Poured from a crowler filled and sealed April 2nd.

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and golden orange in color with a white, finger width head. Good retention before peeling back to a thin, broken layer of suds and a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Good lacing, with broken sheeting and spotting.

Smell - Orange aroma. Faint tropical notes. Mild breadiness.

Taste - Follows the nose. Lots of orange character upfront and throughout; candied orange sweetness. Bready malts with a hint caramel. A touch of earth and stonefruit pit nuttiness creep in mid-taste. Light orange pith bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Soft, almost silky texture with a fairly dry finish.

Overall - It's not the cleanest IPA, but it's pretty tasty. Loving the strong orange punch.

Golden orange-tinged amber with a lovely big foam in the Omegang chalice. Hugely aromatic. Brewer says it's dry hopped with Cascade and Mosaic. Moderately sweet and quite malty with a big booty.

Emphatic melon flavor with some apricot. Very bitter aftertaste. This wouldn't seem like a DIPA from the ABV (6.8% for the bottle version), but it's a massive and robust beer so might as well call it a Double. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bottlecraft in North Park.
