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.

22oz bottle served in a Dogfish Head IPA glass, split with a friend. Surprisingly malty for a double IPA.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle shared by mathieuc, many thanks dawg. pours dirty if not muddy golden orange with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. doughy and grainy spicy malts, pepper, grapefruit candies, dankness, weed, mint, resin. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily and a bit sticky, moderate sweetness - a tad sweet for a double ipa at 7% but an assertive hoppiness provides a drying grassy-spicy-piney-citrusy finish. much enjoyed that malt bill - very atypical for a dipa though. very good brew, still!
