2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a hazy, orange-copper with a off white head. Piney aroma with a little bit of citrus. Taste is not too good - a little mediciny. Many other better IPAs or DIPAs out there. Will not buy again.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I canít believe this has the reviews it does! Iím really wondering if anyone has had quality DIPAís to compare this too?
A - Opened the can and immediately could see head coming out and a blast of flavor. Poured into a pint glass, a deep orange, gold, with a 2 to 3 finger off white head. This is how a DIPA should look!
S - I canít say enough good things about the smell, very pineapple up front, then grapefruit, sweetness, piney, orange, ends with on a curious note that is very inviting for a drink. Very appealing to the nose.
T - This is very complex to describe. Very balanced in terms of sweetness, bitterness, malty, pine. This is balanced so excellent. This is your traditional West Coast IPA on steroids.
M - A medium to high body, very smooth going down, a comforting feeling around the palate from carbonation, warming going down, I am assuming from the alcohol. Very balanced with the mouthfeel and very drinkable.
Overall - Iíve had the other so called quality DIPAís out there, Heady, Pliny, you name it and I must say, this definitely should be hanging up there with the big boys. Everything is so balanced, very drinkable, and I canít understand how this has the score it does on here? Perhaps a bad batch? I had mine fresh I know that much forsure and this was a VERY good experience. I will be back for more. The Dudes nailed this one, balanced, they brought the complexity of all aspects of the hops, enjoyable, drinkable and more. A must try for any DIPA fan out there. I will definitely have this in my fridge at all times. Wow!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky orange pour with a white head. Decent pine and grapefruit aromas, but quite sweet. Lots of bread and caramel, some grass, and maybe a light floral note. The flavor is fairly sweet and somewhat bland. Bread, caramel, and light grapefruit. Some pine, a bit of grass, and some floral notes.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
To me there was no hops at all in this beer. Pours an orange/brown color. Aroma is purely caramel and the taste is primarily caramel and bready notes. Reminds me more of a strong ale than an IIPA or DIPA.
