Thanks Nick! Hazy golden pour with a robust lasting white head. Huge oozing resinous hop character with bright citrus in the nose lead to herbal dankness, hints of scallion, stone fruit, and sappy richness. Classic American style hop bill, executed quite deftly. Medium body with caressing carbonation and a dry, albeit sticky finish. Stellar DIPA!

On tap. Pours a bright crisp amber orange. Light notes of hopes on the nose. Really strong but balanced flavor of hops, strong finish but it works

Draft at Pro Pig. Glad I was able to find this one! Pours a bright golden orange. Nose huge, big citrus and tropical fruit, clean, low malt. Hop dominated. On tasting, closer to an IPA based on the low alcohol and more moderate bittering. Dry and fruity. Great late hopping character. Fantastic IIPA.

Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, mango, biscuit, toast, lemon peel and light grain. Very nice. Taste is dry to light sweet and medium to high bitter with notes of tangerine, mango, toffee and grapefruit. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Great DIPA, just how I want them.

Craft Clerkenwell, Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting, massive thanks to Leighton for this beauty, 17/09/13.
Hazed golden with a good sized white head.
Nose is juicy hops, orange, grapefruit, grass, light pine, not as rich and aromatic as I’d expected but a pleasant treat to the nostrils none the less.
Taste comprises juicy hops, tangerine, grapefruit, orange pith, pine resin, toasty malts.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation that massages the palate, great feel, great beer !

22 oz bottle served in a Lawson’s snifter. Bottle a few days before imbibing. Huge thanks to kevanb for the share.
A: Pours a yellowish orange color with a slight chilled haze to it. One finger of white foam forms on the pour and recedes to a thin cap. Soapy lace is left down the glass.
S: Tons of citrus fruit on the nose. Hefty amounts of grapefruit with a mild tangerine/orange citrus sweetness. Minimal biscuit malt in the background as this is all about the hops.
T: The taste is even better and much balanced. A ton of grapefruit with fruity and earthy tone to it. Pineapple and mango tropical fruits with a sweet biscuit malt body to give it a little tangent amongst the heavy fruit brightness. Light bitterness rounds it out.
M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. This drinks like a single IPA/Pale ale with the flavor of a big DIPA. Huge drinkability.
O: Dangerously drinkable with a great representation of grapefruit. Probably the best I’ve ever tasted or smelt in a beer. Absolutely delicious and incredibly balanced. Hopefully I’ll get to try this again sometime.

Bottle I shared at Ryan and Paul’s 5000th celebration. Poured a near clear gold with an orange hue and a white head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma was full of pine, slightly dank, with a hint of grapefruit and tropical fruits and a bit of a grain backbone. Flavor had more grapefruit and tropical fruits as well as a strong pine note. Really nicely balanced.

Bottle shared at the 5,000 party. Poured a slightly chill hazed golden body with a slightly foamy bright white head. Dank aroma of cat piss, spruce and grapefruit. Flavor is nice and bitter with notes of cat litter, grapefruit rind, pine sap. Medium to fuller bodied with strong carbonation. This was an awesome DIPA and for those who are shrugging their shoulders when they read things like "cat piss", "dank" and "pine sap" are not true hop heads!!!
