Cask at Trinity. Bright gold and a little hazy with no head. Light sugary nose of floral hops. Taste of oranges floral hops and a little perfume. I donít like the perfume so this rates lower than most. Alcohol is toned down.

Tap at brewpub May 2012-pours clear bright orange with a rocky/soapy white head. nose is crazy tropical nose Dank as fuck-wow, lite green onion flavors of sweet dank hops yet a bit too much green onion, especially as it warmed up a bit. long finish of leafy hops with some nice tropical undertones. tone down what ever hop is giving the green onion this year and this would be fantastic.

Clear, rich honey-colored nectar. Smells awesome. Tastes bitter but is matched nicely with malty sweetness. Awesome flavors of musty hops, orange peel, cascade (?) hops, and lemon at the finish. Awesome dIPA!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Trinity. Pours clear copper with small white head. Aromas of dank hops, grapefruit, and sweet malts. Flavors of grapefruit, oranges, caramel, and sweet malts. Solid DIPA that is on the malty side, but packs enough hop bitterness to make it solid.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very strong hop aroma. 125 IBU according to the fine lad at Tap and Handle, yet the taste does not necessarily reflect that. It has a more balanced complex flavor than some of itís counterparts that advertise an obscene IBU level. It does have the sweeter taste that goes along with being a double IPA, which also hides the fact that the beer is sitting at 10.5 abv. Overall, a very impressive beer. A must have.

Pours a dark gold with a big billowy head that gives way to thick lacing. Nice light citrus aroma with hints of pineapple and bubblegum. Taste is big and bitter pine with a lasting bubblegum aftertaste. Dry on the mouth and sticks around.
