Maybe little old by now and lost some zip from this bottle but good brew. Nice pine, and citrus aroma. Orange body with off white head that disapated rather quick. Good citrus sugary hop kick like a DIPA. Alcohol wears you down or I was just tied after work. Good beer

Bottle. Full head and very hoppy. Lots of power and the hops really hit you.
A classic example of this style which I loved.

on tap at Battleship. Pours a murky deep golden color. Big head. Aroma is of caramel, hops, citrus, and lactic. Flavor is similar. Great sweet boozy hop finish.

750ml : Pour is murky golden with a fine bubbled off white head in this glass. The nose is piney hops... an abrasive quality, with some caramel,sure. The flavor profile though, honestly.. is terrible. The hops are bitter in a fairly disgusting way ... in a one dimensional way. This is perhaps one of the worst fake attempts at creating a good product when you look at the high end labeling and cork / cage. Marketing is clearly leading this company. Anyway - no thanks.

750ml bottle $9.49. Nice orange color with a smell that is hoppy and yet somehow manages to disappoint. The taste follows the same tact, hoppy and its clear they used plenty of hops but the profile just doesnít do it for me. Its got a bit of citrus and its bitter but when I want a dipa I really expect something with an exceptional hop profile like Pliny or Sculpin. I would not purchase this again given the price point.

Pours beautiful amber with a nice white head. Floral hop aroma with some earthy malts present. Bigger body on this with a creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is piney and bitter with a candied fruit note. Nice malt comes in. Pretty good.

Bomber. Clear amber put with white head. Citrus aroma with western hops. Tastes sticky with hops all throughout that linger nicely. Really enjoying this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750, corked and baled. Pours a slightly hazy, somewhat rubied medium amber with a dense and creamy whitish head that sticks around for quite a white. Lots of spotty, streaky, drippy lace. Big fruity fresh forward orange peel on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, and orange peel on the mid palate. Nice and oily and fresh, everything tastes very well presented. Long fresh resinous finish. Good stuff for sure.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750ml bottle - $7.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Bottled on: 11/22/11. Like their Labyrinth, the cork was a total nightmare to get out. It took three grown, presumably healthy people and the cork eventually ripped down the middle requiring a corkscrew to excavate the remnants.
Appearance: Pours out a hazed, dark golden-amber body with a fully foaming, off-white head. Heavy lace on the way down.
Smell: A sweetish scent of caramelized sugars over toasty, bready malts with noted citric, woodsy, green grassy hop notes and some fusel wafts. Not entirely appealing, to be honest.
Taste: Sugary caramel with plenty of toasty, bready malts. Splash of liquor singes the tongue early on. Pinch of freshly swept sawdust. Heavy, heady hop flavors of citrus pith, resin-damp wood chips, and sun-dried grasses (and noxious, lawn-spoiling weeds). Medium-high bitterness. It remains a bit boozy (okay, more than a bit) through to the end (and beyond). Bitter, hot finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Slick mouthfeel.
Overall: Itís a DIPA, so itís a big beer, but itís too brash and the rough booziness tires me out quickly. Make a detour around Double Detour and pick up something else, something better.
