Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks to matboz! Pour is very hazy orange with white head, aroma has notes of orange peel, grapefruit, some slight caramel, biscuit, lemon, some slight touch of spice, pretty nice. Taste is a nice mix of orange, grapefruit, some hints of pine, nice spice, finishing fiarly bitter, nice and dry. Tasty stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Dan’s house, courtesy of Armin. Thanks a bunch! Hazy, golden orange appearance with a fairly small white head. Really a nice creamy grapefruity, pineapple cake, somewhat oily/resiny, a bit floral aroma. Maybe a touch old. Floral, herbal, a bit old grapefruity hoppy, somewhat bready flavor. Pretty good but a bit dull and aged.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle with big thanks to stfun. Thanks, Josh! This is batch #8. Pours a hazy, bright gold capped by a rich, fluffy white head that leaves sticky legs on the glass. Aroma is great with big citrus notes of lemon peel, white grapefruit, and orange zest backed by notes of dried pineapple, apricot, and vanilla with herbal grass as it opens. Flavor follows suit with juicy citrus notes of orange peel, grapefruit, and lemon backed by bitter, piney hops, dry grass, and hints of sweetbreads. Palate is medium bodied with creamy carbonation and a dry, bitter, herbal finish. Overall, a great dipa at 4 months old and I bet its amazing at its freshest.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, purchased at West Lakeview. I’d had this a few months ago and thought it was one of the best IPAs I’d ever had, and this one confirms it. Pours a hazy gold with decent little white head. Smells super citrusy, lots of lemon and lime. Taste is similar, bigtime hop bite. Phenomenal.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 16, 2012 bottle from Brett (batch 25). Semi-opaque dark orange or light brown pour with big head and lacing. Aroma was citrus and piney hops with a touch of malty sweetness. Taste was consistent, very well balanced and some minor dry bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium body with some carbonation. Bonus points for a cool name and picture on the bottle.

This dipa is just amazing! The aroma and appearance is very deceiving. Fell in love with the first sip. Loving the balance of the hops and alcohol. Kind of bummed I only have 1 bottle.
