From QC. Clear light orange with thin white head and sudsy bubbles. Watery legs. Smells of wet crystal malt, light maple/spice, dry hop, apple, booze. Taste is deeply resinous and bitter, pepper, light malt. Body is slick, resinous. Tasty beer - plenty of resinous hop balanced by good amount of malt.

Bottle from QClub at home. Clear yellow golden pour with thin sticky head. Aroma is sharp booze and citrus good, sweet malt to back. Taste is similarly big citrus hoppy bite, with good amount of smooth malt to balance. Doesn't taste like 8% but does smell like it. Really good IPA with a sharp bitter bite.

I almost feel bad giving this beer a bad review. I am sure people who like IPAs and especially hoppy beer will love this. Personally, I can’t stand IPAs and so this review suffers because of it. The aroma is overwhelming and it tastes like a grapefruit punched me in the face. If you love hoppy IPA drink it. If not, stay far away.

Changed (397) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy gold. White head, good retention, plenty of lacing. Aroma is heavy hops. Flavor is tropical, fruity hop. Most memorable part of the beer is the feeling: well carbonated, then creamy, short bitter finish that leaves the palate refreshed after each sip. Alcohol well hidden. Not really a show-stopper, but a plenty fine DIPA.
