Bottled January 28, 2015

pours murky dark orange, one finger head and quite a bit of fine floaties.

Big whiff of grapefruit in the nose and strong. Some lemon too but this is very citrus smelling. some bready malt profile is there too.

Taste follows with hit of citrus hops with generous amount of bitterness but not off-putting. Reminds me a bit of victory dirtwolf. Hops back off some and some cracker malt balances it some. Some candy sugar sweetness and then piney hops thrown in for good measure.

Medium body and medium carb. Sticky and leaves a coating in the mouth. Light bitter aftertaste.

Very well made DIPA. reminiscent of dirtwolf but this has a little bit more bitterness but also more sweetness to balance it out. A little heavier and not as much drinkability though. I'm glad I went for this on my local distributors recommendation.

Grapefruit and citrus rind dominate the taste. Taste is bitter, dry, and slightly oily. An above average imperial IPA, but I have had way better in the style. Would not turn down this beer, nor rush out to get it.

A very good DIPA. Pours an orange/amber color.ostly clear. Medium size white head with good retention and thick lacing on the glass. Strong aroma of citrus hops (grapefruit). Taste is citrus hops and biscuity malt. Very good bitterness.

Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Rich enough for the style. Not at all "boozy" Very drinkable for a hophead. Nice

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an organish copper color with a two finger head and great fingers of lacing all over the glass. A great looking beer. The aroma is of greatfruit hops with earthy hops presen also. The taste is a caramel malt backbone with grapfruit hops, earthy hops and citrus present. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation. The drinkability is good with the alcohol well hidden and the beer being an easy drink. Overall its a solid beer but in a crowded dipa market it is close to the top but not top of class and needs to do more to distinquish itself.

Pours murky and orange with a soft glow in the body of the beer. Decent head of creamy foam that fell pretty fast to some shimmering lace and a thin layer of bubbles on top. Nose is tropical, orange and herbal. Juicy citrus with a good caramel and breaddy malt spine in back. There’s some pine and resin and a faint whiff of soap that doesn’t last. Taste is intense. Grapefruit and tart citrus, pithy then the sweet orange. The malt stayed strong with toasted grain, a little nutty and caramel.The alcohol was warming but not overly present on the palate even though it does show up more and more as it warms. Good oily body and the fruits really lasted throughout the drink next to such a strong malt presence and hop bitter. Finished dry with some bite from the bubbles and a lasting bitter. It even glowed a little in the aftertaste. It drank a little heavy and had a full body but it was packed with flavor that made it really enjoyable.

A shout out to griffeyb for the AWESOME box he sent with this being one of the bottles in it!

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a tulip glass.

A- It pours a deep hazy orange with beautiful lacing sticking from the top of the glass and trailing all the way down.

S- Huge pine and citrus notes. Exactly what I would expect from the style.

T- A rush of hops dominate the first contact with the palate followed by a slightly mellowed sweet after taste. Very nice balance overall.

M- A good amount of carbonation that produces a pleasant tingle with the body to match.

O- A very very good imperial IPA. I feel like I could drink an entire six pack over a crawfish boil even at an ABV of 8.5%. One of the beast I have had.

12 oz bottle, with brewed on dating notched onto the side of the label

Pours orangy amber, with a lite khaki cap staying nicely.

Initially malt is what comes through on the nose, as it warms a bit resiny hops mark their appearance

Rich, dense, boldly crafted DIPA (it's got balls) with more hop resins and finishing hops drying things out. Nicely done and well worth a try
