Smells awesomely sweet and malty with lots of citrus aroma. Straw-orange color and pours with a very lively, foamy head. Finishes with a lingering bitterness from the heavy hopping. Flavors of orange, lemon, pine, citra hops, and black pepper. If you love sweet hoppy beers, you’ll love this.

thepatrickman (557) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - APR 18, 2016
Can courtesy of Clint (starcross) -- cheers, buddy! This is a really tasty, somewhat middle-of-the-road DIPA that has an absolutely killer name and a truly amazing can design. Hoppy, slightly fruity, and bitter, with a bit of yeast character. Tasty but nothing that really stands out in this crowded category. Bonus points for the name, though.

Concealer (1094) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2016
Can. Hazy gold with a foamy, white head that lasts and laces. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, earthy spice, bread and stone fruit. Flavor is grapefruit, mango, pine, earthy spice, light bread and stone fruit. Medium bodied, juicy smooth with a dry end.

HuskerTan (1427) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - APR 7, 2016
Can. A- Peach, mango, grass. A- Orange color, clear liquid, white head. T- Grass, alcohol, tropical stone fruit, bitter. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- The can is hands down the best thing about this beer. 5 stars all the way. It’s not a bad beer but I don’t think it’s a Top 50 DIPA. Plenty of bitterness and dank fruits.

JPDIPSO (5318) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2016
Golden color with a lasting, moderate sized, off-white head. Sweet, fresh hop scents. Pale malt, tropical fruit and ruby red grapefruit. Light sweet start with a touch of malt. Middle brings in the juicy fruits and citric hops. Mild bite of hops in the finish along with a hint of the alcohol. Good juicy IIPA.

Poured from a can compliments of my good friends at Brunos....thanks! Pours foggy orange with nice head...moderate lacing. Nose is hops...citrus / juniper...taste does it...pucker up! Bitter but so tasty!! An immediate favorite...will savor over my next episode of Californification!

Picked up a 4 pack on a recent Chicago visit. Pours a deep gold with medium white head. Great aroma of tropical fruit and dank hops. This richness carries over to the first sip. Great rich flavor full of grapefruit with a bit of mango and a long, bitter finish. Great mouth feel throughout. Very good.
