12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip. Thanks to mizzouguy for this bottle!

Appearance - Hazy and cloudy orange body. Looks like a Berliner Weisse. Very small head, even in a tulip. A little bit of lacing, but not much.

Smell - Citrus and other fruit sweetness. Very pleasant, without being very strong. Has a hint of pine to it, too, but it's very fruity. It's carried by a hint of malt sweetness.

Taste - The hop flavor isn't as distinct the the taste as it is in the aroma. It fades quickly from the first sip. It's there, just not heavy. Instantly there's a bitterness that carries through the midrange and finish. The malt isn't as sweet as the aroma and really manifests itself in a slight biscuit flavor.

Mouthfeel - On par. Good carbonation, despite the appearance. The bitterness is the lingering flavor, not the more pleasant flavors that faded earlier.

Overall - Good, but A? No. A little rough around the edges. There are other local IPAs I'd drink before this.

Thanks to Mike for sending this one my way.

A: The beer pours a golden color with a finger or two of white head.

S: Citrus hops with a mild grassiness to it. A little bit of bready and pale malts along with a little bit of fruit. There is also a light pine note to the aroma.

T: A really nice fruitiness to the flavor. Plenty of citrus, particularly grapefruit and tangerine. Mild grass notes and a decent amount of pine, a moderate bitterness to go with it. Some decent bread flavors round out the beer.

M: Medium in body with a medium to high carbonation.

O: Pretty solid IPA. Nice hoppiness and not really sweet at all.

I bought a can of this at a kiosk in the denver airport. The beer poured a clear golden with no head and no lace. The scent had hints of citrus peel spice. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink for a dipa. There is hints of citrus and pine. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!

The beer is clear and yellow, with a quarter inch or so of white head. The aroma is really pleasant, with a nice bouquet of floral, hop, and subtle citrus notes. The taste is very nice, with an impressively dry, hoppy finish. Medium bodied, the beer sits nicely on the palate. Alcohol content is impressively well hidden. I'd certainly have this again.

12oz bottle into a snifter. The brew appears a clear golden orange color with 2 fingers worth of rich off-white head. It retains with solid powers that paint a full wall of webby lace on the glass.

The aroma is rindy and herbal with hops. The rindy aspect smells like grapefruit mixed with orange zest while the herbal aspects are weedy and almost cheese-like. As it warms up, there is a floral to fruity sweet aspect that emerges somewhat smelling like caramel malt to candy sweetness.

The taste is herbal with hops but boasts a rindy element almost like orange pulp. There is some toasty grain present which offers up some sweetness that accents the fruity aspects of the hops. A touch of alcohol warmth streams across the back of the tongue.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is crisp, clean and easy drinking with a pleasant rounded character and alcohol presence felt without it hindering the experience. Not the best DIPA but worth checking out.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass. Bottle good till October 21st 2011. Off we go.

A slightly cloudy and hazy body of eighteen carat gold is presented with a solid almost perfect uniform even white head. Very slow rising carbonation hard to see through the haze, the beer appears to be moving if not stuck in slow motion. Some visible sickiness when drinking for the lacing.

Bouquet is an abundance of mushy fruit mostly tropical. Mushed bananas, guava, possibly some papaya, mango extremely thick, very impressive.

Taste is, thick double hopped at first but falls slowly into a light sugar tropical fruit sweetness. Absolutely fantastic texture just the perfect thickness without being too sweet. All the nose notes hit, mango, guava, even some green banana, leaving a very pleasant hop bitter.

Tropical fruits are usually not something I even enjoy, but I love them in good drink. This is a great example right here. Fantastic double IPA here.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 oz can on February 8, 2017. Can stamped 05/13/17. Very nice floral aromas and tropical fruit flavors. Clean finish. Highly recommended.

12 ounce bottle, 9/9/11 on the lower left of the label (best before dating?). Pours lighter amber, near clear, off white head, goes to a tiny bubble film and leaves respectable scatered lacing.

Tropical fruit hopped up, pungent and enticing.

Nose carries through onto the palate (suprise), waves of fresh tasting hops, tropical fruits, resins, sweet pinapple, hop lovers delight. Savored every sip of this one, very tasty and well crafted DIPA. How I wish this was distributed to my would be one of my go to brews
