On draft at Capone’s. Pour is a very cloudy red highlighted orange with two big fingers of foamy beige head; the lacing left was amazing and the foam lasted so long I had a permanent beer mustache while drinking it. Nose is citrus, hops, melon, mango, and a bit of pine. Taste is right on par, with a fruity, mellow hop introduction. This fades a touch, then you are smacked with a hop wallop (very bitter) in the finish. This is a very solid DIPA, which I enjoyed very much, but I would have liked it to finish as mellow as the rest of the experience.

650ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a slightly cloudy amber-orange color with a big clumpy white head. The aroma is strong with fresh oranges and grapefruit juice. The flavor, like the aroma, is strong with citrus, resins and a bit of caramel. The palate is full and silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long, dry and biter. Overall: I found the bitterness of this just a bit harsh, otherwise a great DIPA.

Wonderful DIPA. The aroma is all citrus and very prominent hops. The appearance is lighter than I expected, it is a golden color with decent carbonation and white head. The taste is very full of hops and follows the aroma with a citrus taste. It is the first beer that actual seems to have some citrus, mainly grapefruit in it. I enjoyed this beer.

Deep gold, hazy, on cask at Al’s, coarse white head. Aroma is of floral hops. Flavor is of flora hops, mild caramel/toffee balance, and a rather harsh bitterness that ruins the beer in my opinion.

Bottle big thanks to johnnyJ! Orange pour with a nice pillowy white head and some nice sticky lace. Nose is huge wonderful hops, lemons, fresh orange, orange zest, various bright citrus nose and generous amounts of floral and no detectable malt presence. Taste us full of sweet fruit and some malts and very little bread taste and zero caramel nasties. Plenty of smooth bitter carries through. slightly oily mouthfeel and smooth light carbonation. Very nice.

On draught @ Taco Mac Crabapple. Clear golden pour with a thick fluffy white head. Lace galore. Aroma was fresh citrus fruits, light caramel malt, piney. Flavors were big and citrusy, bitter orange peel throughout, this went well with the bruising bitter finish. Mouthfeel was silky smooth and full, dry as a bone. Tasty stuff, West coast in all regards. Fruity a big time mega bitter. Left a big hop presence long after the glass was gone.

Has medium body, a slightly oily mouthfeel and a bitter dry finnish. Overall, a very tasty and drinkable DIPA.

Pours a hazy orange with a two finger head, decent retention and lacing. Smells of bread, citrus, and pine. Taste has a clean balance of malt and pine & citrus hops with a slightly dry and bitter hop finish. Nice little DIPA.
