Poured from a bottle dated March 20, 2017

A: Golden yellow with a thick finger of foam. The head remained throughout. Great lacing
S: Piney with grapefruit tangerine and candied fruit aromas
T: a fine base of resiney pine with grapefruit rind, peach and green apple
MF: Crisp and dry. Just resiney enough to coat ones mouth. Would never now it was 8.3%
O: About as good as it gets. If you are looking for a hazy glass of o.j. look elsewhere. If you want an incredibly well made DIPA in the classic Pliny style this is about as good as it gets.

Bottle dated 030317 into a tulip.

L: Pours bright light golden with finger of medium density white head that had moderate retention and left spotted lacing.
S: Not overly dynamic but had very pine and tropical prominence with citrus undertones. Perhaps some floral notes too. Loved the nose, just wanted it more prominent, possibly due to age and travel. Tropical aspects faded as it warmed.
T: Delicious, balances all the nose attributes well, pine, tropical, and floral lead, citrus in tow. Loved it! Finishes very light, moderate bitterness and a hint of astringency, clean...nothing lingers.
F: Light bodied, carbonation on the higher side. Very light for the ABV.
O: Great DIPA, would buy it fresh every chance I'd get if in my distro. Hope to get it fresh again, great DIPA!

Poured from bottle to snifter. Pours light golden color with a white head. Floral smell with fruity/ citrus notes. Crisp feel with tastes of citrus, hops, mildly sweet and bitter. Very potent taste, one is plenty. Overall an OK ipa, nothing special

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.
