look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Believe I had this for the first time at the Bistro dipa fest. Or was it at Churchill's? Or both? Regardless, pours a darkened yellow/gold color with a thin 1/4" white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy, not super pungent. Grain mostly, maybe a little bit of Galaxy(?) hops? I saw that because of a slight pineapple aspect to the nose.

Taste, more grain, dry malt body mouth feel, bitterness is in the 60ibu range I believe. Seems like some C hops for bittering possibly, getting grapefruit out of it moreso than pineapple that was in the nose. More honey malt than crystal malt (if any). Its decent, hides the alcohol ok, but there is an almost acidic aspect to it.

12oz can served in a tulip. ????SIS DATE 11/15/17 is on the bottom, but I can't read it to know if it's best by or packaged on.

Pours a clear dark golden, maybe a light amber, with a medium sized head and a fair amount of carbonation. Head fades, leaving medium thickness of lacing. Smell is muted -- I can barely detect anything. A little grain and a little pineapple.

Taste is clean, bitter, and straightforward. I don't get a lot of fruitiness -- mostly a west coast style piney bitterness which is enjoyable and simple.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and very dry. Overall, solid beer, but not flashy.

An amazing double IPA coming out of Vista, CA. Mother Earth delivers with this citrusy, smooth, hoppy beer. Canned 10/21/17. Notes of tropical fruits, mild malty notes from the grain bill and a great after taste on your palette. Must try fresh.

One of the best DIPAs I've had. Huge Hop profile with a smoooth crisp after taste.

Poured from a 12oz into a speiglau ipa glass.

Look is a lovely orange amber with a big white head.

Aroma is biscuit malt and a pithy orange.

Taste is full or lemon peel orange notes and a nice caramel malt backbone.

Delicious beer.

Poured from 12 oz can into glass mug. Colour is a nice orange/amber with a thin tan head. Smells of strong hops and citrus rind. Taste much the same as the aroma with what I detect are berries. There is also some pine crepping through as with most West Coast style IPAs. Mouthfeel is great, goes down a little too good. Thank you I'll have another. Prost!

Pours a coppery gold with large rough head that leaves some lace. Nose is some tropical canned fruit, frankness, and citrus rind. Taste is more towards citrus rind with a good bitterness and full malt backbone. Nice full mouthfeel as well. Overall, a very good IIPA.

Pours a frosted orange with two fingers of white head. Head formation is foamy. Retention is so-so for a DIPA. Lacing is bubbly and extensive, at least at the start of the glass. Halfway through the glass, and the lacing starts to trail off. Aroma is driven by hops, with specific notes of resin, fruity, and a hint of pine. Flavor profile opens up lightly with notes of resin and fruit hops. Hop notes grow, becoming much more pronounced half way through the flavor profile. PIne shows up as an additional note when the flavor profile heats its peak. Mouth feel is smooth, with a filling, medium consistency. Overall, a solid DIPA. Nothing special, but certainly nothing terrible.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

Out of a sampling of numerous IPAs and double IPAs the last week all highly rated with most rated better than hop diggity im perplexed. This beer is easily, not even close the best of the bunch. Smells amazing of mangoes, dank resiny pine, papaya, blueberries. Taste is similar with a delicious bready sweet malt. No bitter aftertaste. The finish is dry and smooth. Great stone fruit flavor in taste. Incredible DIPA.

Clear golden with a touch of orange. Two fingers of white head that lasts about ten minutes. Not much lace.
Smell is dank herbal funky hops. Some bread crust malt.
Taste is dank bitter herbal citrus pithy hops. Malts are present but not up to reigning in the bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium to full with average carbonation. Finish is long dry and mostly bitter.
Overall a tasty and enjoyable beer.

Just picked up the new cans. Pours a pretty dark orange with nice head and no lacing. Smell is wonderful. Orange, grapefruit and pine. Balanced tropical fruit, bitter hops and slight malt taste. I really like this.
