12 oz bottle poured. Pours a clear copper color with a thin foam head. Wet grain, malty aroma with some citrus. Very nice citrus sweet flavor. Juicy, though finishes on a bready note. Lingering grapefruit. Very nice IIPA here. Very enjoyable.

From the 750 ml golden foil covered bottle. The bottling date looks like 02/20/12 (!) Not sure how I missed that when I bought it or why it would still be on the shelf. Murky reddish-amber pour with lingering off-white head. Yeah, stale hops with a more m alt forward character and something akin to pipe tobacco. Medium. Same malty and muted hop flavor. Too bad I didn’t get a fresh bottle. It became a drain pour.

A 12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip, the beer presents a dark apricot hue, strikingly clear, and with a porous and almost soapy looking off-white foam. Its depth is short-lived, the head settling, not disappearing but leaving a dignified blanket on the surface of the beer. The aroma is grapefruit with a hint of lemon, heavy spruce and some very grassy notes. Sharp, grasping. I can’t say that this is my favorite aromatic experience with a dipa, but it certainly isn’t unpleasant. I take my first sip, and the experience is a very dry bitter, the grapefruit and spruce coming alive in my mouth. The edginess of the spruce crawls up the sides of my tongue, dries the tip with a bite, and lays the groundwork for a long, drawn out finish. The medium body is creamy rather than an expected sticky, and is well carbonated without being too buzzy, carrying the flavors through to a very resiny afterward. I think that I would want to try this beer on tap. I wonder what it’s gone through in the bottle, and believe that I would have a much better experience with this fresh from the brewery. All in all, a pretty darn good beer.

Pours a half finger of head on a hazy straw body. The aroma is big orange and lemon. The taste has a big malt backbone, moderate bitterness throughout but balanced. Finishes a little spicy. The texture is thicker. Nice.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a very hazy orange-amber color with a small white head of fizzy foam. The head fades relatively quickly, leaving a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is huge of sweet tropical fruit aromas with lots of tangerine, pineapple and mango. Along with these smells comes some other aromas of a bready and slightly grainy smell as well as some hop aromas of grapefruit, grass, and herb. Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter tropical fruit flavor of mango, tangerine, and pineapple. Along with these sweeter tastes comes a little bit of a bready and doughty taste along with some hop flavors of a grapefruit nature. The fruitiness seems to increase a bit toward the middle, all while the hop remains constant. This however changes more toward the end of the taste, as some of the sweet fades a bit and more and more hop of a grapefruit and herbal flavor come to the tongue. Some grass and a bit of pine join the rest of the flavors at the end, to leave a rather fruit natured sweet, but nicely hopped and smooth flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. This mouthfeel is fantastic for the mix of tropical fruit flavors with the hit of hoppy flavors that sits on the tongue and makes it’s a flavorful, but still rather easy drinking brew overall. Overall – This was a great tasting and easy drinking double IPA. Fruity and sweet, but nicely hopped and very easy drinking. I rather enjoy this one.
