Nice slightly hazy golden color, decent sized inch-ish white head, thins down into a small layer of head. Nice lacing and retention.
Smell is potent hops! Citrus and pine, some nice caramel malts.
Taste follows, not surprisingly, to a beautiful combination of piney and fruity hops and nice caramel malt.
Mouthfeel is quite nice, light but substantial.

Excellent DIPA that hides its abv quite nice.

Poured into a snifter from a bottle. A golden color, slightly hazy, with a medium-sized white head. Great lacing in the glass. Big aromas of citrus and some earthy, herbal notes. A little pine and faint malt. The taste followed as expected with a nice balance of citrus, resin, pine, and malt. Not boozy at all with a great feel.

Acquired from CapCollector16 so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

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

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

T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of citrus and caramel that are quickly followed by a strong but not over-powering floral hops bitterness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Very crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Very tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, very good representation of style, this is a very solid 2IPA to drink for a long time.

This may be the best "west coast IPA" I've ever had.

Went to Columbus and got a fresh growler of this. Pours a golden orange with good sized head that leaves plenty of sticky lace. Nose is quite dank with some citrus, but is not nearly as big as you'd expect from such a highly rated beer. Taste is somewhat malty, with some sweetness, along with some solid hop flavor and balancing bitterness. Well rounded and doesn't try to just be a bitter hop bomb. Overall, very good, but would have liked to see the hops pop more on the nose.

Thanks to nollie77 for this extra, knocking a long-time beer off my wants list. That’s old school trading there. 12 oz. bottle all to myself.

The pour looks IPA light, sunshine yellow. Smells like citrus & oranges & rock sugar.

Bodhi - I seek to understand the true nature of this beer (sans all the unnecessary suffering). This is a thick IIPA enough residual sugar to make me twitch. Even more. Rock sugar, raw sugar, pour some sugar on me (which might be the worst song ever conceived), before I get to something that might resemble an IPA. When the hops finally show, they’re dank, resinous, herbal, with mild bitterness & full o’ scallions. Don’t kiss a girl after imbibing this and/or brushing your teeth. One of these is plenty.

WFT? Columbus IPA is wonderful & I’ve been looking forward to this one, but I feel like I just listened to the fourth Eve 6 album. Mediocre & a big letdown from expectations.
