3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy, unfiltered amber pour. Huge frothy creamy foamy white head. Smell is citru and tropical, a bit light. Flavor is big and sweet, boozy, like a barleywine. The sweetness is intensely tropical. A sweet and boozy but decent ipa.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; malty though. A hazy dark burnt orange with foamy off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; juicy and piney hops with a big sweet pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with more of a citrus than pine hop profile. Average on the palate (the abv shows a bit). Good, not great.

A murky amber color without much of a head. Has a grapefruit aroma. Taste is hoppy with a dry finish. Pretty decent. Better as you drink more.

$5.50 for a pint at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan.
Mr. Delicious pours sort of an orange sort of color... a bit hard for me to remember as I had a BIIIIT too much to drink after having this. Looked beautiful though with a finger or two of head and great lacing for much of the drink. Probably the best part of the beer. The smell and taste is also quite fruity/juicy, with a solid bitterness as well from piney notes. Medium thickness and medium-or-so carbonation. Really tasty stuff. The orange flavor with tropical notes really makes this a tasty juicy choice for fans of fruitier IPAs. The only thing about the brew is that while it has some solid characteristics and a nice flavor, I still feel like it needs "more." The alcohol is hidden flawlessly, as it drinks like a 6 or maybe 7% beer.
I haven’t had many at all from Arbor, but this is the best of theirs that I have had. I’d definitely order it again. Very good.

Fine double IPA. Cloudy dark amber color with thick head and body. Not overly bitter, but a nice blend of malt and hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very slightly hazy amber ale, big citrus hops nose along with a bit of alcohol heat. Sticky and oily with big pineapple character. Not particularly deep, but definitely tasty. Not a bad brew.

12 oz bottle - pours a clear amber with orange hues . Nice white lacing . Big hop aromas. Exactly as advertised. Big juicy citrus hops followed by a bready finish and some alcohol. Overall pretty delicious . Pun intended .

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Bottle. Pours a copper color with a small head that fades to a fizzy ring. Aroma is cherries, oranges, and caramel. Taste is a bit sugary sweet but not too bad. Very fruity, light bitterness, light caramel. Warming finish. Decent DIPA.
