Pours a clear copper color with a big, soapy white head that lingers and laces.

Smells of clean grapefuit and some citrus, some light vegetal quality also comes through.

Taste is up front grapefruit with just a hint of bready malt that goes into a more citrus, stone fruit middle before ending on a bitter, but not astringent, floral/grapefruit/citrus note. Not bad, but it doesn't jump out either.

Medium body with medium carbonation, the alcohol is balanced well.

This is a cascade, grapefruit bomb and a fine DIPA.

A: Clear yellow-brown pour with at least 3 fingers of white head. The head laces a ton while receding and lasts a really long while.

S: Really piney and citrus aroma with a nice malty base. The dry, piney hops really shine through here. I think I'm getting a touch of booze, but nothing out of the ordinary. This has a really nice balance, and an inviting aroma overall.

T: The balance continues through the taste. A really nice piney, bitter taste combatted by the caramel maltiness. It has the hops of a big West Coast IPA, but makes it work with some malt balance as well. Really impressed.

MF: Medium body with a nice amount of carbonation. The sweet and bitter feud in the taste makes it quite drinkable.

O: I really liked this. Typically when I taste a ton of malt in an IPA I'm wondering what went wrong, but this is nothing but tasty. Do yourself a favor and try it!

From 11/05/11 notes. Thanks to yourfragile for sharing this one. Consumed right after their Marble IPA. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a snifter.

a - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with one inch of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Slightly lighter in color than the normal IPA.

s - Smells citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, light tropical fruits, and pine hops. Doesn't smell quite as hoppy and fresh as the IPA did, which is surprising, but it is good. Not as muich tropical fruit either, and more citrus.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, grapefruit, pine hops, fruity malts, and some nice bitterness. More pine hops than the normal IPA.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice bitter bite in the mouth.

o - Overall a nice DIPA. More bitterness and pine hops than the normal IPA, and less tropical fruits, so I prefer the normal Marble IPA, but still worth checking out and something I'd gladly have again.

Got this as an extra from DrMattyB...thanks man!

Pours a pale amber color with a half inch of white head on a gentle pour. Leaves nice lacing down the glass.

Smells like pine hops. No real malt backbone to speak of.

Taste is a strong pine bitterness up front with a bread malt sweetness to counteract the hop bitterness. I tend to like a bigger malt backbone and citrus, really not getting either one.

Mouthfeel is moderate with nice cleansing carbonation.

Overal- 4s across the board. Its a good DIPA, straight up hops with nothing getting in the way.
