Lightly hazy goldenrod color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, tangerine, buttercream, and toasted malts. Taste of citrus fruits, pine, grass, sweeter honey, and a bitter, hoppy finish with light alcohol as well.

Had this on tap, and it was one of the best double IPAs I’ve had yet. Major grapefruit citrus taste. I could barely taste the Mikeller Tomahawk I ordered after this due to the blitz of hops. If you see this one on tap, and you love IPAs, you owe it to yourself to order this!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap At Brewforia’s new location opening day. A rather pale hazy golden color with a nice off white head. Lots of bitter citrus aroma. Flavor is a bit papery and a little soapy and perfumish, but lots of hop bitterness. Definately a DIPA bitterness and well attenuated, but only moderate fresh hop flavor. Fairly light pallate and crisp carbonation. Quite bitter and harsh trailer. A decent Double.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Collins Pub. Pours honey gold with off-white head. Very much a California IIPA--tonnes of citrus in the nose, but not much else. Some pine in the taste but again, the bitter grapefruit is the primary taste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a growler. Rating #70. The color was pretty light, maybe a medium gold with a nice white head. Lots of pine in the aroma a little citrus as well. Very smooth, but with a nice bite too it, more pine and just real nice too drink, real good stuff. (1190)
