Poured a cloudy orange body with good head and lace. The aroma is acidic with a prevalent orange juice-like smell. Bitter, sharp, acidic, crisp hop flavors that are earthy and bitter with an oily orange flavor and then hints of sweetness like tangerine and a touch of booze in the finish.

L - Orange/tan and hazy with two fingers of fluffy white head that clings to the glass creating lots of lacing.

S - Huge, bitter citrus hops with orange and grapefruit at the front.

T - The citrus is more muted but melon comes through strongly really showcasing the Amarillo hops. There is also some pine resin and a very bitter finish.

M - There is a slick, thick feel with heavy carbonation and a lingering bitterness.

O - This is very nice but it's a little harsh for me.

Finally had my chance to have it at Aslin's 2nd anniversary and it did not disappoint. Just an all-around superb DIPA. It's unfortunate that its so hard to come by, but you really must try and get it if you can.

14 Days Old!

Poured into a Squatters true pint glass a really nice cloudy yellow/orangy color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger plus white head, which also leaves some pretty nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango), nice little diesel like. The taste is really nice, hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango), with some nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden pretty well. with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a really nice brew. Addictive! Orange Julius! Glad to have gotten a chance to try this one. Thanks Craig!
