4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
If you know your IPAís you will appreciate this one. Does what most IPAís only wish they could by giving you a big beautiful hops aroma and taste, but manages to have nice clean finish. Excellent balance. Big flavor yet highly drinkable. I donít know how they did it. I think it might have made itís way into my top three IPAís. Maybe even my top ten beers.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear copperish gold with a persistent foamy white head. Nose is dank and earthy hoppy with a funky bitter pine/floral/grapefruit resin nose, also with a citrusy caramelly backbone. The flavor is full and wonderful with lots of unbitter grapefruit sweetness, some caramel, and resiny bitterness with some floral undertones. Ends a bit leafy and floral with a lovely resin aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2012 Recipe tweaks since inception make this beer even better. Light copper color. White frothy head. Nice malty sweetness to offset the hoppy bitterness. Great finish with a pleasant aftertaste. Alcohol is not evident so beware.

Growler brought back by BarZigKin, thanks! Pours with a large white head and clear copper-golden-amber body. Aroma is pine, herbal and orange light hops with a hint of pepper and caramel. Taste is alcohol, hops, citrus, caramel and a touch thin. Dry and tasty. Very drinkable DIPA. Their best beer!

Thanks to barzigkin for sharing this growler.
Pours golden orange with a white head. The aroma is strong grapefruit with some pine and orange notes. The flavor is similar with strong grapefruit, orange and pine hop flavors as well as some nice hop bitterness. Thin-medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Growler thanks to me! Appealing clear, copper body with a bumpy off-white head that recedes quickly leaving some lacing. Light pine and floral hop notes on the nose. Piney, medium grapefruit and balanced malt flavors. Pleasant mild, lingering resin and citrus bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel. Almost medium body. Smooth and balanced overall.

One of my favorite double IPAs. Nicely balanced, aggressive ABV and hops without being over powering or compromising the citrus notes!

Bottle. Light amber color, but the beer delivers a huge floral aroma and flavor component. Bit bitter, but the floral perfume is predominate. Big DIPA, but not overpowering. (#4046, 12/16/2010)
