22 ounce thanks to Justin. Resin and grapefruit. Nice orange pour. Good hop and malt profile Pretty much hits the style right without overdoing malt build.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellowish-gold color with a white head. The aroma is awesome. I get a lot of pine, oranges and papaya. An extremely fruity smelling Double IPA. I also get a little bit of biscuit malt in the aroma.
The flavor is just as nice. I get quite a bit of resinous pine, which mixes nicely with tropical fruit such as pineapple and papaya. The bitterness level is about medium. A very easy drinking Double IPA.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(Growler thanks to jyoungsbcp) bright gold with no head. Nose is dank, grapefruit, orange, citrus rind, light lime, and a bit of alcohol. Taste of bitter citrus rind, grapefruit, not super balanced, very bitter finish, and uncarbonated for the most part.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meh, this is a pretty standard dipa for me - clear golden pour - thick, lasting head - fresh, peppery, herbal, minty hop aroma start things off on a positive note - the flavor doesn’t live up to this - it might not be as sweet as some dipas, but it is still fairly sweet for my taste, especially in the finish - bitter but not abrasive - decent earth hop flavor - not too bad, but not stand out - a bit of a let down, since I thought their regular ipa was fantastic.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Peanut hulls, unmalted and unhusked barley, and orange peel aroma. Cloudy amber, medium sticky yellow head. Overripe apricot, maraschino cherries, grain, bread crust, crackers. Very busy and certainly not boring.Some DMS. Spellbinding complexities, neat transitions, good balance, one of a kind, but slightly flawed. Entertaining.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bomber shared by Pineypower, thanks Dean. Poured a hazy amber with an average to larger frothy super off white head. Aroma of honey and citrus rind, grainy, slight earth coming out, maybe a touch of dry molasses. Flavor of dry citrus rind, toast, and dry old hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a slightly creamy finish. This good but it seems to be a bit old.
