UPDATED: APR 20, 2013 outstanding DIPA. thick, luscious, chewy mouthfeel. big hops lots of pine and citrus well balanced w/ just touch of malt. very complex hop taste that is a multilayered wonder to taste. at the moment my favorite DIPA. unfortunately itís a seasonal beer that drakes only produces in feb. too bad would love this to be more readily available.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber from bytemesis, thanks Mike. This one poured a really awesome looking syrupy super clear deep orange body with an average sized tight foam almost creamy white head. Aroma is dope, so much going on, tropical fruits...mangos...apricot...wet older pine needles...older citrus fruits...loads of dankness, so diferent and nice. Medium to fuller syrupy body with lighter carbonation and a good dose of heat at the end to let you know that this is a sipping beer. Flavor of alcohol, loads of grapefruit rind and yellow meat, grains, dry hop cones that finishes with a slight hint of swentess that dries out quickly. Awesome beer.

Amber pour with a white head. Some caramel malt sweetness followed quickly by a lot of grapefruit, pine, and floral hops. Plenty of citrus qualities to this one. The flavor is very nicely balanced with some sweet caramel and a good dose of citrus and pine bitterness. Grapefruit and orange, pine, and floral hop notes.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Clear copper-orange body, large off-white head, sticky lacing. Nose is grapefruit, resin, a tad herbaceous and grassy. Flavor is similar with a focus on resin and grapefruit. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, assertively bitter. Tasty.

Very good beer. Pours darker than a typical IPA. Strong hop bitterness and nice citrus and pine notes. Kinda creamy with a lack of carbonation. Very good beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - thanks Mike! Pours clear amber with a medium off-white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine resin, a touch of cat piss. Flavor is about the same, lightly sweet with a touch of caramel, medium bitter lingering to the finish. Medium bodied and oily in the mouth.
