Interesting honey sweetness mixed with grapefruit flavors. Booziness is masked and not very evident based on the high ABV%. Enjoyable and possibly repeatable.

22 oz bottle from Total Wine in Tucson, served in a stem glass. Pours clear golden-amber with a medium beige head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has big fruity notes, along with honey and bready malts. The flavour is intense, balanced between a moderate honey-fruity sweetness and a citric-piney bitterness. Notes of candy, malts and citrus peel also come through. It closes out with a long, peppery-spicy bitterness with a moderate sweetness. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a nice imperial IPA with a fairly fruity character. I wonder if the nose has gone down with aging. It would be interesting to try a fresher bottle. 2014-07-19

Looks refreshing, noticeably lighter than most DIPA’s I have tried with a big white foamy cap. Aroma is more malty than hoppy with some honey undertones, grass and light pine. Aroma was a little faint; I could have used a little more. Taste is surprisingly light, sweet malt up front with some hops making an appearance next and in the aftertaste. Very drinkable for 10%. Great for a warm day; I recommend it especially because of the reasonable price. It comes in an impressive, expensive looking bottle to boot.

On tap poured an orange hue w/ a creamy diminishing head. Medium malty aromas. Initial flavor is bold sweet and bold bitter finish. Tastes are malts and sweet citrus. Full bodied and boozy finish.

Not sure of bottle age. Picked it up at Peabody’s last week in Blowing Rock, NC. Pours clear gold with quarter inch white head. "Sweet" aroma - stone fruits, roses, very nice. Taste is sweet caramel malt...not quite to brown sugar, but a butterscotch type characteristic. Really overpowers the hops here. Some lingering and noticeable hop characteristic on the finish. All in all, very interesting.
