COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The cousin of Simtra, but brewed with only Centennial and Chinook hops. Need we say more?

Light clear gold color with very small white head and little oily lacing. Aroma is weak- light citrusy notes- not much of anything. Flavor is weak- just a hint of bitter hops. Super bland- nothing too it. This is fresh too- only 2 weeks old.

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a clear light gold color with a white head. The aroma has bright lemon and orange with hints of tropical fruit and florals. The flavor is spicy, fruity and floral with touches orange oil cleaner and malt. The body is full and oily on the palate. The finish has strong, but not oppressive bitterness and noticeable alcohol. Similar to Simtra in it’s brutish assault, but overall pretty enjoyable.

Thanks to jimiantz for this. Pours hazy reddish gold with a small white foamy top and good lacing. Reader beware, I am drinking this past an "acceptable" age for a DIPA. Hops are still very prevalent in this. Aroma is a wall of centennial pine and quite dank. Taste is again a blast of hops, thick and resinous. I could only imagine this fresh, it would blow your mind. Obvious overage on the hop bitterness but still tons of sweet malt and caramel that tries to accomodate for the intense hop additions. Solid beer.

(22oz bottle) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of orange, lemon, grapefruit, passion fruit, and mango. Flavor of caramel, toffee, orange, and pine with a dry, moderately bitter finish.

22oz bottle. Tulip glass. Not my favorite. Honeydew aroma, cloudy bronze pour, very little dingy head. Black pepper, grass and honey on the tongue. Biting boozy bitterness makes you think long and hard before taking another sip. Probably won't finish the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. The look is cloudy, an off white head, and orange in color. The smell is fruits, hops, marshmallow, cantaloupe, and nice. The taste is hops, fruits, pine, bitter, and a biting grip.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a 2 finger white head. Aroma is piney and citrusy hops and solvent like alcohol. Taste is piney and citrusy hops with a really solid caramel malt backbone. Thick coating mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Quite boozy. Solid big IPA.
