Mellow bitterness and plenty of melon in the aromatics and flavour department. Lots of booze for me.

From a bottle. Big biscuit aroma and huge hop flavours with a thick mouth feel, pine finish. Itís a very big beer and not for the faint of heart.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from State Line, 1/24/15, Rating #4250
Aroma: It has a fruity aroma, a bit of astringency/cleaner, with resin and pine coming through later
Appearance: It pours an unclear orange color with a small beige head and some spotty, coating lace
Flavor: Flavor-wise, thereís a decent hop bitterness, slightly astringent, with a mild sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a soft-to-average carbonation, and a rather dry, astringent finish
This is an alright DIPA, but it falls short for me. The hops and hop flavors are not all that well rounded. I found it a bit too flawed. Too much astringency. Still, its a decent beer, but in this style, it is on the lower end for me.

Pours a pale, hazy orange with a good lasting head and a Sweet malty aroma. It has a velvet texture on the tongue and has massive hop finish with big hints of pine accompanied with slight roasty characters. Get a fist in ya!

It poured a cloudy brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was moderate to heavy earthy hops. The taste was medium to heavy hoppy bittersweet with a good bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very tasty.

Not bad, but not up to SoCal double ipa standards either. Lots of pine and spice, with the citrus taking a back seat on this drive. Covers the abv well for 9+, but also isnít quite big enough elsewhere either... Good sessionable beer. surprisingly."

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Glowing ember pour with a fluffy eggshell crown. Rings of lacing remain in the glass. Candied citrus, sugar coated orange slices, resin, caramel, and alcohol. Beautiful beer that doesn’t quite hold up in other areas. A bit sweet for the style and wasn’t expecting the forward alcohol hit.
