Slightly hazy orange golden with thin foamy lacy offwhite head; light soft sweetish aroma with notes of oregano; Flava is rich hoppy bitter with a malty start almost like sweet bread; feel medium thick with a little foamy fizz; finishes dry and very bitter from hops with notes of crude oil

Excellent aroma, citrusy and one of the most pleasant Iíve smelled. The head is actually slightly peach colored. There are bits floating in the glass. The head is medium bodied and clings to the side. The taste lacks the citrus nature of the smell, it is more rind like. The rind like taste messes with the palate some.

Pretty interesting DIPA. Has some hop medley that is tasty and lively, has some dry qualities that develop as the pour warmed. Bright orange in color, with some light brown hues.

Golden cloudy color, tastes of immense hops and a slight citrus taste, not to heavy on the palate, this is a tremendous double ipa.

Bottle: pours a stunning orange with a foamy off white head. Aroma is citrus... Lemon and grapefruit. This flavor is a bitter treat... Full bodied and biting... Itís grapefruit, and bread... Perfect for what I want in an ipa. Delicious.

On tap at the ISIS in Asheville. Pours an orange-amber into the glass, with a diminishing suds head that leaves sparse webbed lacing. The nose is all about citrus, oranges and grapefruit abound. Lots of orange and grapefruit upfront, with some cracker and rind/zest mid-palate. The finish is a nice resin bitter. Semi-active carbonation and a sticky palate make this bold offering a real treat! Yummy!

Pours golden with white head. Sweet ops but a bit overpowered with malt in the taste and nose.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin pillowy white head. Not much aroma. Mostly malt and some light grapefruit and lemon notes. Taste is really bitter grapefruit, lemon rind, apricot, and a spicy booziness on the finish.

This is an imperial for sure -- the A stands for ABV, which I'd a whopping 9.2. Resiny, pine-forward DIPA. Not a bad malt backbone. Subdued bitterness. Recommended!

Meh. I applaud this dive-ish bar for stocking better beers. This was poured draft into an ice cold 30 ounce mug. Soo Iíll be hammered by the time this is done. Not much aroma probably due to the mug. Taste is definitely hoppy, some alcohol burn. Iím pretty sure this was better last time I had it.
