Bottle to tulip, the appearance was a semi-clear burnt orange color with a small white finger’s worth of foamy head. Left some spotty lace. The aroma had some sweet tropical fruity sugars, soft sweet citrus to bitter, light pine, subtle dried wood and ended with a little bit of danky sweet onion. The flavor started sweet and roamed into the danky sweet to light bitter. Spicy and earthy components slide in for balance. Nicely blended aftertaste filling the finish the same way. The palate was medium bodied with a good sipping quality about it. Good carbonation and the ABV felt appropriate. Overall, now that’s a West coast styled DIPA!

Pours a slightly cloudy, orange/honey hue. Some sticky lace left behind by the near two-finger width, fluffy off-white head that holds retention well. Pretty tropical fruit and hop forward up front on smell: grapefruit, guava, pineapple, along with pine and caramel from the malt.

I actually pick up the Nelson hops pretty heavy in this one, with a clovy, tobacco chewiness and strong pine resin presence. Overripe grapefruit, orange peel, guava as well. A slight earthiness followed by a wave of heavy malt backbone. Slightly creamy with a lingering bitterness on the tongue. Alcohol covered well.

Overall this was a decent DIPA. A little one-note but this was more hop-forward than malt-forward in my eyes despite prior reviews. Maybe I was just graced with a good batch? Who knows. But I feel this is deserving of a better rating.

Solid double IPA, very flavorful and refreshing. Not too overpowering.

Not really sure this is an ipa lol it taste kind of like a slightly hoppy doppelbock. I'm not sure what they were going for... not bad, but they really missed the style mark.

Poured into a pint glass.

3.75 A: Moderately hazed amber orange color. Three fingers of pillowy beige head. Retention is about average and lots of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Big citrusy component in this - tons of mango, orange, papaya. Rich caramel and toffee maltiness. Grapefruit and some pine.

3.5 T: Like the nose, big citrus with a strong malt backbone. Fruit trio mentioned above, caramel and toffee. Unfortunately this has some cooked vegetables in there, which their IPA also had.

3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Slightly creamy and smooth enough.

3.25 D: It tastes pretty good overall, but I have to dock it some points due to the off flavors.
