This poured a hazy light orange with a white head. Aroma was of lots of tropical hops and booze. Flavor was similar, one dimensional Mosaic but still tasty but a bit hot.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Northgate Tasting. Best beer of the night. Pours a darker gold color than most IPAs. Super good pine and fruit aroma. Taste is a little less so, but rather a more tangy bitterness in the finish. Really nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly cloudy medium amber, white head.
Hoppy, resiny, quite malty aroma, caramel, apricot, orange peel, grass, herbs.
Off-dry, medium to full bodied, high bitterness, creamy CO2.
Hoppy, resiny, faintly cheesy taste, malt, caramel, herbs, orange peel, apricot, spruce.
Fairly malt-focused for a doubleIPA, just two months in the bottle but I miss the high hop notes on this one. Solid and balanced, but a bit.. meh? (2014-10-18)

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Table and Vine. Copper with chill haze fluffy dense head and lotsa lace. Grapefruity citrus bready aroma. Toasted honey and biscuity malt mild sweetness with subdued fruitiness. Assertive grapefruit rind and woody bitterness with nutty caramel and bitter finish. Lively carbo nation. I’m not much of a malty DIPA fan, and I prefer IPAs to DIPAs, but this is very good.
