Golden in color with fruit, citrus & pine in the nose. Sweet beginning with a bitter wash coming in the middle and lingers for days. Overall a good DIPA

22oz bottle in a teku. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best double IPA but not bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, picked up at Supermarket Liquor. Clear orange pour with white, lacing head. Aroma brings big dank notes with pine, weed, grass into some nice grapefruit juice, orange, some hints of biscuity, bread notes. Taste is a mix of herbal, grassy, dank notes into some orange, grapefruit, earthy notes, nice biscuit, caramel, finishing with more grapefruit, slightly sweet almost but fairly bitter as well. Nicely done, nothing amazing but great level of flavor and balance.

Light gold pour
Nice hoppy aroma of spruce and citrus, and flavor is just as big and hop forward, with citrus notes. Another great IPA from BR

Pours hazy amber with full tan head out of bottle. Floral aroma with hint of citrus. Flavor full of pine hops with citrus on the back end. Excellent beer.

Clear deep amber with a frothy cream colored head. Aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, and caramel. Taste is sweet, fruity, resinous, and a little bitter. Medium bodied, smooth, and slightly dry.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. California all the way. Pours a shiny golden amber with a bright white head of fizzy foam. The aroma is fully floral, a virtual garden in full bloom. This drink with a full-up creamsicle flourish, piled on with flowering west coast hops, too. Definitely made to appeal to the left coast, a bit out of balance IMHO. But still worthy of some props, a hit with its intended audience for sure. (#5465, 3/16/2014)

Excellent! Nicely bitter yet smooth and drinkable. Pine filled. Linger doesn’t over stay it’s welcome.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 22oz bottle, shared with Robby and Alicia. Mostly me, though. Bottle reads best by 06/05/2014. Mostly clear golden harley davidson orange / rust color. Thin, kind of bubbly ring of off-white head. Dots and ropes of lace. Leaves pretty decent lace, towards the end. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Great big resiny grapefruity hop aroma. I can smell it from feet away. Tons of good grapefruity hop. Good bigger bitter taste. Light sweet taste. Good light hint of the 9% alcohol. Very nice, smooth, enjoyable DIPA. Pretty reasonably drinkable.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 Wow. aroma is a huge, massive citrus BOMB. Nice piney notes as well. There’s a nice breadiness in the aroma, really balances nicely with the massive hop presence. Taste is just unbelievable. Fantastically bitter, it’s like drinking fresh squeezed grapefruit, mango, pineapple, orange, and any other citrus/tropical fruit juice that exists. Slightly sticky mouthfeel, dry finish. This is just a wonderful beer to drink, and a great DIPA. Surprised it’s not rated a 100.
