Taste: woody, spiced resin notes with tropical hops. Dry hopped and slightly boozy nose. Orange/Amber color, mostly clear, with foamy white head and ringed lattice. Medium/full body. Dry it is. 85 IBUs

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a nice looking hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Lotsa nice foamy lacing stuck finely to the glass. The smell had a sweet sticky grapefruit-esque leading to fine subtle juicy citrus and decent underscore of pine to balance. The taste was pure bittersweet and refined to a sly subtle sticky citrusy conglomeration of pine. The aftertaste was mainly bitter that lead to a slightly dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body. 9.5% - really? Maybe closer when its fresh, not necessarily now. Still good and has a decent substantial carbonation to pound my tongue into submission. Overall, pretty good DIPA that I would have again.

Another great draft at the Capital Ale House (VA). A snifter glass

Appearance- A bright gold color with close to two fingers of off-colored head. The head slowly dissipated and a nice lacing slowly followed.

Smell- Citrus and floral notes combined with a nice malt scent. The alcohol is definitely there but nicely blended.

Taste- The citrus from the tropical fruits tries to cut the bitterness. There a sweet taste like caramel or candied fruit toward the middle of the pour. The bitter notes mixed with the fruit taste was great.

Mouthfeel- An interesting stickiness with medium carbonation. Finished with a bold fullness

Overall- The sweetness and bitterness mix for a great West Coast double IPA. The alcohol really hits toward the end but this one was extremely drinkable. My favorite beer from Firestone Walker

Big bouquet of juicy tropical fruit - mango, pineapple, grapefruit. Light amber, crystal clear with a thick, airy, egg white head and excellent retention.
Bright, clean flavours, lightly fruity and a touch of toffee, with a super dry, bitter finish that isn't too aggressive for a DIPA. Lingers on the palate, drawing you in for more, and since the high abv is is nowhere to be seen, you're unlikely to resist (but it does catch up to you!). Medium body and medium/light carbonation, full and buttery mouthfeel.
This is a beauty, I'm usually wary of intense malt sweetness with DIPAs, and this one is just perfectly balanced.
