UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 The aroma is citrus and earthy, vaguely boozy. Hop flavors really pop notes of grapefruit and citrus. Hugely bitter, lingers in the finish, delicious!

bottle, fuller bodied orangeish pour. strong beer in a boozy sense. shows off the 11%. Agressively hopped, piney notes, orange marmalade. herbal. citrus zest. Nice

Pours a golden yellow with almost no head. Nose is boozy with a bit of citrus and pine. Mouthfeel is thin and there is too little carbonation. The alcohol is too apparent and diminishes the grapefruit and pine flavors. This one needs some work.

Thanks to jdurdz for sharing. Hazy orange with a white head. The aroma is a mix of pine and orange. The flavor has some piney notes as well as some biscuit malts. Tastes a bit old but still enjoyable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Growler shared by wolf.... Bright orange in color, big head. Smell nice and hoppy! Lots of fruit and pine. Good balance. Taste is great as well. Tons of hop flavor.... fruity, pine notes, grass... but well balanced with out being over the top. I was really surprised to see this at 11 percent... I would of guess between 7 and 8. Really easy to drink. Overall: They really nailed the west coast DIPA style. Great brew! Thanks wolf!

cloudy golden yellow, as advertized, a real double IPA. The fragrant hops hide the alcohol. a truly dangerous combination.
