Pours a deep orange almost copper color with a nice 2 finger bubbly head that leaves some lacing on the pint glass. Aromas are full of citrus fruits with a nice malt and hop backbone. Plenty of oranges and grapefruit. Taste is fairly alcoholic but has a nice bitter finish. Some floral notes as well. Mouthfeel is pretty thick for an IPA with good carbonation. Overall this is a an enjoyable IPA. Well done.

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.

I really like this DIPA. Very well balanced, just a touch of citrus. Very drinkable in spite of its 9.00 ABV.

review #600

pours a deep copper, fairly clear, with about an inch or so of thick creamy head. tons of lacing and nice retention.

nice citrus bomb, with a domination of orange and sweet grapefruit. lighter hints of tangerine and pine resin.

still heavy on the citrus with more of an emphasis on the tangerine and pine resin. pungent and bitter with a faint sweetness. nice malty body. ABV is hidden well.

very full and thick. a bit of a mild carbonation but with a hint of bite.

quite good, a great DIPA. love everything about it
