A: Hazyish orange with a white ring of head.

S: Orange, citrus peel, mango, tangerine and a hint of grass and pine in the nose.

T: Citrus, lemon, orange, pine, and a touch of grass.

M: Full bodied and smooth for an IPA which is nice.

O: A great DIPA, flavors were off a bit (they didn't taste extremely fresh or authentic, though they were still pretty good), otherwise I'd have given it higher ratings.

My first double IPA and it did not disappoint at all. Sitting at a hefty 10% ABV it didn't feel like it. It went smooth,while still retaining the hoppy characteristics of an IPA. The balance of this brew is not to be underestimated, you may see the 10% and think it to be strong/overpowering but it is not. It's a very evenly balanced beer that can be enjoyed by anyone from seasoned IPA drinkers to those venturing out of their comfort zone unto IPA territory.

If you see this on-tap, do not hesitate to try this brew, you will not regret it.

12 oz into pint glass. BAM! This is an double-barreled shotgun of an IPA. Nice and strong but balanced enough to want more than one. My first "double-IPA" but I like the big, bold character of this brew. Yet another powerhouse from Great Divide. Cheers!
