Hazy orange colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma - Pine resin and orange marmalade are the two main players on the nose. Taste - Galaxy hops provide a lot of orange pith against a sticky sweet malt backbone. Not a lot of bitterness. Soft mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Very drinkable for 8% but might get a little cloying towards the end of the glass!

beersammich (58) - Morgantown, West Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Pours cloudy golden with a small head. Smells malty and mildly hoppy, and sweet maybe like maple syrup. Tastes fairly malty, little hops, pretty sweet. Has a sticky thickness to it. I enjoyed this beer pretty well. I had this from a bottle.

Itzjerm (1421) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Cloudy but a nice head. Aroma is light tropical taste is sticky thick with a full body and carbonation weirdness. Malty very malty. Not a bad beer in general For a DIPA, there are better choices.

Not really what I expected, nice hop scent, deep color, but the taste wasn't what I wanted. Seemed more malty than hoppy, also had a lingering aftertaste. Poured from a bottle December 2014, maybe it was old? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Obfuscate (133) - Minneapolis, - DEC 3, 2014
Good double IPA, nothing that really separates it from the pack but a good one and worth a try. Pretty good malt backbone, sweet citrus and a mild bitterness for the style.

mansquito (3674) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Winter Beer Fest, Philly: Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma is citrus and sugar. Taste is rather on the bitter side. There is a lot of grapefruit. It is also a little bit sweet. I wasn’t all that impressed with this one. Still pretty good though.

33 cl bottle, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Hazy gold-amber colour. Thin head. Nice aroma, nectarine and hops without being too overpowering. Smooth, nice texture, stone fruit/passion fruit then a lingering banana hop finish. Alcohol creeps through at the end.
