nice lookig beer sunset orange.big malty sweetness with alot of tropical fruits pineapple, papaya ,and orange juice a little bit of booziness. a tiny bit of the oak coming through. tropical fruits hit first then the woody oak aspects come in, then tropical flavors hit again with some booziness and floral flavors. very juicy. not super bitter.mouthfell medim to full.
a good twist on a dipa highly recommended if you don't like super bitter dipas. wood could be a littlle more pronounced though. but still a damn good beer .

Hazy golden amber in the Crooked Line narrow tulip. Big aroma of canned pineapple is odd but likable. This is so fruity and orange peel flavored it's crazy. Strong and alcoholic tasting. A scratchy, dark hop intensity rises up amid the mangos and fruit cocktail. A brief biscuit flavor.

Rich and tart with hop oils. Yeasty and kind of a stew of hop flavors. The bitterness threatens to take over, but it's so goofy you have to like it. Overall it's very sippable, fragrant, and full of fruit flavors. Bought a four-pack of cans at the Jug Shop in San Francisco.

Tasted on December 10, 1012:

A: Pours a rather mucky orange color, kind of like a hefeweizen, but darker. Medium head of foam, disappears rather quickly, about a minute.

S: Smells of hops and something very sweet, but can't put my finger on it. Also, a slight whiff of pine.

T: Not nearly as hoppy as I was expecting. Somewhat piney and very dry and malty in the finish.

M: Very smooth and not much of a long lasting aftertaste. Just a slight maltiness on the tongue. Very light.

O: Not a bad beer at all. I really enjoyed this. It was a nice change from other Imperial IPA's that focus all on the hops.
