Look - Soft orange coloring.
Smell - A nice fruity one.
Taste - The taste is a slight taste of fruit and that is followed by a kick of hops.
Feeling - A smooth alcohol flow to a burst of fruits.
Overall - It's a pretty good drink that I will happily drink again if I am at a bar that has it again.

Pours a honey gold with a solid finger of foamy head that settles to a cap leaving layers of sticky lacing. Light citrus a pine aroma. Taste follows nose wth a bit of bitterness at the end. Smooth and satisfying. Yum. Yum

On-tap 6/5/2016 at Bukowski Tavern in Boston, MA, served in a nonic half-pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, some berries, floral hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong but not over-powering burst of floral hops followed by mildly sweet flavors of citrus and berries. The malt character is hearty and brings a very good balance. The berry flavor is much more subdued than I expected. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very good beer to drink for a long time.

32oz growler from Beer'd. Pours a translucent pale golden color with a half inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is, like the name indicates, loaded with berries. Strawberries, cherries, raspberries, and some citrus along with some piney notes. The taste is lots of Mosaic hop flavor. Berries but with some herbal and piney hops. Boozey with a floral/herbal finish. Very dry. Medium body. Overall, another solid Imperial IPA from Beer'd worth seeking out.

Golden in color and transparent. White frothy/foamy head.

Aroma: fruity, earthy, floral notes.

Taste: mild bitterness (subdued), piney, lightly sweet, earthy hop finish, light to medium mouthfeel, deceptive, you would never guess this is 9.10% ABV. Unique imo. Unlike the vast majority of DIPAs out there. I was pleasantly surprised. Great lacing as well.

Golden color and clear. Decent lace on the glass from the minor head.

Fresh but very mild aroma. Good balance--smells like a pale ale despite its DIPA designation.

More earthy than most, this beer is "dark" flavor-wise. The alcohol is understated but notable. The hop is also low for the style. The body and carbonation are as one would expect, with a bit of chewiness.

The look is a yellow with some orange shining through. Incredibly balanced and smooth. Great nose that is floral and honey and citrus. The floral hops shine. An excellent beer!!!
