A - Pours a clear amber-orange with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some thick lace.

S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit and other tropical and citrus hops with some sweet caramel and biscuit malts and some pine hops.

T - Starts off with grapefruit and tropical hops with some bitterness and and sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine hops and more bitterness comes through with some more citrus hop and a bit of biscuit malt. The finish is a mix of tropical and grassy hops and bitterness with some sweet caramel and biscuit malts.

M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with dry and bitter finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice DIPA. Could use a bit more hop kick, but the balance is pretty good.

Great beer. Poured with a nice foamy, frothy, cream-colored head that lasts forever and a ton of glass coating lace. Color is a dark honey amber. Aroma is hop, malt, caramel. Flavor's like nose, a little skanky, hop, earth. Flavor's like nose, bitter/carbonic tang on top with a bit of sweet. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is very long on bitter. Couldn't drink many, but it's good stuff.

A: Pours a clear copper with a creamy off-white head.

S: The nose is primarily dominated by aromas of citrus; grapefruit, lemon, and bitter orange are all there. As the beer warms, subtle scents of herbs, pine, and biscuits emerge.

T: Notes of pine, lemon, grapefruit, caramel, biscuits, and lemon rind are pretty apparent in the mouth. There are suggestions of tropical fruits, namely pineapple and guava in there too. The finish is long and fruity with robust notes of lemon, grapefruit, and bitter orange balanced by a hint of pine.

M: Full-bodied and slick. Carbonation is prickly, but not particularly forceful. Alcohol character is extremely restrained. Very drinkable for the style.

O: This is a solid, respectable DIPA that really shows off the aromas and flavors of the Cascade varietal well. In my opinion, the Simcoe hops get a little lost in the mix, but the abundance of Cascade aromas and flavors more than make up for it. If you're into DIPAs, this is one that is worth checking out.
