West Coast classic. Orange gold pour with faint clarity; nice puffy one-notch head that lingers for a bit. Aroma of pine, fresh cut citrus and a tiny bit of spiced spruce. Taste is orange, pink grapefruit, fresh cut grass, resin, a spicy earthiness on the backend with a nice lingering bitterness. Crisp, clean and smooth all around. Alcohol nowhere to be found. Two of these and I'm all set for the evening, thank you very much.
