Bottle. Hazy dark orange with small foamy beige head, strong citrus peel aroma, low carbonation, sweetish start followed by bitter citrus peel taste, thickish body, medium bitter finish. The expiration date had passed, and it felt a bit too bitter. I am not sure whether it was because of that though.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a creamy off-white foamy head. Very clingy with lots of lacing. Tons of sediment suspended in the glass. Medium citrus and a pine resin aroma. Surprisingly smooth with just a hint of bitterness on the roof of the mouth and at the finish. Very well balanced with a thicker malty flavor masking any harshness or bitterness. Hides the alcohol well. Refreshing and very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber color with lots of floaters, clearly unfiltered. Nose is malts and faint citrus. Taste is malts, lots of sweetness, some citrus, and maybe a little very faint mango. This one is very similar to Sierra Nevada Hoptinum in look, nose, and taste. Not my favorite dipa.

12oz bottle. Pours orangish amber with off-white head. Aroma is Malt, Mango and papaya. Taste is sweet malty citrus pine and alcohol up front with a fruity mango/papaya alcohol warmth finish. Pretty good but a little too malty for my personal preferences.

A very nice IPA, feel balanced and bitter. Has a pretty great piney aroma, hints of citrus in the aftertaste. Tried at the Old Mattress Warehouse after Black Sabbath with Brian and Jess in 2016.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. The pour is a deep ruby, mostly clear, with a thin coat of off white head and a little trace of soapy lace. The aroma is surprisingly bland. There is a little tropical fruit, and a hint of bitter resin, but it's just bland. Light malts on the back end. I'm believing this isn't going to be that great. The flavor is a little bitter up front with some resin, but it falls flat after that. A little maltiness pops up on the back end and it finishes a little sweet. It's pretty much bitter water up front and then malt water on the finish. It's pretty disappointing. The mouth feel is light and watery with minimal carbonation and a lingering bitterness that finishes a little sweet and off. No bueno.

Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours a hazy pale brown/dark gold with a slightly off white head. Aroma is wet hop dankness with caramel and lemon. Medium body, medium carbonation. Piney resin, lemon, grapefruit, light trop stuff, wood, very light soapiness, a little toast... Nicely bitter for a dipa. Good.
