Orange pour, flimsy off white head on top. Aroma was sweet malt foremost, got some hops in there for sure, mostly c hops.

Syrupy, thick viscosity hop oils, sweet caramel, lots of bitterness of the grapefruit variety. They make better double ipas and whatnot.

Auburn but more orange, off white foam. Immediate fresh wet hop, ripe mango, citrus and no green. Mouth coating and syrupy. Thick.

Serving Type on Tap poured into a Tulip glass

Appearance- A golden hue, solid white head, big alcohol legs, consistent with a West Coast Triple IPA

Smell- Big wet hops, pine cone, citrus zest, orange peel, melons, malty notes

Taste- Big wet hops up front in the true West Coast Triple IPA style true to form, citrus notes, orange peel malty, big alcohol booze notes but works well with the beer

Mouthfeel- Smooth, malty, lingering after taste of all of the flavors

Overall- One of my favorite IPA's that are made locally where I live any time this is on tap at the Auburn Ale House I make a point of getting up there and having it on tap and bringing home a bottle or two...

A: Translucent Reddish orange with a white head.

S: Sweet nectary mango and tangerine, orange, papaya and tropical fruit in the nose.

T: Sweet nectary mango, tangerine, orange, papaya, tropical fruit, malt, pine and mango.

M: Full bodied and foamy, kind of harsh but kind of smooth. Weird.

O: Not quite as good as their other DIPA, but damn good. Definitely worth a try.
