Pours dark orange amber with 1/4 inch head with tight lacing. Very faint aroma hides what is about to come (drank from dogfish head IPA glass). Big pine and grapefruit peel bite your tongue and a sticky tingly finish. The flavor hangs out on your tongue, man. Almost a cigar and scotch experience as this slightly warms and opens up (granted, I'm staring off into the horizon reviewing this)... Great 2ipa from 18th street.

Thank you so very much, FFFJunkie, you are awesome. Poured into my Surly glass at 50 degrees. The beer had a massive 4 finger head with great retention. The head is frothy creamy, airy, and billowy. The head slowly dissipates and beautiful lacing is left on the glass. The color of the beer is medium plus amber color with copper orange hues. The clarity of the beer is slightly opaque. A good amount of carbonation exist within the beer.

Nose: A rich stone fruit, grapefruit, tropical, orange, floral, and some pine resin. The malt backbone is there in the background giving off toasted malt notes, biscuit, yeast, caramel, and earthiness.

Taste: The hops are more fruity in flavor like stone fruit and tropical with orange and grapefruit. Not a lot of pine but some floral ester present. The beer has this very lovely earthy character with a nice toasted malt, biscuit, yeast and caramel notes.

The body of the beer is medium plus, with a medium carbonation, medium plus astringency, and medium finish.

I was not sure what to expect with this beer. it has a lovely earthy fruity quality with the floral and pine creeping up on you in the hops department. I think this beer, for me leans towards NEDIPA. The West coast IPA has a bit more aggressive hop bittering platform. I am enjoying drinking this beer as it get warmers it opens up to more flavors. Easy sipping DIPA.

Bomber acquired from a trade. Cooper tone with minimal head. Oily appearance that clings to my snifter. Tropical notes, smells very juicy. Dominant malt backbone, sweet with alcohol traceable on the back end, I thought this was balanced well. Medium mouthfill and carbonation. Overall this was very enjoyable. Wish they was closer to my home.

On tap at CBC 2016 - day 2. Nicely balanced IPA, with notes of caramel, orange zest, pine resin and tropical fruit.

Pours a cloudy amber with a wistful head; stratospheric lacing throughout.

Smell is tangerine and grapefruit rind. Mild pine. Malty sweet and rich. Just a great tropical aroma. Smells like a double rich IPA.

Citra hoppy front with satisfying drying bitterness. Earthy hop and resinous pine. Sweet malt back that meshes well. This just borderlines par excellance.

Creamy and chewy mouthfeel. Just pure delight.

Move over west coast, ya got a contender. Wow, great impression from a local brewery. This is not just a home run, but a grandslam. I'm not even going to compare this to anything, but this beats a lot of imperials I've had. Basically I'm floored, especially the ABV suits me just fine. Would definitely buy again. 18th street-keep doing whatcha doing.

Surprisingly dark orange, copper brew, thick and opaque. Topped by a cream-colored head with good retention and nice enough lacing.

Citra hops leap from the aroma, leaving a juicy and sweet impression. Dry biscuit lurks in the background, and deep breaths reveals a touch of caramel. More malt comes forward as the beer warms and opens up.

Surprising amount of sweet malt immediately greets the palate, grainy caramel, followed by juicy waves of hops. Resinous, bitter, juicy; grapefruit pulp, pine, citrus peel, star fruit, peaches.

Slightly syrupy and flat (not lively) mouth feel. Light-medium body.

This is a world-class brew in all respects save mouthfeel, which I found rather lacking. However, the Citra hop profile really leaps out at you immediately, and it is well backed up by a strong malt base.

I don't normally like the moniker "Imperial Pale Ale" for DIPA strength hoppy brews, but with the malt profile presented, along with a strong but not overwhelming hop presence, it actually seems appropriate in this big beer.

16oz can(undated) poured into a snifterloudy boasts, on first pour, a bright copper-orange, mostly clear, colored body, floating a a thin, whispy edge-hugging ring of tight bubbles leaving spotted lacing with legs. The second pour is a bit dirty with sediment.

Aroma is a lovely tropical hit of Citra hops, with hints of citrus pith, mango, lemon, orange, and even a lick of pine.

Flavors match balanced by caramel and biscuit malt.

Mouthfeel is medium, slightly sticky, and a chewy finish.

Overall a solid beer for drinking more than just one.

Pours an effervescent honey color with with 3 fingers of rocky cream colored head. Some hazing as advertised, stellar head retention & lacing

S: Woody & bready, lacking aroma compared to the flavor

T: Woody & herbal hops, breadyness, grassy with pomelo & a little mango up front. More mango as this warms, woodyness & tangerine as well as this warms,a little grassyness as well. Finishes with woody & herbal hops, a little pine, dryness & tangerine peel

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation, nice balance

Pretty good, kind of pricey & a freshness date would not hurt, nose is a bit subdued
