Aroma is citrus and grassy. Taste is citrus, a tiny bit of grapefruit, some resin, with well-balanced malt sweetness. The bitter aftertaste hangs around for a long time. The mouthfeel is spot on for a DIPA, perhaps a bit lighter than some. Overall a very good DIPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a hazed, orangey gold color, with a bubbly layer of soft white head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was initially dank, followed by citrus notes as orange & grapefruit, with a bit of resin on the back, and some mellowing malt. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste included moderate citrus & rind bitterness that lingered, some noticeable alcohol, and a bit of malt/caramel sweetness. Decent, but just over the DIPA threshold, imo.

Super hoppy start and super bitter and dry finish. Like sucking on a wet hop cone. Smells piney and earthy. Light malt backbone. Had this one at home out of a bottle.

28.3.2014. Pines, fruits, grapefruit in aroma. Promising good. Smooth, piny, grassy, grapefruity. Fulfills the expectations of aroma. Surprisingly fresh and not heavy.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours a clear redish gold with soft white head. Hops jump out before even sticking in my nose. Tons of citrus. Orange, grapefruit, tangerine. Some dank/woody hops too. Flavor is surprisingly restrained compared to the massive aroma. Some grassy hops, alcohol, very light caramel sweetness. Orange makes a late appearance. Sticky, almost numbing mouthfeel with a strong bitterness and some astringency. Short finish but the bitterness stays forever.

One of my favorite IPA’s. Very healthy dosing of hops with 8 differenent varities, love the dry hop touch as well. Super hop heavy, while still balanced and tasty.

Tap. Small ivory head, small bubbled lace. Misty orange. Shyish hoppy aroma. Fruity hoppy taste, grass, grapefruit, mango, wood. Dry oily palate and bitter dry aftertaste. Very tasty and well balanced. One of the best of the style.
