look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

The appearance had a slightly hazy semi orange/somewhat amber colored body with yellow highlights to help to make it fairly clear, thin white half finger foamy head that dies immediately leaving some adequate foamy sticky lacing in its wake. The smell had some coconut in the beginning (not sure where I’m gettin’ that, but that’s what I truly got) and after it warms a bit toasted piney caramel plays in my nose. The taste was somewhat bitter but still sweet through the malty bill that comes through, sticky caramel aftertaste, dry caramel finish. On the palate, it sat about a medium in body, fairly sessionable - pretty much as any DIPA could be, carbonated very well for the style. Overall, pretty good DIPA that I could have again.

22oz bottle with the new "rocket ship" design, which promises 8.1% alc/vol and 115 IBUs being delivered from a load of C-hops. ok! Served in a curved glass, this beer looks quite brassy amber, like an Imperial red ale. Minimal head. Aroma is malty and sweet, but flavor is an immediate onslaught of pine tar and old school, heavy handed, big alpha West coast IPA. But there is some malt aftertaste here bringing the IBUs, which could have easily been absurd, into some kind of balance.

Look: Somewhat cloudy pale yellow: -1 finger of head. Some glass
soapiness-lacing apparent.

Smell: Piney hops; floral note; apricots perhaps. On the downside, did get
some distinct cattiness also.

Taste: The malt backbone is there, but I found it a bit more subdued than others
have indicated. The citrusy hops are massive as expected and the bitterness
does build-linger. Alcohol fairly well hidden.

Feel: Pretty decent mouthfeel" Perhaps a bit thinner than I imagined.

Overall: Interesting pour. Somewhat in the middle of the road for me: I liked
it more than some DIPA's, but less than others. Would potentially revisit.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is surprisingly malty, hops, some tropical fruits. Taste is hops, medium bitterness, tropical fruits, mango in particular, a strong malt backbone. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a quality beer worth trying.

The big fruit. Powerful aroma of mango and pine. Sudsy mouthfeel with a crisp edge. Handsome orangey amber color with a plentiful froth in the Stella Artois goblet.

Dark fruit followed by the bitter hoppy taste. Hot mango and orange marmalade. Some sweetness. Extremely tasty big IPA. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Haggens Market in Burlington.

On tap at the brewery.

Looks good. Smells good. Tastes good, and feels good. Having this fresh and on tap give it a boost.

Overall - Recommended.
