This poured a very hazy darker yellow to orange color with a small white head. Aroma was lots and lots of fruit and pine and not much else. pretty inviting. Flavor was much the same, medium to strong bitterness, with tons of fruity and piney hop flavor to back it up. Great DIPA.

cheap (4053) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2012
Had this at the bcktown monaca, a really nice place, especially in the afternoon. Cloudy hazy bubbly looking thing that is the color of vanilla yellah. Very attractive fer sure. Initially the buds tell me it is fruity and hoppy and the olfactory is perfumy aroma, very overwhelming. Hoppy bitter experince is awaiting the taster let me tell you, wew. Lubricating oily palate. This brew is evolving; nice fruity flavor then big green hoppy chewing on grapefruit rinds: enjoy! Impressive example of the style, rrrrrrrrr. Like IPA? Ignore these numbers.
