From the bottle. Think white head. Aroma is grassy and some wet hop. Flavor is similar, really grassy. Much different take on dipa. I felt like my first instinct was the warrior hop. Overall good beer, napa Smith never disappoints.

Lubiere (11373) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
A golden DIPA with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with orange pulp, floral hops, doughy and creamy notes, OK. In mouth, a overly sweet caramel malt with floral hops, light menthol, orange pulp, OK for the style. On tap at Brew Hub Lakeland.

22 ounce bottle from california .. . light copper .. strong foam, lacing .. . woo! not over! .. . mild flowers, resin, and some baby pine .. . a bit thin in the mouth and has a stagnant aftertaste .. . . when I hear someone say, "chicken pot pie," I get excited three times.

R4N5H (386) - SINGAPORE - NOV 15, 2014
651ml bottle (shared) at the Tipping Point Brewing Co on Wyndham Street in Hong Kong. Poured into a tulip glass. Medium amber colour with a medium sized head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Heavily hopped, some malt with citrus flavours. Grapefruit, lemons, oranges and apricot. A lovely strong IPA.

Hopmaestro (718) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Aroma invades your nostrils with spicy pine notes and heavy malt. The flavor is wet and grassy, touches of dried apricots and sweet ripe oranges. Napa Smith has a really heavy, sweet malt profile on all their beers (that I´ve tried) and that’s not a good thing, but here in this badass it works perfect. It is almost chewy and a bit oily.

FestDecBeet (412) - - OCT 12, 2014
Look: pours a dark copper. Off white head. Slight haze. Smell: very vegetal. Sweet. Caramel. Hops. Citrus fruit. Taste: no citrus. Similar to a Lagunitas ale. Caramel. Slight bitterness. Somewhat balanced for an ipa. Nice malts Feel: minimal dryness. Leaves a thin film on the mouth like an ipa. Overall: good beer. Not overly hoppy. Feels like an IPA. But more malt than expected. First drank: home 10/12/14

tnkw01 (1424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle. Golden color, with a nice head. Aroma and taste is just way too hoppy. Malt is needed in beer too.

Fatehunter (1758) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Pours two fingers of foamy head on a hazy straw colored body. The aroma is bold pine and grapefruit with a little pineapple and mango in the background. The taste is big and bold with pine, lemon and grapefruit bitterness exploding though balanced out with some dose of malt. The texture is smooth. Quite good.

dmac (4849) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2014
12oz bottle from Epcot. Poured a deep chunky amber body under a large frothy light tan head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, dark corn syrup, sweet orange fruit, dark sugar, and vanilla candies. Flavor of vanilla candy, molasses, sweet sugary citrus meat, grapefruit rind, dark sugars. Big body, chewy, cloying, average carbonation. Meh seems more like a barley wine
