4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Made it to Half Acre for the release. Haven’t had it from the bottle yet, but got some on tap and also on cask with more Galaxy hops and Citra Hops. The cask was amazing BTW, so if you see it, try it.
As for the beer itself, it poured a slightly hazy burnt orange body. Nice white frothy head. Aroma of tropical fruits, hops, almost no sweetness. Taste is very similar. Lots of fruit, good amount of bitterness, and not much sweetness, just the way I like it.

Nice body for an IPA, reminds me more of your yellow to orange fruits rather than orange to yellow. Easy to drink, definitely above average IPA. I get the resin categorizations, not really the dank. Maybe I don't understand dank anymore or never did, I am a long away from high school and smoking funny cigarettes in the forest preserve.

Bottle thanks to Bruce. Pours a cloudy orange with frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong grapefruit, pine, resin, and hemp. Medium mouthfeel with nice fruity hop, pinec grapefruit, and resin with nice bitterness. Very impressive.

Great dipa citrus bomb. Hazy orange. Mango, grapefruit, and lemon in nose. Strong tasting tropicals in taste, but some danker hops in there. Balanced bittersweet finish. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy coppery hue with good lace. Resiny, dank, juicy, and leafy notes harken back to those 1st Cali DIPA’s were hops were the showcase but the beers were still somewhat balanced. Sharp aggressive mouth feel. I liked this very much but HA double pale ale Navaja is even better.

Draft pour at northdowns "lions and tigers and beers" 2014. Dark orange. White fluffy head. Tastes like a stronger daisy cutter. Which is good. Hoppy citrus heaven. Really good

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Draft at Hackney’s Printers Row, 6/3/14
Aroma: Grapefruit, pine, some boozy notes, and bready malts on the nose
Appearance: Clear orange color, with a white head, and some spotty lace
Flavor: Has a fairly hoppy flavor, with some grapefruit and bread
Palate: This one has a medium body, aclean mouth feel, and some mild heat to it
I found this one pretty darn enjoyable overall. I liked the way the big hop flavor worked. Maybe it isn’t a perfect beer, and there’s flaws here and there (mostly in the flavor), but it works pretty nicely, and overall, I liked it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours unclear orange amber with a nice Lacey sandy head. Aroma brings sweet oranges. Flavor is bitter sweet oranges with some spice which I like, but the body is pretty big and syrupy this cold on tap.

Bottle thanks to csteele2144. Pours hazy orange with a medium creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is passion fruit, grapefruit, pine, mango. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, juicy and tropical with just a bit o’pine. Medium body, not harsh at all. Some lingering bitterness. Nice beer.
