Pours a clear deep gold/pale amber coloration with a medium, fizzy head. Smells of biscuity malt with hoppy accents of citrus and light tropical fruit: grapefruit, tangerine, mango, and a hint of grass. Taste is a great balance of biscuity, lightly sweet malt and bright, hoppy, slightly zesty citrus and tropical fruit notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lime, mango and and papaya. There is a light resinous quality to this as well, with a hint of grass and pine. Finishes with a medium bitterness and some pine lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and medium/lively carbonation. This seems like somewhere inbetween an Old School and West Coast IPA, but in a really good way. Great balance of malts and hops, sweetness and bitterness. Not a hint of booze or bubble gum to this, which is impressive given the 8.5% ABV. This actually drinks surpringly easy.

I had a 4 ounce pour of this in a bar in downtown Columbus. Like so many imperial IPAs, I loved the hop taste, but found the overall quality to be marred by a boozy taste. It's a good beer, but many other IPAs pack as much taste with less alcohol.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with a nice big white foamy head that lingers for quite a while. Aroma is a bit off - faint pine, citrus, I think the off smell is actually a big grapefruit pith aroma. Big beer here - loads of hops: piney, lots of citrus - orange, lemon, grapefruit. Great balance of hops and malt, nice amount of bitterness the whole way through. Classic west coast style DIPA, definitely a go to beer.

Pours a glowing amber-golden color with a spongy, big head.

Smells of a pungent interplay of ripe oranges and spritzy lime zest, together with a light, crackery maltiness to back up the hops.

Has an oily, medium mouthfeel with a perfectly nuanced, lively carbonation and a long lasting lime finish.

Tastes of fresh peeled apricots, ripe oranges and a herbal grassiness. Turns a little softer, due to a lively effervescence and an accompanying, bready to sweeter maltiness, which gets entangled into a dry lime quality. Finishes with a sudden, scratchy hop burst, featuring passion fruit, more lime and sweet papaya, balanced by olive stones and cakey malts.

A great, old school double Ipa, which almost drinks a little too dangerously easy, as it features an astonishing balance between fruity, bitter and sweet. It develops a very satisfying flavor intensity early on, and keeps it till the end, surpassed by the classic ipaesque lemon bitterness during at the end.
