3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Grapevine. Orange colored pour with a white head. Huge hop aroma with citrus, pine, grapefruit, orange and even lemon. Taste is smooth and easy drinking, light carbonation, fairly bitter. Good beer, but nothing stands out as impressive. Probably goes bad pretty quick; apparently this keg was 6 days old. Id recommend as fresh as possible.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at brewery. Pours a very clear light gold color with medium sized white head. Nose is very floral with lots of tangerine and hints of grapefruit and lemon. Taste is initially sweet with some fruitiness to it. Tropical like melons and such. Then the bitterness kicks in to balance the malt backbone. Dries out in the finish. Still a tad sweet for my liking but very good and well balanced.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy and lightly piney hops, some pale and caramel malts, and light dough. Flavor the same with sort of a light hoppiness. Average texture. Not a bad IPA.

22 oz. bottle from Greenville Beer Exchange, Greenville, SC. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine, wet grass, and grapefruit rind. Nice assertive hop taste of...pine, wet grass, and grapefruit rind. Long lasting bitterness. Very little balance (and that’s ok with me). This really walks a thin line between IPA and DIPA and is an outstanding beer.

Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy amber orange color with a light tan head. Aroma is a light citrusy fleshy fruit hops, apricot. Flavor is much more potent with a moderate citrusy bitterness and some light malt sweetness. Very assertive. Light to medium in body with a lingering bittersweet. Delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy burnt orange with a big soapy white head. Spicey notes on the nose, light piney hops, ripe fruits like orange and mango, and a nice bready malt character. Really bright tropical fruit bitterness on the taste, sweet biscuity malt, resinous pine, and just a hint of spice. Really well rounded, love the citrusy and piney hops.
