I tried this one on recommendation of my beer guy. It Pours a hazy copper brown with a one finger off white head that lasts substantially longer than most and gives way to an off white lacing. The aroma on this beer is surprising for an ipa. More malt than hops. The flavor is consistent with that assessment, being sweeter and maltier than your typical double ipa. It is still a very enjoyable offering but not packing the hoppy bitter punch that one expects from a double ipa. This is a well crafted beer but seems more Apa than ipa. I'm not sure if it is one that I would return to often...If at all.

Found this tucked away and forgotten on the shelf of a hole in the wall liquor store....6 months old..like the hazy coloring and the malty after taste...not sure the ABV is accurately stated on the site here (not listed on the bottle)...if it's accurate this could be a tasty, and dangerous, treat.

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - Copper, orange, slight amber, 1 finger white head.

Smell - Orange and pineapple, malt, not a lot of alcohol.

Taste - Pineapple, orange, tangerine, some oily resin at first, moves on to character from the malt backing, roasty, biscuity, and then finally I get some more resin, pine, bitter flavors and then it settles.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, medium carbonation, refreshing

Overall - Good beer. Definitely not dissipointed and having said that this is also not one that will be breaking into the favorite category. Enjoyable, might buy again next year.

You would think that Raul would only be into California beach bunnies, but let me tell you: no way, no how! The main man loves all the girlies from all the regions of the world. And that's where Mr. Delicious comes in; this isn't a SoCal, West Coast IPA that Raul is used to. Uh huh. No way! This thang is dark and almost copper in color. It's a bit syrupy, a bit creamy, and a bit good!

Yeah buddy! Not the best, but Raul likes it quite well.
