Aroma is sweet fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, honey, then piny. Appearance is burnt orange, off white head. Taste is balanced between sweet and piny, rather dangerous as I cannot detect the booze whatsoever. Mouthfeel is sticky, soft, nice. Overall, I wanted more in the flavor department based off the smell but this is very good anyway.

Blood orange pour with cream colored head. Lots of pine and citrus on the nose. Pine and grapefruit dominate the taste with some sweetness and citrus and a big malt body. Medium body light carbonation. Dangerous because of hidden ABV. Good stuff.

Draft at Logan's Alley - pours a deep gold . Huge pine and citrus aromas . Taste brings lots of grapefruit and a piney bite. 2014 vintage is well balanced and alcohol is hidden compared to years past . Hard to beat this DIPA .

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a stemmed La Fin Du Monde glass.
The color is a dark amber/maroon with a finger and a half foamy off-white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is hoppy with some interesting malt background. There is some interesting fruity aromas that come out in big beers like this. An orange and grapefruit aroma that is sweet and sour at the same time.
The taste is so sweet with a malty flavor I have to stop in my tracks and pry the different flavors apart. There is a grapefruit flavor that is sweet ad sugary and is so sweet it takes on a sugary mass of flavor with some slight orange and other citrus flavors as it makes up the tent-pole of this beer. There is a sugary flavor that is holding in the hoppy bitterness and keeps it from taking over. This beers flavor is turned up to eleven.
The feel of this beer is big, there is a whole lot of beer here and it is nothing to toy with. Some truly great back-end flavors and a nice slap on the back from the ABV is there to say hello. A beer with a smooth feel and a big kick.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Hazy amber colour with average, creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Resinous, piney and citrusy hop aroma, caramel malty background. Taste is intensely malty, resinous, sweaty, hints of purulence, almond, bitter hoppy overtones; full body, some warming alcohol. OK, strong and heavy - but there’s no proportionality of quality and quantity. In this case I’d even say, it’s simply too much and therefore a loss of quality.
