Pours a transparent amber with a half finger head of small bubbles. Smells of orange and sugary sweetness. Very light mouthfeel, plenty of carbonation, and hops on the back end. Nice and balanced, not overpowering. Would not have guessed this was 9% alcohol.

Fresh at the source, not who knows how old and malty from an undated bottle.

Very good DIPA. Tropical cherry, strawberry & Orange starburst candy and sticky dank pine hops in the back. Dry in the finish. I would definitely have this again at the source or if assured a fresh bottle.

Solid stuff.

Appearance - hazy yellow sediment but nice. Smell - massive fruit smell. Wow. Taste - sticky tropical fruit and no bitterness. No alcohol flavor. So solid. Overall - this is a great balanced beer.

Smell is very herbal, but the taste is not so much. Very strong distinct IPA taste

I live very close to the brewery, this is a delicious DIPA. Not mind-blowing good, but It has all the characteristics of a classic west coast DIPA, citrusy, piney and an added malt backbone that really makes the finish quite sweet and smooth, the only thing I don't like about it is at 9% it has a pretty heavy mouth-feel, but that's why I drink it very cold. I can grab a 22 for 5.49 so I expect this will frequently be visiting my fridge. Now if only i could buy black diamonds MOEsaic in stores.

Delicious. IPAS have grown on me. The look on this one is a very slight light orange haziness. The head though is almost nonexistent. The smell is wonderfull. Somewhat piney with tropical fruit notes. Papaya jumps out at me the most. All of the aaromas follow into the flavor. The bitterness is defiantly there but not overwhelming. Nice full body to compliment the delicious fruit notes.has become my go to ipa
