I can say nothing negative here. This is one amazing beer. High ABV, sweet smooth flavors, the right amount of hops. I'm in love.

Served in a tulip with my awesome girlfriend. Big thanks to thezoobrew for sitting in line for this 10 day old masterpiece!

Appearance: Deep orange, amber. Good lacing, thin layer of foam.

Smell: Mango, pineapple, peaches, and a little pine with a sweet, rich caramel in the background. Seriously one of the best double IPAs I've ever smelled. The rich, bright, tropical fruit aromas are stronger than any I've ever smelled, and they're backed by a rich but subtle sweetness. Just a touch of alcohol to remind you that this is a strong one.

Taste: Bright, incredibly juicy tropical hops, very balanced bitterness, and a rich backbone of sweetness. I'm not a fan of sweet/malty IPAs, but the balance here is fantastic. The fruity, bitter hops are perfectly balanced by the darker caramelly sugar of the malt. Deliciously complex, but not palate-exhausting, this not a how-hoppy-can-you-handle double IPA.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium body, great carbonation for the style. Thicker than a pale ale, maybe more comparable to an American barleywine.

Overall: Incredibly balanced and tasty, this beauty of a DIPA is bound to be well-received. The perfect bitter-meets-sweet with a tropical fruit complexity balance. Truly one of the best beers I've had this year, maybe ever. Highly recommended.

Picked up fresh from the fine people at the Warren Store. Great people.

Pours an opaque orange color with a small bubbly head.

Smells amazing. Definitely a hop forward beer, which is exactly what I love.

Taste is even better. I am picking up on Amarillo and Chinook hops. As it warms, the beer gets a fresh lemony scent. Tropical/Citrus fruits are definitely making a nice presence.

The mouthfeel is incredible. Talk about smooth. For this beer being 11.1%, I am blown away.

Overall this is a world class DIPA. I am hesitant with beers that are this high in percentage, But Sean has hidden the ABV perfectly. The taste is just absolutely amazing. I was lucky enough to grab a bottle for this year's brew. I wish it was available more often!

The aroma has aggressive leafy hops, grapefruit, and green pine. There's a hint of sweetness and alcohol.

The flavor follows of this awesome green pine with some grapefruit and lemon. There's a medium plus bready malt without an excessive sweetness. There's a bitterness on the end of resinous pine. The alcohol is extremely well hidden. It reminds me of Alpine Exponential Hoppiness.

One of the best double digit ABV hoppy brews.
