Pours a dark orange with an off white head and hops and citrus. Taste is bittersweet, of hops, big citrus notes with a massive, long bittersweet finish. Very good IPA

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange with small head that dissapates rather dast. Bit of lacing left. Smell of sweet malt, sugar, orange zest, and a bit of grapefruit. Smells super sweet. Bitter up front with a lemony pine finish. Some serious malt backbone and lots of sweet caramel malts. Very solid and on the malt side of the spectrum for the style. Makes for a relaxing Friday night.

Picked up this bottle while in San Diego. Pours copper with a white head. Nice strong hoppy aroma with lots of citrus. The 9% ABV is well hidden without being overly sweet. Great citrus flavor. Nice work.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle at home. Pours hazy light orange with a thick fluffy head. Nice refined pine nose, typically Nelson Sauvin. Body is rather harsh pine of the sme hops, and getting unagreeably bitter and dry towards the end. Taste is very hard bitters, green unripe appel, and even sour yoghurt. Hurts the stomach.

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours an orange color with a bit of head. Intense hoppiness that is a little sharp tasting.

Got to try this thanks to, "hannont". I must say, I was wary of anything from Karl Strauss as my only experience with their beers was their hideous amber lager which I paid $8.00 for in Disney’s California Adventure because I was desperate for a beer! I later found out I could get some decent craft beers or imports at Uva Bar in Downtown Disney (Whew!). Colour... amber-orange with a thick white head. Nose... sweetly hoppy and quite resinous. Palate... lightly cloying, with pineapple, stone fruits, candied citrus, grapefruit zest and a medium length finish

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a nice frothy head. Nice hoppy aroma with some grapefruit and lemon zest in the background. Tart, tangy flavor with a strong sense of hops and a hit of the alcohol. Not bad for a double IPA but I was hoping for more hops.
