This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some stringy lacing sticking to the glass. The smell had a big sweet burst of citrus rind and pulp over top of floral features and gently allowing a light caramel malt delicately balancing. The taste was mainly bittersweet citrus hops and giving off a nice dry bitter citrus rind - like aftertaste. There’s no finish in this one. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping to sessionable quality about it. Carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. The bitterness level is there and good as a DIPA. Overall, I like this one as a DIPA and definitely recommend for DIPA fans.

Love it. Do not care about the lack of smells. Doesn't smell bad and tastes and feels amazing. I would drink this everyday.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of citrus, mango, guava. Taste is citrus, resin, tropical fruits, malts are present, moderate bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer worth trying.

Look: Orangeish and pretty clear with a thin white head.
Smell: Subtle smell of hops and citrus.
Taste: Nice bitter and cirtus flavors that come in a lot stronger than I expected based on the nose.
Feel: Medium carb and it drinks very well for 8%
Overall: A very enjoyable beer. It would be nice if there was more to experience on the nose, but everything else is on point.

From a can, pours as an almost clear gold with an off-white thin head. Aroma is subtle of hops and indistinct citrus. Taste is all bitter hops and citrus (bit like tart grapefruit) sweet caramelly malt and perhaps dark fruit. Overall, really pretty solid.

An orange colored beer with a thin soapy head. A little bit boozy flavor, odd sugary flavored after taste similar to sprees or Pixie sticks, kind of ruined the beer for really odd lingering flavor.

Road 2 Ruin poured a light copper colour and looked like honey. This beer did not have anything on the nose other than it smelled like grains and beer, in general. The bitter hops were subdued. This was a balanced IPA, malty and with a smooth finish.

Clear, slightly hazy amber with a big white head. Good retention and lacing.
The aroma is muted, but I get some candied grapefruit peel, orange marmalade, biscuit malt, caramel, pine, and a little onion.
The taste is big orange and grapefruit upfront. Bittersweet orange flesh and orange peel with a bit of juicy red grapefruit flesh. Hints of cantaloupe and papaya. You get some caramel and biscuit malt sweetness in the middle, a solid backbone. There's a substantial pine sap bitterness. Finishes dry with lingering piney bitterness.
Feels medium-full, medium-high carbonation, moves pretty quickly on the palate, and drinks easily coupled with a dry finish.
Overall, a solid West Coast style DIPA. Tastes quite malty for a moment but the dry finish and big citrus flavor keeps it drinking easily.
