Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of ripe fruits, grassy hops, malts and syrup. Taste is sweet, malty and really hoppy with some ripe fruitness and grass. Finish is hoppy, sweet and malty. Pretty good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow orange with a medium white creamy head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet grapefruit and dank resiny hops.
The flavor is sweet fruity malts with lots of dank resiny piney hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, a solid DIPA. Right up my alley with hops and balance. Slightly too harsh and dank/catty/resiny.

Pour is a sickly, murky orange with almost no head. Aroma is a very pine forward hop. Flavor is chewy sweet malts with an underlying hop presence. The malt has a very husky grainy note that kind of overpowers any hop bitterness. Finish is a little sweet and syrupy. Not a bad beer and some may really enjoy this but I was expecting more of a eye opening hop presence.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice citrusy aroma.
Cloudy golden colored appearance. (I poured all the sediment from the bottle) before I read the label that said to pour slowly to allow the sediment to remain in the bottle.
Taste is grapefruit and pine with some funky horse blanket / barnyard stuff going on. It grew on me.

Cloudy straw. Surprised this is so high alcohol, it’s hidden. It’s smooth. Not bitter at all for a double ipa.

Bottle from nate321, thanks a lot! Pours a murky dark golden with a low head that still offer some lacing. Nose is of intense piny notes, some light fruits and a lot of ethanol. Taste is fruity and citrusy, offering some nice grapefruits and pine. Bitterness level is medium-high and the malt backbone almost completely hidden except for some light grainy flavors. Body is medium, mouthfeel slick, carbonation moderate. Finish is bitter and lingers for some time. A good beer.

Had this a few years back when I was just getting into craft beer. Nice to have it again - thanks Prufrockstar! Hazy amber pour with a nice white head on this. Citrus forward nose. Big malt backbone in the taste with a whallop of pine and citrus hops. Very nice.
