3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.
The beer is light orange hued and fairly hazy. The white head is about a finger’s width, leaving some random traces of lacing upon the glass. The beer is hop forward, with a touch of alcohol. The beer smells stronger than the Marble IPA, with a bit less tropical fruit and citrus presence. This DIPA has more or a malt and hop balance, as opposed to the single IPA, which is more focused on the hop character. Medium bodied with some lingering bitterness in the finish. Overall, I preferred the Marble IPA to this. That said, this was a decent beer and I would have it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, off white head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, gold (SRM 5) body......nose is pine, resin, grapefruit peel, treacle, floral honey tones....taste is heavy resin, pine, pineapple, toffee/caramel, floral honey tones, finishing with a lingering slightly sweet pine bitterness....mouth feel medium to thick, slightly sticky, alcohol adds light warmth, carbonation creates a thick foamy coating. This is a quite typical American style I/DIPA. Hop heavy with all the aroma and flavor nuances of that backbone, with just enough malt to keep the hops under a bit of control. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

On tap at brewery. Fairly gentle hop aroma on a cloudy orange/golden pour. Skin of head leads into big hop bite. Sharp, short, but potent. Makes my cheeks flush. Tasty, but pungent aroma enough to make this a sipper.

Stinky. First sip is a punch in the face. Pucker up. But everyone is spot on this is really good towards the end of that bomber, I wish I had more.

Pours a holden color with a good white head with some staying power. Great aroma. The flavor is fantastic, lots of hops, but not overly hopped like some DIPA. Just enough malt to give you a hint of it without taking away from the star, which is the hops. Good stuff.

from the cask at papago 7/28/10.
clear. worn penny - rich coppery color with a soft airy cask head.
it smells like sunshine would!... resinous, orange, grapefruit, wood, flowers and caramel.
the palate is a touch sweeter than i would ideally like but it is incredibly hoppy... citrus, dank, wood, toasty grain, caramel and a little ashiness on the finish.
the body is a bit too rich and slick for me toward the bottom of the glass but in small doses or with regular carbonation i am sure this is quite good. 8/3/7/3/15/3.6
