This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving some messy lacing sliding down the sides of the glass. The smell had a big luscious sweet citrus and as it warmed, it spread to a pineapple, lemon, lime, grapefruit, mango and starfruit. The taste was fruity sweet and eloquently graced my taste buds with a fresh cut grassiness to balance. A lingering sweet citrus aftertaste leads to a big refreshing finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for its style and for me. Bittersweet harshness rolled over my tongue. Overall, very good DIPA and probably my favorite one by this brewery.

Here's a big brew that came a long way to my fridge. It starts off great - beautiful in the glass. All yellow and very nice and foamy. The lace is superb. The great, all hoppy and piney, if a bit weak for the style.

The taste is imperial. It's a malty IPA, with loads of hops but they are dominated by the malts. I have no idea how old this sample is. It could be older and the hops are subdued. But it is nicely balanced.

The aftertaste is sweet and piney. I've had other beers from this brewer and this may be the best. Recommended as a sweeter, more balanced double AIPA.

Poured from bottle.

(L) The color is medium golden with dissipating 1/4" white head and a bit of lacing.
(A) The aroma is a little grapefruit on the nose. Also getting some floral and piney hops.
(T) The taste is similar to aroma except more floral and pine than citrus. Just a touch of grapefruit.
(F) The feel is medium with a dryish finish.

West coast IPA. Expected it to be more hop heavy given the style and ABV. Very drinkable, though not a knock-out. No date on bottle. Maybe would've been better fresher.

On tap. Look is orange and clear. Smell is light fruity hops and a bit of spice. Taste is balanced hop and malt, but neither punches. Feel is ok, abv well hidden. Overall an unremarkable double. A friend had a taste and called this the bud light of double IPAs. I think that may fit
