Poured from bottle into snifter, surprisingly pale in color for an IIPA, clear pale yellow...like piss. Smells great, packs a bitter punch with little to no aftertaste. Hides 8.5 ABV very well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light orange. Big hop aroma when I open the bottle. I like it but I would not consider it an imperial. The ABV is well hidden. Hops are nicely balanced with some dank and floral notes mixing. Bitterness isn’t super strong or lasting but it comes across well.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a clear orange with a large white head. Aroma is deffinatly citrus fruity hops. I have never heard of mosaic or calypso hops but they are quite fruity. Flavor is a let down. Sure there is a decent fruity hop but no where near intense as a DIPA should be. It has a dry maltyness and the finish leaves some of the hops but again nothing over the top like it should be.
