One word: DELICIOUS.

High in alcohol content.

Color is deep orange, with a good head (not extremely thick and creamy, and not too thin and soda like).

Full of flavor, which ranges from bitter to honey sweet.

It's amazing how they managed to make something taste so bitter yet so sweet. It tastes extremely hoppy at first, like most IPAs, and then the after taste is of a very flowery honey.

This is a five star beer, hands down.

delicious!!!!!! VERY VERY VERY excellent example of a double IPA. very hoppy and straight forward. This (thankfully) isn't a malt bomb like Southern Tier Un Earthly or 2xIPA. you can actually taste the hops (unlike southern tier malt bombs) not to hate on southern tier however, it's just that their beers I mentioned are extremely sweet and malty. This one however is very hoppy and bitter. Just how I like :) . Extremely smooth. (Just had a whole 6 pack because I couldn't help myself and I rarely do this). It really is that easy and smooth to drink. Thanks Lagunatis, for making every beer I have drank from you just as delicious as the last one I've tasted. This one some what reminds me of Undercover Investigation Shutdown DIPA, but is a bit more bitter. (In a good way)
