18 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Pours a golden amber with a decent amount of carbonation that fades quickly to a nice bubble. Very little to no head or lacing. Has a very strange odor. Maybe it's just my bottle, but I can't say it's great. The pine notes still come out. Tastes sweeter than the average IPA. Not quite as hoppy as I would have liked, but still pleasant. Goes down very smooth. Tastes of citrus, pine and some sort of sugar, but not malty. Overall a decent IPA, I won't hold the odor as a killer, because I suspect something was up with my bottle.

The beer comes in a copper color, a dark gold.

There is a fantastic aroma with rich juicy peach, mango, orange.

The flavor hits with lots of tropical fruit in the front. Then a medium bready malt, but then the end is huge. There's pine, and then it becomes an almost offensive astringent grapefruit pith.

There's a good amount of malt behind this beer, but also extremely hoppy and bitter. It's a bit of booze in there, but the finish is a bit much for me. Still a fine beer.

A-Pours a clearer, glowing ruby orange. Modest sized head. Good, consistent lacing. Just a nice looking brew.

S-Smell is heavy on booze, juicy citrus hops and a fistful of pine. It is a bold aroma that isn't too complex.

T-A large pine hop assault. There is also a juicy, candied citrus flavor that leads into the sweet caramel maltiness and a fruity yeast flavor. There are hints of other juicier, hop derived fruit flavors. Booze is clear.

M-A sipper. My pour went down slowly. Its plenty bitter and plenty hot but it just kinda works.

O/D-A big old' tongue bully. This take on the DIPA isn't my favorite but I thought this was an above average brew all things considered.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

a: cloudy dirty golden, some head with decent retention and lacing
S: strong orange-citrus notes
T: sweet malt and orange forward notes, like a creamsicle, sort of. Melds into a dryer end, but in a very subtle way...
M: up front some carbonation and the sweetness mentioned dominates. The subtleness mentioned (in taste) is a dry mossy feel early, ending in a malt-coated, orange tinged, dryness that isn't overpowering, but rather a nice surprise for me.
O: Very enjoyable beer, but with some of its malty sweetness, you have to be in the mood for this beer. It's a good middle-of-flight beer.

Pours with a small head of white foam on a clear, copper colored body. The head settles fairly quickly and lease excellent lace. An aroma of pungent pine and grapefruit. Sweet, thick malt up front with notes of caramel and pine. Medium thick body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet finish. Definitely a malt forward DIPA, but the hop character is still nice.
