Thanks Andrew! Hazy golden with nice lacing. Lots of pungent citrusy hop aroma. Grapefruity with harsh bitterness. Not a lot of malt but lots of sticky hops. I like it.

Beautiful floral citrus hop aroma. Deep honey gold with two finger heads that subsides and leaving good lacing. Sweet yet resinous citrus hop with some grapefruit and slight pine. Good but not quit that next level of dipa.

Pours clear gold with a medium white head...lively with nice lacing. Aroma has graasiness and pine...underlying sweet stone fruits. Flavor follows suit...no sweetness...nice bitter spiciness. Mouthfeel is medium and silky/sticky...finish is bitter with stonefruit/pine lingering.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dull, still gold with a swelling frothy head that leaves distinct lacing.
Makes my nostrils drool... yum. Mango, a bit of pineapple, banana, tons of lush citrus. A bit of malt is there for support but citrus hops play a delicious, dominating role.
The citrus comes in waves on the tongue. Some orange peel bitterness keeps things a bit dry. This beer represents the goal of a hophead. Damn good stuff.
Drinks about as smoothly as you could expect. Sticky in the mouth. A touch of booze burn but still pretty smooth.
I wish this one would make its way to MN.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to GraniteSkunk! Rich dark orange pour, disc of carbonation and an aroma of fresh juicy hops and pine. Flavor is also crisp pine, cat pee and orange citrus with a very light floral and balanced aftertaste. Extremely well done, not a single complaint on this one.

Nice pine forest aroma. Flavour is wonderfully bitter hops and some sweetness. Orange/amber colour. Kind of Hopslamesque. A great double IPA.

12 oz bottle. I think this one gets better every time I try it. I am glad there was a 2nd release and I think it is better than the first. Everything about this beer is top notch.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear orange copper with a small white head. Super hoppy aroma with orange, pine, and floral notes. There is also a nice malt body that complements the hops well. Flavor is huge hop bomb at first, with sweet, tasty grains and a bitter finish. Great IIPA, better than expected.
