Very odd ipa, don't know what to think of this one.
Rare taste at the back end too.

Poured into IPA glass. It pours a clear orange-amber with a one-finger milk-white head and lacing. It has a nice dank smell with an aroma of tangerine, pine, and hops. You can really taste the tangerine/orange peel. It begins quite sweet and fruity but ends with a lot of hoppy bitterness. It's a really nice balance of sweet and bitter. It's a medium-bodied ale with moderate carbonation and it hides its 10% ABV quite well. Overall, it's a well-crafted and enjoyable IPA. Like Yin, it's not as good as some of its famous competitors but it is solid and worth trying.

Poured from a bottle dated "302-15", dark gold with a white foamy head, smell was really dank right from the pour suggesting something unique, but settled down just as the taste reflects. Some malt, citrus, and quite a bit of hoppy resin to finish the gulp, leaving a dark sour tone on the back of the tongue. Nice! Actually turned out to be quite a nice change of pace and nicely represented a well thought out balance between the different attributes. A genuinely good, strong, drinkable beer.

This double IPA falls with the tangerine citrus end of the spectrum, with a kind of black tea, biscuit thing going on. It reminds me a bit too much of an amber ale in flavor profile so I'm not likely to want more than a serving of it. The booze comes across a bit strong in the bitterness, as if I had a shot of vodka not too long ago. I was hoping I'd like this more. I certainly like the concepts, marketing and the design of the brewery.
