Clear amber color with off-white foam. Aroma is quite malty with orange candy notes and resiny hops. Taste follows with bittersweet orange rind and piney hop resin. Aftertaste lingers with woody/earthy hop bitterness. Medium minus body with medium carbonation. Really old school IPA with some harsh hop flavors and some alcohol warmth.

Clear red-amber colour, very little sediments. Honey and sweet tropical fruits smell.
The taste is also on the sweet side (guava, pineapple, raisins) balanced by a very faint bitterness. Highly drinkable, inspite of the alcohol content. Recommened!

Bottled 1/19/16. Best by 5/19/16. 7.1% ABV per the label.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, candied citrus zest, grapefruit juice, pine needle, and earthy hop aromas. Taste is much the same with candied citrus zest, pine needle, and earthy hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid flavors, but the smell on this one has a better mix of hop qualities to me.

Serving type: bottle.

Amber color with a huge mushroom thick off-white head with eternal retention and leaving strong laces.
Aroma with notes of grapefruit, lychees, spices, pine, flowers and toasted malts.
Very hoppy flavor, made me sneeze right away. Then its malt base starts to show up trying to put some order in the hop orgy. Bold flavor with notes of resin, grapefruit, spices, biscuit and toasted malts, orange peel, tea bags and perfume. Dry aftertaste with a respectful long lasting bitterness. The 120+ IBUs mentioned in the label is not a fluke.
Full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 7.1% abv is well hidden.
No lo somos, ¡viva México, cabrones! Well executed DIPA with a traditional recipe (though this example has an abv more like an American IPA, but malt base and hopping is dictating the style); I see why they got an award on the WBC. Got the attention of this hophead.

L- Clear copper body and well carbonated white head.
S- Pine and resin.
T- Very strong pine, hops and flowers. Barely felt any bitter aftertaste. Good malt balance.
F- Smooth and rich.
O- My first double IPA. Amazing, but I still need to adapt to this style's hop strength.

Very nice IPA, not an IIPA as this page suggests. Pours golden hazy with a white foam head. Aroma is excellent of american hops, citric and fruity. Bitterness is well balanced with the mal.
