3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma could use a little more ump... Though flavors make up for the aroma. Mild nose of peach and citrus, mixed with mild herbals and pine. Flavors of bitter grapefruit and pine dominate the palate. Good length. Nice sweet, caramel malt balance. Good stuff. Would drink again if I saw it locally.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2013 Tap @ brewery. Generic bright amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is floral hops and pine and a muted malt backbone. Taste is balanced pine and bitterness and a loose collection of malt and biscuit. Even but loose mouthfeel. Nice enough beer but a more defined mouthfeel would improve this greatly.

This is not your starter beer, nor is it for the low IBU Palate.
Very tasty, full of flavor. Overall enjoyed it a lot.

On tap at Tornado. Pours a amber orange with a one finger off white head. Aroma is of citrus (grapefruit and orange mainly) pine, tropical fruits/apricot, sweet malts, and a little alcohol. Has a medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter finish. Overall, a decently tasty but very drinkable DIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly cloudy orange pour with a white head. Really dank grapefruit and pine hop aroma. Some tropical fruit, a hint of alcohol, orange peel, and light grass. Sweet caramel malt, too. The flavor is a bit on the sweet side, somewhat boozy, and lots of pine, grapefruit, and orange peel. More grass than expected and a light bitterness.

I had this beer on tap in the wonderful metropolis of San Marcos, CA. This pour was a nicely balanced IPA.
