Beautiful deep amber color. Orange-cream head with a fair amount of lacing. The aroma was light citrus, orange & malted barley. The flavor is on the sweeter side, malty, with some citrus hops. Very smooth despite the higher alcohol volume, no burn at all. An excellent DIPA.

Nice orange glow with some amber thrown in to darken it just a smidge. 1/3" white head. Retention sucked. Aroma was a nice dry hop, not the level of alpha session or aroma coma, but still very impressive. Seemed like simcoe and amarillo all over this one.

Taste was a hoppy, flavorful, green experience, no match for the mild pale malts. All kinds of pine and tangerine on it. More pine. Hid the alcohol amazingly well.

Bomber format sucks, but its one of the best and consistently underrated dipas out there.

Draft @ Marriott SFO. Aroma is light citrusy hops. Color is clear dark amber with a white head that quickly dissipates, but has OK lacing. Pleasant bitterness with a little citrus, and a pretty strong malty backbone to balance. Full bodied. Didn't taste as strong as it was to me. Very good DIPA!

Dark orange pour with a tall beige head that gives way to a lacing that sticks to the side of the glass. Dank and piney smell, with notes of grapefruit, tropical fruit and salt. Bitter-sweet taste, with notes of grapefruit, gooseberris, unripe apples and herbal hops. The alcohol is present and noticeable, otherwise this would have been a much better beer.

Bottle at Gordon Biersch - Oakland airport. Surprising find, pricy, but worth it. Medium golden body, small creamy head, curtains of lacing on the glass. Dank, funky, hoppy, but still can detect the solid malt backbone. Lingering bite, mildly dry, but where's the heat? I'm sure it will catch me later. Deserving of its high marks.
