Pour from 22 oz bottle. Aroma is ridiculous with mango, pine needles, fresh cut grass, guava, and maybe even butterscotch pudding. Flavors are similar plus honey and nougat mixed with a citrusy melange and a hoppy dryness. Finish is long, citrusy, dry and lip smackingly delicious. Super tasty and smooth for 9.4%. Superb beer

Had to rate real quick, just had for lunch, awesome XXIPA typical grass and pine and an interesting blend of peper notes on nose. Flavor is perfect of slight bitterness and super hoppy greenery. No harsh alcohol despite 9+%. One of best XXIPA. Have had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is orange citrus. Medium amber color with a pretty big white head. Taste is intense citrus and citrus rind, and it has a Lagunitas-like funk that I enjoy. Sweetness balances the intense bitterness pretty well. If you like intense citrus-rind hops, you’ll love this one. Plus, the label is very, very cool; the label is what made me buy this one blind. I’m glad I did.

Poured from the bomber, a nice brown side of orange ale, smells great. Starts sweet, then slowly turns to a bitter, but not dry mouth bitter. Great drinking experience, not surprised it won a medal. High alcohol gets the extra point, and another for being a nice change of taste IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, purchased locally in Solana Beach. I like Purcell's persona of The Dude on the label. Color is dark gold with medium haze. Heavy duty lacing and big bubbly head. Aroma of pine sap, orange and rum cake. Big sweet malt aroma with some cherry too. Flavor is big, hot and bold. Leans sweet and malty on the DIPA spectrum. Notes of orange rind, grapefruit and malt syrup with good bitterness. Overall it's quite aggressive and on the sweet side for my taste, but rather enjoyable and a good kick in the balls at over 9%ABV. Good one Purcell, see us around Oside;

On tap at the brewery. Yellow/orange pour with a white head. Pineapple hop bouquet. Pineapple hop notes dominate. Some minerally hop notes on the backend. Good balance with a nice malty backbone. Good mouthfeel and body.
