A- Light and bright. The beer is a clear glowing amber. The head is lackluster which is a bit of a let down.

S- This already smells like another awesome midwest dipa from the brewery that helped define this type of dipa. Big tropical fruit bombs, and that's how I like it. Marmalade, pineapple, mango, and cotton candy. Pine is there but is secondary to exotic fruits.

T- The snell is much better than the taste, which unfortunate. Tropical fruit is still the star but it isn't as well blended as the aroma. Copious pine and a splash of fussel alcohol get in the way. This beer is pretty damn bitter, considering how fruity it is.

M- Medium bodied with a nicely subdued carbonation. Its quite resins with a long lingering bitter finish.

Bottle into Three Floyds nonic. Orange yellow color with tiny white collar, no lacing and nothing to really retain. Smells a bit on the malty side, very basic pale malts. Some resinous pine, alcohol, astringent hops. Any aroma hops have faded. Taste is very bitter but not too flavorful. Slightly grassy, alcohol, bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium to high carbonation and a medium body. I have a feeling this beer is old. Three Floyds, DATE YOUR BOTTLES. Or, even worse, if this beer is fresh, its one of the most boring double IPAs I have had in a while. Drinkable, but definitley not memorable.

A: Pours a hazy orange with two fingers of white head that recedes into a thin ring with a little lacing.

S: Some citrusy notes up front--mostly grapefruit with some pineapple. Pine, grass, and earthy aromas follow.

T: Pine dominates the palate here. There are some grapefruit and grassy notes as well, but mostly it's dry, resiny pine. The finish is bitter with a light alcohol burn. The bitterness lingers well after each sip.

M: Medium body with mid-high carbonation that accents the bitter pine notes well.

O: An alright DIPA. It's not bad, but it's very overpriced ($13 for a bomber where I got it) and not nearly worth it. It's too bitter and piny for my tastes.
