Pours a clean golden yellow color. Aromas of sweet pineapple, mandarin, and pine dominate. Taste initially starts off with bittersweet pineapple, followed by some grapefruit and pine. This beer is really quaffable for the high abv. One of the best!!!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Deguchiya. Pours a clear copper with a full finger of head that leaves a nice rim around the edges. Very big orange and tangerine notes that last throughout. A bit of honey as well. Medium body with average carbonation. Clean and well-balanced. Lots of marmalade, honey malt and slight bread-like notes. Finish has more orange and marmalade with some bitterness and a warming finish. A classic west-coast double IPA.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Strange aroma, slightly piney, but a weird cardboard like aroma seems to be present. Taste is much better, juicy fruits, peachy, grapefruit, tangerine, pine. Medium bitter, smooth finish. Alcohol is present. Still a nice beer, but not the best DIPA

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted during DIPA shootout. Came last among all our beers. Very bitter, pine/dank, some noble hop aroma, too bitter, unfavorable bitter character, something mildly unpleasant. Very fatiguing beer on that palate.
