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.

This has skyrocketed into my top ten. It's everything I like in an IPA, let alone an imperial IPA. Super juicy, lots of tropical fruit, just enough malt to give it a tiny bit of heft, no booziness at all. It's just a really great burst of flavor and I highly recommend it.

Pours clear orange with a frothy white head. Smell is just insane. Full of dankness, tropical fruits and some slight pepper. Taste follows with just the right amount of malt. This is like Boo Koo on steroids. Seems like they tweaked this recipe lately, seeing as it's now 8.3% and went from using FF and Nelson to Summit, Belma, Citra, and Mosaic. An interesting combination of hops that really works out well. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Good carbonation. Nothing spectacular here but does the job. Overall an extremely good DIPA. This stuff was canned two days ago and I'm floored.

Poured a clear amber-orange body with a half finger of thick, bubbly white head and abundant yeast that settles to the bottom of the glass. Overall impression of appearance is of a very nice DIPA, brought down slightly by the large amount of visible, chunky yeast. Scents of tropical fruit, leading into tangerine flesh and peel, grapefruit zest, grassy hops, moderate amounts of pine resin, subtle hints of dank, earthy, vegetal hop aromas and solid supporting aromas of biscuity pale malt and light alcohol. As it sits it becomes dominated by dank, vegetal aromas, adding another layer of complexity by reversing the aroma profile entirely. Overall impression of aroma is of a very nice, bright, fruity West Coast style DIPA that is wonderfully hop-forward and that then shifts character as it sits to become a different, yet still excellent, example of a West Coast DIPA. Flavor begins hoppy, with notes of grapefruit peel, pine resin, white pepper, spicy hops and light amounts of tangerine and tropical fruit. Middle picks up further resinous, piney hop notes, as well as some grassy hops and white pepper and notes of grapefruit peel and semi-sweet juniper berries, as well as very light notes of tangerine flesh. Finish continues these flavors, with white pepper, pine resin and grapefruit peel dominating, while a nice spicy alcohol is present at light levels. Aftertaste is bitter and hoppy with notes of spicy, white pepper hops, pine resin and grapefruit peel. Overall impression of flavor is of a very nice DIPA. It is very hoppy, but in a pleasing way and with a wealth of flavors. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with medium-high carbonation and a slick feel with a light alcohol burn. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a very good DIPA, no problems. Overall this is an excellent example of a West Coast DIPA. It showcases the aromas and flavors of the typical hop bill of the style wonderfully and combines with mouthfeel to enhance those flavors. A very good example of a very saturated style.

I cannot say enough good things about this DIPA.
It is beautiful in coloring. A burnt orange almost, but still very bright. The head starts off thick and shortly gives way to a tiny ivory ring with nice lacing. Starts off tasting mildly sweet, an obvious strong hop presence and an after notes of spice and citrus. Extremely drinkable and enjoyable.

Excellent appearance for a 2IPA, aroma moderate hop base. Taste is ideal balance of malt/ hops, body just right.

An extremely underrated beer, and what a treat it is. A very impressive DIPA. Juicy, tropical flavor, well balanced with just the right amount of "hoppy" flavor, and no booze taste like poorly brewed DIPAs often have. It's really a great brew with excellent flavor! Excellent beer just below world class in my opinion.

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.
