12 oz bottle. Pours a foggy gold with a nice off white head that leaves a gorgeous lace. The aroma is floral and hoppy, with a nice caramel and almost bready lingerings. The flavors are pretty much the same, with a little more sweetness, which is apparent from the honey. The mouth feel is great. Light carbonation, wonderful consistency, and a great dry finish.

Nice copper colored ale with a light creamy sheet. Smells like BO, apricot, peaches, resin, some pine and sweet malts. Nice nose. Flavor is malt, some cracker, some tea and peach. Overall the taste is more malty than I enjoy in a DIPA, but has a herbal character that seems appealing. medium on full bodied with moderate carb and a wet finish. Overall the beer isnít bad, but nothing special. In fact, Iíd recommend this for somebody that really loves DFH beers, seems to fall in line with their style.

Amber with a creamy and rocky bone crown. Aroma is dank with grapefruit, citrus, mango, bready malt and caramel. Taste of floral and vineous hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits, mild resinous hops and caramel. Decent and a bit boozy with a high bitter finish

Pour on tap, hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought big orange, grapefruit, nice bittering grass and pine notes, slight caramel in there with a hint of orange peel as well, smells very nice and hop forward. Taste is a mix of grass, grain hints of bread, into big orange, sweet pineapple, mango and grapefruit into some pine notes, touch of spice and yeast, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Nice.

A: Amber/Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, Thick White Head, Outstanding Lacing
S: Citrus, Floral, Biscuits
T: Citrus, Honey, Mildly Floral
M: Outstanding Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Drying, Mildly Sweet
Overall, a pretty nice DIPA where it gets lighter on the hoppy side and heavier on the sweeter side with the honey used. A different take on the DIPA and a nice change but not the best DIPA ever.

Poured an orangish color from the 12 ounce bottle with aromas of tropi al fruit, light resn and some pine. Flavors were pine and tropical fruit, light malt and resin, a very nice DIPA.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber color. Medium-sized rocky white head. Rich sweet malt aroma with a big pine hop bouquet. Huge bittersweet toasted malt flavor has a complex hop bill. I detect notes of citrus, pine, tropical fruit and chewy, resiny bitterness. The 9.4% alcohol is easily lost in this complex menagerie of malt and hop flavor. Despite the huge flavors here, there is a sense of balance that allows for a wonderful warming and spicy bitter finish. Nice clinging lace stays through to the finish.

Pretty sweet and sharp. Approaching the point where I think the malts might be overwhelming... but the hops nicely balance it out. Iím a fan of this brew, but not as much as some other people on this forum (even if you include the bonus pro-bono cleveland pride points!)

Dark amber pour with a large light tan head. Aroma of herbal hops with an alcohol (impy). light sweetness (p.4%abv), lightly bitter, average carbonation, slight bitter finish. Good double ipa, I would prefer more hops in the taste.
