Turbid as pour, and a disappointing aroma lacking dry hopping got me wondering what the hell that is floating in there.

All bitterness in the flavor. So disappointing. So much metallic bitterness. There really isn't anything more to write about. Oh yeah, it was excessively boozy too. This beer is not your friend.

Clear, light amber color. Average white foam.
In the smell the ho prevails, resinous, grapefruit, tangerine. Fresh and inviting.
A starting maltiness in the maouth, followed by the hoppiness, resinous and citrussy.
Same notes in the aftertaste, quite short.

Pours a nearly lifeless cloudy orange color with just a few bubbles rising lazily to the surface. Looks pretty limp and sad.

The aroma is quite good, fresh, grapefruit like hop notes. Tropical fruit is fairly strong on this one.

The taste is bitter and hoppy with plenty of pith and rind action really grinding away. Malt sweetness makes it kind of like a hop smoothie. Sugary sweetness and American hops do a nice job with IPA flavor.

In the feel, however, the carbonation is just too mild. Its not flat but not entirely far from it. Wishing for more body.

Overall, I am not quite sure I've reviewed a beer such a way. It is OK, as far as smell and taste, but like a few other beers on the market, the feel is just way too thin. With a firmer carbonated body this beer could be solid.

Glowing gold, puffy white. Green, pineapple, slightly boozy in the end. Aggressive citrus rind, bitter.

Pours a pint full of foam. After it eventually settles (and I can finish pouring and drink the darned thing) there remains a little scattered lacing and a thick film resting atop the liquid. As transparent as a filthy windshield, the amber colored looked rather inviting.
Smell is a nice blend of hops and malt with a hint of pine but that's it.
Taste is more DIPA than IPA. Well married malt and hops with a strong alcohol presence.
Medium bodied with less effervescence than expected. Maybe it all left in the copious foaming 20 minutes previous. Warming like a DIPA as well. Doubt I'll look for this again but if someone offers me one, ok.
