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.

2015 can. Taste starts with the sweet caramel malt that morphs into toffee before transforming into citrus and pine. Big and full but well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. Huge citrus hops, especially grapefruit. Medium body with moderate booze. If youíre into citrus forward IPAs, I canít imagine not liking this.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; cloudy orange pour with a thin creamy beige head, aroma has orange, a hint of melon and pine, taste has a grapefruit, some pine, IBUs taste pretty big, resinous hop, some mango action, has some sweet caramel in the background, fine stuff tastes pretty fresh. Artwork on bottle is excellent.

DrnkMcDermott (2902) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Guest draft at Lagunitas Beer Circus. Big piney hop smell up front. Amber beer under a foamy head. Taste has lots of Citra bitterness, but a strong pineapple component, too. A bit more malt sweetness, too. Under these conditions, I donít get much more alcohol, which is just fine with me; the flavor is strong enough to speak for itself.

Color is blonde. Taste is well balanced,little taste of alcohol even being at 8.5% . the ibuís over 140 doesnít even taste that hoppy. A really well balanced IPA.

BuckeyeBoy (3609) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 19, 2015
22oz bottle pours out a golden orange topped with a small head. Nose is tropical fruit citrus pineapple melon and a nice sweetness. Taste is more of the tropical fruit pineapple grapefruit pithy and a nice malty sweetness to hold it together.
