Pours a golden amber color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is grapefruit and sweet malt all the way through. A little soapy, a little medicinal, a little bit woodsy. Not great, not terrible.

Tap at Sasquatch beer festival, first beer I had so feel comfortable rating it. It was a nice light amger color with a good head. Smells of sweet citrus and very hoppy, nice. One of the better dbl IPA I have had. Brought a 22oz bottle home to drink later.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange amber color with a diminished white head. Aromas of citric peel, pale malt, and a touch of floor cleaner. Toasted malt start. Oranges and ruby red grapefruit middle. Makes me think about grilled oranges. A bit too citric for me.

Hopbomb style double IPA. Pour grapefruit with lots of white soapy head, leaving traces of lace, greater the later in the bottle. Gets better later in the bottle. Earthy and hop aroma, and it tastes most natural and earthy up front. Drinkable stuff, but this is an assault of hops melange, malted down to get it down. Not the greatest of the style. Creaminess making it all the more palatable.

Unusual IPA. Medium bitterness with a grapefruit finish. Very drinkable, the slight oddness to the flavor keeps it interesting throughout.

Cask poured into Imperial Pint glass.
Pours a hazy glowing golden with a finger of frothy, frothy white head that last forever. Aroma is resinous citrus and piney hops with a touch of caramel malt. The bouquet is just amazing on this beer. The Flavor is identical to the aroma but with a long last sweetness and a pleasant bitterness. Its medium-bodied and just a touch sticky. Very delicious beer and extremely smooth on cask.

22oz bomber: Appearance is amber brown with slow fading white head, aroma had a nice bit of hops with some caramel malt, flavor had a little to much caramel good amount of hops but not enough for a IIPA but still came together to make a pretty good beer.
