Draft @ Copper Mine. Orange pour with some white head. Aroma is full of citrus, pineapple, and light earthy pine notes. Flavor start with plenty of those hop notes and mellows in the aftertaste. Best exit beer yet.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2010 Poured from big bottle. Exit 16 - right by my house. Big hit of hops in aroma. Lighter color and clearer than most IPAs. Lots of hops, as expected - grapefruit and pine. Only notice the alcohol after swallowing. Rice adds to the balance very well. Finished well. Excellent.

Made the mistake of drinking this after a real DIPA this afternoon, Moylans. The difference was AMAZING! Even my Glissade swillin buddys were in shock. Cute little light colored brew with some floral hop flavors and aromas and a genteel spicey bite in the finish. Not sure how FF can call this a DIPA? The Moylans made it look like a rookie play. Nice but a tad tame?? Oh well.

Thanks to swalden28 for sharing this bottle at a recent tasting.
The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is resiny hops and not too much else. The flavor is more of the same. This is definitely a DIPA with an emphasis on resiny hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle Pours a clear light yellow with a good froathy white head. The head lasts well and produces excellent lacing. Has a good aroma of hops, I get grapefruit, pine and sweet fruits like pineapple. Has a good acrbonation. The mouthfeel is perfect. Has a good soft biiter flavor. Not too much but just right. The texture is a touch on the dry side. Has a great finsh with a smooth aftertaste. This is just plain one great beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Oak Tree in S. Plainfield NJ: A thick, fluffy white head sits atop a hazy golden brown beer. Citric hop aromas blend with notes of apricot and lemon. Grassy bitterness, notes of grapefruit pith and some lemon-lime qualities. Fairly dry. A solid beer, but lacks the fresh, juicy, resinous hop character I like in an IIPA.
