On tap at eccentric day. Amber/orange pour with eggshell head about an eighth inch. Sweet bitter hop aroma, pretty floral. Lots of hops in the flavor, average tart carbonation in the mouth feel. Malty burn on the finish.

On tap at Bellís. Big punch of grapefruit, more subtle citrus flavors. Earthy and rich. Bitter hop finish. Lovely.

Draft at Bellís Eccentric Cafe (from backlog). Deep golden orange pour with a tight, light head. Huge citrus and hop aromas dominated by grapefruit. Super light body for such a big beer (this was listed as a DIPA at the brewery). Big, juicy grapefruit, hop and pith flavors.

Smells like heaven in a glass. Lots of tropical fruit.... Taste of oranges and pineapple. Light and crisp... Very good.

deyholla (8904) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a near clear orange with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of bitter citrus with underlying resin and sweet grains. Flavor starts with strong bitter citrus with a growing pine and resin note that lead to a bitter/boozy finish.

Draft to oversized snifter at Bellís. This beer is categorized as an IPA, but itís a DIPA. Looks solid; a cloudy amber with white lacing. Smells and tastes good; earthy hops with a malty backbone. Tasty!

This is a double IPA. I think the hops are mosaic. Super sweet and syrupy. Hops lend candied orange. Nto a huge fan.
