3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I personally would not call it a DIPA but this really tastes good. The mixture of Citra and Meridian work well together. Definitely citrus forward and a strong with bitterness but it does not ruin the palate at all. Good carbonation too.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at ChurchKey in DC. Beautiful hazy bright orange pour with a smallish white head. Nose is absolutely rife with big fruit character, including sweet orange, pink grapefruit, Hawaiian Punch, and bits of lemon zest. The flavor brings forth a distinctly fruit-forward IPA as the aroma implied, with low bitterness for the style and a sweeter finish, though still obviously hoppy and bold. Not a particularly impressive palate, but not flawed in any way either. Quite tasty, though maybe not meriting its price point. Still, very well done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at 2SP. Pours a clear amber color with a very white fizzy and fluffy head. Aroma is full of citrus fruits. Orange, grapefruit, hint of lemon. Flavor is not as strong as nose would lead to believe. The flavors are muted. It’s a fruity DIPA, little sweet, light on the bitterness. Dry aftertaste with a little sweetness that sticks to the tongue. Mouthfeel is light and medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottles poured to snifters, displaying a bright & clear, orangey gold color, with frothy, off white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The aroma was a mellow presentation of some dank grain, sweet bread, with citrus & resin. The taste offered some sweetness, a combination of citrus, pit, and tropical fruit, dank, rindy, & citrusy bitterness, and noticeable, DIPA booziness. Medium bodied, with average fizz, and flavor propulsion to the carbonation. A decent DIPA.

Sampled at the 2013 Artisans Craft Beer Festival. It poured a mostly clear dark orange color with a small off-white head. There was plenty of carbonation in this one. The aroma was plenty of hop notes with light sweet malts. The taste was of light citrus hops, pine and citras. Very nice.
