hazy orange rusty color. frothy off-white head, good lacing and head retention. earthy and piney hop aroma. taste has some good caramel malt body to support the big hoppy flavors. mouthfeel is a bit slick on the tongue, medium carbonation. works well. couldn't tell this was 10% abv at all. dangerous, and tasty.

Awesome head retention! A very will-built brew. Solid orange/red color with fantastic clarity. Head is tan and densely foamy. Great lacing too.

Apricots, dark red apples, woody, pine, resinous.

Holy bitterness, yet well done. Smooth and delicious bitterness that well rounded and has great lasting flavor. Lots of depth and consistently changing and melding flavors. Very light and easy drinking for a thick hearty dense IPA. Lots of great pine flavors without being a hop bomb. If anything is bad about the flavor, it's that it's just a bit too sugary...but, not overly so.

Very well thought out and nicely executed DIPA. Highly recommended!!! A must try for sure. Great work GDBC, keep em' coming!
