Pours deep gold/orange, light haze. Big white head, lots of lace. Nose has pine, herbs. Taste has pine, earth, bit of malt sweeetness below. Hoppy finish with big pine and earthy hops, bit of citrus rind, a bit of alcohol heat and medium level bitterness. Pretty smooth mouthfeel. A good brew, a little different from most double IPAs, which is nice.

22oz bomber into a round topped base pale ale glass from BJs in vegas, sanmpled in Vegas. Def not the dipa i was expecting, pours more like a full bodied orange pale ale, with fire and amber waves as the background. Taste is orange, sweet, fruity, not as hop dominant as i would have hoped. The abv is lingering in the background nicely, 8.5 is not really a factor. Aroma is spicy orange, then sweet malts, then hops flare around. Drinks more like a strong ale/belgian in my opinion, and thats whats this is for. Full bodied and drinkable in the fact that the orange dominantes and is fun. This is all cushioned by the whole hops that omit pine resin, and cedar. A fun contrast on the typicaly dipa im use to.

Bottle to tulip Grapefruit, pine, and some spruce. Light amber, thin creamy white head. Initial impressions are of pepper and hops, then comes grapefruit and grain and some light honey. This could use a little more malt to balance it out, but it’s a fine beer.

Rating #854 - December 23, 2013 - 650ml bottle from Coop, courtesy of a very nice customer, 8.5%. Pours a darker amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is citrusy, grapefruit hops predominant. Taste is extremely hop bitterness tempered with a pleasant citrusy sweetness that disguises the higher abv quite well. Glad this beer did not follow the adage and stay in Vegas.

Pours put a bright golden orange with a dense and sticky white head. Tons of sticky lacing splotches ring the glass enticing my appetite. The aroma is laden with tons of resinous and piney hop notes as well as a hint of caramel and toasted bread. A bit sweet and fruity up front with a bunch of grapefruit and pear notes blend well with a toasty breaded flavor. The finish has a lingering hop bitterness with a ton of acidic hop notes. A lingering resinous smack with a solid bitterness.

Cloudy golden pour with an active head after an aggre pour. Nice lacy curtains left behind. Aroma is pine, citrus and a bit of dankness. Taste comes across the same with a nice astringent finish. A lot of DIPA’s are a bit heavy on the malt bit not this one. Nice beer.
