4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Huge pine with a hint of citrus on the nose. The taste is similar to the nose with just enough malt backbone to handle the intense hoppiness. This is a truly excellent bright, young, and resinous DIPA

Deep golden color from the tap. Short lived foamy white head. Big, fresh sweet orange candy nose. Big chewy mouth feel. Lots of tangerine, orange and sweetened grapefruit hop flavors with some tropical fruit notes. Long clinging hop bitterness the finish. Notable alcohol. Very much a fresh, sticky hop head beer.

4.20.13 drank on 3/27/13 Pours a pale gold with a short-lived small white head with little to no lacing. Scent is a hops avalanche of pine and apricot-citrus with floral hints. Crisp hops flavor with a light, sticky body and good carbonation. A great hoppy double-IPA.

On tap, pours a clear gold with an off white head. Smells of hops and citrus and pine. Taste is a nice citrus flavor with a good hop bite. Real light too, surprising.

4/20. Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is pungent hops and not much else but your not really looking for anything else with this beer. Flavor is again a all hop blast. There are some malts in the backround to tighten things up. Tasty hop bomb of a beer. Here’s a beer gimmick that works.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 8.02.13 version (drank on 7.22.13).
Absolutely incredible aroma! Completely different animal than the 4.20. Very floral aroma with super balanced but sharp citrus flavor. Sweet and wet finish. Amazing wet hopped beer!
4.20.13 version (drank on 3.26.13). Light golden with thin white head. Aroma is very piney - not a lot of citrus hop. Taste is very straight and bitter...not much sweetness to balance. Almost has a sort of dry, burnt hop taste to it...or a charcoaley bite. Finishes a bit dry. Edit -- on tap this beer really opens up. Much more balanced - the pine flavor really smooths out and becomes more drinkable.

One of the best beers I’ve ever tried. Sweet, piney, citrusy godness. Very impressive. Damn.

Some caramel, but mostly hop related aromas. Some floral and spruce, but mostly herbs and resin. Looks pretty, is soft on the palate, and is every bit as bitter as the aroma teases. Really good DIPA, it reminded me of Heady Topper. Thought the good Lord had dropped a bag on me. Is this liquid gargoyle ganj?

On draught at Cole’s. son of a BITCH this is good! Cloudy gold, solid lasting white head - aroma is lightly fruity, mostly massive resin and cannabis - fantastic! Taste is floral, resin and oddly like raw cinnamon - some alcohol. Average body, solid carbonation, longish dry crisp finish. Dangerous, so good.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 22 oz bottle. 4.20.13 version. Pungent citrus hop aroma, sweet, fruity and fresh. Medium body with a dry crisp feel. Fresh hop forward flavor with very light malt sweetness. Smooth and clean flavor that hides the alcohol well. Incredible fresh aroma, a must try.
