Pours a orange hue with a nice thick white head that dissipates but not completely. Really released the aromas very nicely.

Smell is of citrus, grapefruit in particular and pine. Slightly sweet tinge to the aroma.

Taste follows the nose with notes of grapefruit and a touch of piney bitterness on the finish. There is a sweetness to the beer that is thankfully cut by the mild hop bitterness on the finish. Balancing the hops and citrus flavors is a nice malt undertone that is never overly noticeable, but provides a balance and depth to the beer.

Feel was mildly carbonated and very drinkable. However, I think this beer would benefit from a bit more carbonation as it lacks a crispness to it that would compliment the flavor profile.

Overall a very nice DIPA - my second 2nd Shift beer and a much better offering. We all had a laugh over the juvenile name on this one. Really?

Pours a golden orange color with ample amounts of chalk white head. The smell is floral with a bit of pine and citrus. The taste is sweet at first but then you get hit with a huge pine flavor but not overpowering, very easy to drink. The mouthfeel is medium with less carbonation than one might think looking at the beer. It works though. Overall this is a very enjoyable Imperial IPA.
