Hazy golden yellow with just the slightest bit of orange hue, and a small white head that sticks around. Leaves a good lacing.

Nice citrusy and floral hop aroma, with just a tad of pine and a small bready malt base if I try hard. Very hop forward, which is something I love in IPA's, especially doubles.

Complex hop combo that is much more about the flavor and aroma than bitterness. Plenty of the citrusy, fruity, floral and piney hops all meshing together perfectly in a super hop forward but not a crazy smack in the face way. Getting the bready, cracker malts which blends really nicely too.

Moderate body and carbonation with a very creamy smooth overall feel. Not heavy despite the size. Very nice.

Very nice DIPA - way more mellow than I expected from the aroma, but totally works. You'd never guess this was such a huge beer, considering how smooth and easy drinking it is, but you know it's a DIPA because of the complex hop explosion. Highly recommended.

Appearance: Poured a clear golden orange with a fluffy white head, very fine bubbles and a sticky lace.

Smell: There's a strong hop presence, but the bitterness of the scent is being battled by something very sweet - this is probably due to the Myrcene from the hops. It's a civil war between hops and sweet fruits.

Taste: The beginning tickles the tongue until the back of the throat is kicked with sweet fruits and floral tastes; the middle rolls the flavor back onto the tongue with a sharp but gentle bitterness; the end lingers into a calm bitterness and tasteful remembrance of the aroma.

Mouthfeel: The beginning kicks on with seem heat. The carbonation is a tad strong, but it is still a smooth guzzle, semi-thick - medium bodied.

Overall: My friend and I like to call this the 'Urban Elephant' - referring to Odell's (wonderful) IPA. Overall, Odell did very well with this DIPA. It's a nice change - like moving from the country to the city (or vice versa.) There's a raw power in its hop content.
