Pours an almost clear yellow with a nice white head that fade quickly to a ring.
Citrus and stone fruit aroma. Taste follows with a spicy, bitter finish. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. In a world flooded with DIPA's this one will be erased from my memory soon, I didn't even like the can.

Best before 05-02-16, so i'd say it's fairly fresh. Sure smells like it, right after popping the cap.
Pours hazy orange, building up a rich two finger and a half fluffy white head that doesn't rush anywhere. Later on a thin cap remains and a very sticky lace.
There's a perfect marriage of citrus and pine in the smell, all atop quite a lot of caramel, with some sweet tropical fruit (papaya, pineapple, faint lychee and mango) and orchard fruit (apricot, peach, pear). This should be great.
Huge pineapple in the front, probably the clearest i've found in a beer, followed by tons of bitter citrus, like grapefruit and lemon peel, getting sweeter in a flash second, with tangerines, pomelo, limes, also some peach and perfumey mango. Nice caramel helps the sweetness, also some honey with quite a lot of floral notes. Big green notes, like pine resin, weed, hop oils, a huge fresh leafiness follows, and sweeps away any sweetness, giving room to a huge, dry, spicy bitterness.
Medium body and carbonation, creamy, almost oily. Fitting for such a rich heavy IIPA. Aftertaste is a hop nuke fallout, leaving nice fruitiness and big bitter green notes. You don't have time to feel any alcohol.
A rollercoaster, with a big surprising complexity, but in the end perfectly balanced, great flavours, incredible hops.

this is probably a better beer than the ratings i am giving it, at least according to everyone else, but for me, it lacks the omnipollo magic, which i have experienced in all of their beers to date before this one, and its there here too, trying to bust though a bigger malt profile than is necessary in terms of caramel notes, or maybe too long of a boil where some sugar caramelization occurred, i dont know for sure, but it cant get out. it also cant get out from behind a brick wall of bitterness that starts mid palate and lingers for half an hour. the hop complexion of the beer is otherwise awesome, but its masked a bit more than i would like it to be here. there is a peach or nectarine juicy character to the hops, and it comes out right before the finish in a huge wave of crashing carbonation, stirring up a turbid mix of malt residuals, strange new wave euro yeast, and oils that coat the palate and then disappear. i could drink a bunch of these, but i feel like i would pay for it. the mouthfeel is its best asset i think. if this were a single ipa with a scaled back malt base and more emphasis on late kettle timing with the same dosage, it would be a vastly superior beer in my mind. the bitterness is a distraction and the alcohol leaks through just a bit. that said, a treat to get to try another beer from these guys, who are absolute awesome as on outfit on the whole.

An excellent IPA, and one with a little different flavor profile as well. Pours beautifully- a classic IPA color and head with excellent lacing. Smells a bit grainy, but that isn't reflected in the taste. There are also nice grassy, herbal, and citrus aromas. The taste starts very herbal, and a bit grassy, transitions to citrus, and ends with a big blast of bitter pine. There is enough malt to support the hops, but not make it sweet. A great IPA.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellowish orange in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high off white head that died down, consistently leaving a thin head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderately strong aromas of grapefruit are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of orange citrus and grapefruit along with hints of pine and a moderate amount of bitterness. The orange flavors linger through the finish, when slight hints of alcohol also appear.
M: It feels medium-bodied, crisp and a little dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a rather bold IPA that packs in a lot of citrusy aromas and flavors along with a substantial amount of hop bitterness. The alcohol is mostly well masked from the taste.

Kind of your typical IPA. Nothing special or new to stand out. By no means a bad beer, but with the glut of better beers on the market for cheaper, not one I'll be returning to soon.

A: Pours a slightly hazy apricot to peach in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some orange + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to large patch of thick film in the center of the beer with an extremely thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit hops with some lighter aromas of tropical/mango hops.

T: Upfront there is a light amounts of malts with hints of caramel sweetness that is followed by moderate to strong flavors of citrus/orange, citrus/grapefruit, tropical/mango, and pine hops. Light to moderate flavors of bitterness which lingers. Very light hints of alcohol in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with light amounts of dryness.

O: There are rather intense flavors and aromas of hops with fairly aggressive amounts of bitterness and a hint of booze making this beer not the easiest to drink. Very enjoyable and one I would like to have again.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Deep opaque amber orange, with a little bit of rising carbonation, and also a bit noticeable. Head is relatively small, manages at least slightly larger than two fingers, and has very good retention. Soft white in color, with some creamy character and island puck appearances, with ring like lacing as well. Decent looking IPA.

Aroma takes a turn for hop bomb, but manages excellent balance with some distinct characters. Creamy vanilla aromas and mild sweet malts, with sensing amounts of caramel and icing sugar. Hop angle goes for subtlety with slightly dank, slightly juiced but with a tea like earthy quality. Inviting, not large, but also buried.

The first taste is quite surprising as a quick biscuit malt hits the palate at first. This is quickly knocked down with a sharp hop cutting through nicely in the middle, juiced but also pine and very dry like in flavor. Lots of sharp tea and similar qualities with a very light body passing over the tongue. Finishes with a nice mix of powdered dry grain malt and flour, with a large hop bent, that accents much of the tea and dry herbal angles present. Big leafy herbs and slight orange on the finish as well, just a touch of toast in a style that doesn't exhude malt character which is a nice surprise.

Real interesting take on a large DIPA for a change. Not mind blowing, but definitely in a unique realm all it's own.

Bottled dated 7/13/17, meaning it was bottled on 7/13/15; drank on 10/17/15 in a tulip glass; not sure I would want this beer to age an extended period of time

Dark orange color with some haze and two finger head. Smells of grapefruit and orange rind with malt, spice and the slightest scent of rose petal. Medium bodied with fine beads of carbonation leading to a creamy texture. Taste of sweet grapefruit, citrus rind, peach, burnt caramel, vanilla, and spice. The fruit sweetness and bitter hops are nicely balanced, and the bitterness lingers for some time.

Hazed golden orange, 2 fingers white head, lots of lace. Smell is a of grassy citrus and pulpy grapefruit, orange, fairly substantial malt back bone, pineapple on the back end. Taste is also earthy-citrusy hops, lots of grapefruit and orange flavours, fairly bitter with only a bit of malt in the periphery, dry with a tropical fruit and citrus aftertaste. Lightly carbonated, full body with an oily-slick drying feel. Really quite good, a very easy drinking DIPA, one of the better euro IPA's I have had in a while.

11.2 oz bottle, best before 8/23/14, poured into a teku

A- A slightly hazy amber/orange color with a four finger fluffy white head.

S- Piney, some earth spices, slightly dank, somewhat grassy, some tropical fruits, citrus.

T- Some citrus upfront, caramel malts, some pepper/earth spices, dank bitter piney hops in the finish.

S- Smooth, medium body, carbonation could be higher.

O- I would really like to try a fresh bottle of this. I did have the Stillwater remix and enjoyed it more, but I feel that it could be because it was fresher.

16 oz. can

Pours cloudy hazy amber gold orange with a creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like sweet melon, candied caramelized malt, orange, mango skin, guava, peach, white grapefruit, pineapple, pine sap resin, with dank floral earthy herbal grass. Taste follows with candied caramely light toasty malt, sweet melon, orange citrus, mango, guava, peach, grapefruit, pineapple, some orchard fruit, berry, pine sap resin, with dank floral earthy herbal grass. Feels juicy, medium bodied with a creamy slick mouthfeel going down, with smooth moderate low carbonation. Overall a really nice, slightly sweet and malty, yet juicy imperial IPA with a load of hops that aren't too bitter.

From a growler, pours a mostly clear orange-gold. About a finger of foam leaves spotty lacing. Smells and tastes like a classic West Coast IIPA. Lots of grapefruit and pine. Decently bitter finish. Just a super clean, delicious beer.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 6/24/2015. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity of bright citrus/tropical/grassy hops and light-moderate malt balance; with great strength. Taste of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of bright citrus/tropical/grassy hops with moderate malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy, smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent DIPA. All around great complexity of bright citrus/tropical/grassy hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
